Yesterday BoxingScene.com broke the news that Devon Alexander's second defense of his IBF welterweight title will take place on November 30th in his hometown St. Louis, MO and that his opponent likely will be undefeated welterweight contender Shawn Porter.
Earlier this year Porter's father and trainer Ken told BoxingScene.com that they wanted to face Alexander. He said that not only did they want a crack at Alexander's belt, but also a chance at revenge for a loss Porter suffered to Alexander in the amateurs.
After the news of the potential fight broke, BoxingScene.com spoke to Alexander's manager and trainer Kevin Cunningham who had this message for Team Porter.
"I think Shawn Porter's a strong, tough fighter. He's a worthy challenger, being as though Khan didn't have the balls to step up. Hopefully this fight gets done, so Ken Porter can get his wish. Be careful what you wish for," Cunningham stated.
