BoxingScene.com recently caught up with former Kevin Cunningham, the trainer and manager of former unified junior welterweight champion Devon Alexander. It was recently announced that Alexander will return to the ring on August 18th on Showtime. Cunningham said that they have a few names in mind but admitted their options are slim.
 
"We are just trying to see what works and go from there. There really isn't a lot to choose from in terms of big fights.  We got a couple guys we are looking at.  The biggest fight at this time that can be made is versus the new WBA champ, Paulie Malignaggi. There are other big names but I don't think they will be available in August," said Cunningham pointing out that most of the other top welterweights are already tied up with fights.

Lamont Peterson and Amir Khan have their rematch in two weeks. Victor Ortiz and Andre erto who would also be candidates square off again on June 23rd.

"If it doesn't happen then no big deal. Paulie's gonna do what's best for Paulie and I'm going to do what is best for Devon," stated Cunningham.  "We just have to fight the best available guy. The guy with the most recognizable name to the fans. If we don't do something big in August we just need to take care of business so we can get something bigger later," he continued.

Cunningham said another option is Shane Mosley who just lost a unanimous decision to Saul "Canelo" Alvarez. The fight was contested at 154 pounds but most of Mosley's recent fights have taken place at the welterweight limit where Alexander currently campaigns.

"Speaking of names I didn't think Shane Mosley did too bad tonight with Canelo. Canelo is a young guy and is supposed to be the next superstar and all of that but  Shane went 12 hard rounds and was in the fight," Cunningham opined. 

Alexander is known for drawing good crowds in St. Louis and Cunningham predicted that a fight against Mosley would be a hit at the box office.

"That is another name that I would hopefully match Devon up with. That is a fight that could do big numbers, a huge gate in St. Louis," Cunningham said.
