Devon Alexander: This is a Statement Fight For Me!

By Edward Chaykovsky

The last time Devon Alexander suffered a loss, to Timothy Bradley, he returned to the ring and dominated Marcos Maidana. Last December Alexander was shocked by Shawn Porter and lost his IBF welterweight crown. Now the two-division champion will return on Saturday night to face tough Mexican puncher Jesus Soto Karass.

Alexander (25-2, 14 KOs) vs. Soto Karass (28-9-3, 18 KOs) will open up a Showtime televised tripleheader event from the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

"This is a statement fight for me. I belong on top and I want to be on top. I have beaten some tough guys out there and on Saturday night I want to prove to you that I am the best. I plan on making a statement in the welterweight division and I look forward to the opportunity to show the world what I am capable of," Alexander said.

Haymon-protected fighters are not fighting each other again. Alexander vs Guerrero would have been the better fight. You can see why these people are signing up with Haymon. They want to be protected and get paid for fighting nobodies. How…
