Lee Purdy Warns: If I Connect, Alexander is Going Down

Lee Purdy has warned Devon Alexander that he will put on an explosive show in Atlantic City as he bids to rip the IBF welterweight title from his grasp on Saturday night live on Sky Sports HD1.

Purdy tackles the St. Louis man at the famous Boardwalk Hall and said he’s far from a fan of the St. Louis champ, but believes the pressure is all on the American to impress on home soil.

“I've watched a lot of his fights since we got the fight and he's not looked great recently,” said Purdy. “He's been holding a lot in recent fights which is why I mentioned that. His style doesn't impress me which is why I don't watch him. I think I can land big shots on him and make him fight my fight, and if I connect cleanly on him there's only one place he's going to go and that's to the canvas. He says he wants to fight the biggest names in the game, no-one here has heard of me so he has to look good against me and he's not going to if he's just going to hold.

“I want him to have a clean fight. I don't want to just hold, get through and nick fights on points, I'm here to entertain and please the fans because that's what they pay their money to see.”

The Colchester man took the fight at late notice after Sheffield star and stable mate Kell Brook was forced out through injury, but Purdy says he is more than prepared to take the fight to Alexander.

“I fought in March and was back in the gym ticking over so I am absolutely ready for this. My punching power is underestimated, I'm tough and durable and I'm out here to win, I'm not here to make the numbers up. If he underestimates me it's a big mistake and it will be all over for him. Tune in, it's going to be a great fight and an explosive performance.”

He's no Honeyghan, but then again Alexander is no Curry. But Alexander will have absolutely no problems keeping Purdy at arms length. Think Purdy will get pulled out around the 9th. Plus that Lynes fight seems like yesterday. Purdy can be exciting, but only if he's not being outclassed, whi...

[QUOTE=sicko]Something tells me Purdy may give Alexander some problems, Alexander is just not getting better as a fighter and his in ring IQ is extremely low, that man will do the same sh1t for 12 Rounds it is fukin frustrating to watch because he has speed, he does have footwork but the long the...

Props to Purdy for even getting to world title level. I agree with Demise - he is probably the the 4th or 5th best Brit is his weight class. He has strung some decent wins together after getting humbled by a very long in the tooth Colin Lynes. He is quite big at the weight though so I expect hi...

As Purdy is from my town and even our first British title winner, it would be incredible if he could pull off an upset. Alexander should have far too class though. Purdy has no business fighting at that level but I just hope he produces the fight of his life and at least gives Alexander a few pr...

@Pr23. By elite I mean someone who has variously held the IBF and WBC world title belts and beaten other champions of reasonable repute like Witter, Urango, the rated Matthyse and Maidana in arguably the most competitive division in professional boxing at the moment. I did not use the wor...
