Hearn: Alexander Can't Punch, Good Fight For Khan
By Edward Chaykovsky
Promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sport believes IBF welterweight champion Devon Alexander (24-1, 13KOs) is a very good match for Amir Khan (28-3, 19KOs) at 147-pounds. Khan plans to return on December 7th and says the date will mark his debut in the welterweight division. The rumored opponent is Alexander, who first needs to retain his title on Saturday night against Lee Purdy in Atlantic City.
"Devon Alexander might be a reasonable fight for him. Alexander can't punch that hard and if I was Amir's promoter I'd never put him near a puncher. He's been knocked out at lightweight, knocked out at light-welterweight - at welter it would be even worse for him. You've got to match him very carefully and Alexander is one of the few fights you could get away with because he's very skilful but not a big puncher. It would make sense," Hearn told Sky Sports.

[B][QUOTE=Sweden2716;13378821]Alexander is a boring fighter, he quit against Bradley, you would have to pay me to watch him fight. Khan would win a fight between the two. Alexander just rubs me the wrong way, Alexander just cannot fight.[/QUOTE][/B] I think…Post a Comment - View More User Comments (56)
