Team Alexander: Bailey Not Be Lucky This Time in Vegas

By Ryan Burton

Shortly after the IBF welterweight title fight between champion Randall Bailey and Devon Alexander found a home at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, NV the war of words between the two camps erupted again. The salvo that reignited spark was sent by Randall Bailey who told ATG Radio and BoxingScene's Jake Donovan (who is also a co-host on the show) that he is looking forward to, "f***ing Alexander up" when they meet in the ring on September 8th. The story can be found here:http://www.boxingscene.com/r-bailey-im-looking-forward-fing-alexander-up--56089

Bailey won the title this past June at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas via a vicious 11th round knockout of Mike Jones on the undercard of the Manny Pacquiao-Tim Bradley pay-per-view fight. Bailey was down by a wide margin on all three scorecards when the stoppage occurred. Alexander's manager and trainer Kevin Cunningham said that Bailey won't be as fortunate when he meets his fighter in their Showtime televised fight.

"Bailey threw a lucky seven the last time he was in Vegas. On September 8th he will come up with snake eyes," Cunningham told confidently told BoxingScene.

In the evening's co-featured fight, hard hitting Lucas Matthysse will face Ajose Olusegun for the vacant WBC junior welterweight title.

Alexander is coming into his own right now. Alexander is gonna bust Bailey up and negate his power with fierce offence and movement. Alexander could have stopped Maidana, I believe he will stop Bailey. 147 is his weight.
