Yeah Bradley was physical with him but he didn't manhandle him...he pushed him back, came in with his head and just threw a lot of punches and didn't let Alexander relax or think, theres a HUGE difference.
I don't think the British public do think that.
Kell isn't a knockout artist but he does have power and he is big for a welterweight. Because he times his punches really really well and he does have a bit of power, he wears opponents down.
I think what Eddie Hearn is saying is that Alexander seems to believe that his best bet is to take the fight inside and stifle Kell, but Kell is big and strong and I think he might overpower him on the inside.
