Team Alexander Rip Brook: He'll Be Exposed, Fire Hearn
By Ryan Burton
In a recent video interview at secondsout.com, Kell Brook's trainer Dominic Ingle labeled IBF welterweight champion Devon Alexander as a quitter and said that he will fold again when he goes up against a tough young fighter like his pupil. Alexander's manager and trainer Kevin Cunningham took exception to those comments and wants to remind Ingle of what his fighter Junior Witter did when he faced Alexander in 2009.
"Dominic Ingle calls Devon a quitter. Hey Dominic you must have forgot that you were in the corner when Devon made Junior Witter quit," Cunningham told BoxingScene.com. He also predicted that Brook will be looking for a new team after Brook faces Alexander. "After the fight Kell's going to fire (Eddie) Hearn and Ingle for putting him in this trick bag. They have fed Kell nothing but bums and then they bring him to the States to deal with a young seasoned champion. Come on man."
Alexander-Brook takes place on February 23rd at the Masonic Temple in Detroit, Michigan. Showtime will televise the bout along with the co-featured fight between IBF junior middleweight champion Cornelius Bundrage and Ishe Smith.

Can't wait for this fight. Each time giving it the banter...Cunningham talking trash as usual and Devon staying quiet behind his idiotic manager. Big step up for Kell, but I believe it is a step up in the WW division…Comment by LacedUp on 02-01-2013
[QUOTE=G22;12979802]Ingle shouldnt be talking about Alexander quitting when he already took a fighter over to the States that quit against Devon. Junior Witter wasnt even in that much trouble so it was surprising that he just suddenly gave up and…Post a Comment - View More User Comments (35)
