Team Alexander Welcome Andre Berto Clash Next

By Rick Reeno

Kevin Cunningham, trainer of former two division world champion Devon Alexander, would welcome a crossroads fight with fellow former champ Andre Berto.

Both fighters are looking to bounce back from their defeats in 2013. Alexander (25-2, 14KOs) lost a twelve unanimous round decision, and his IBF welterweight crown, to Shawn Porter last December. Berto (28-3, 22KOs) lost a twelve round decision to Robert Guerrero in 2012, and then came back in July of 2013 and was knocked out in the twelfth round of an action-packed fight with Jesus Soto-Karass.

Other than Berto, Cunningham would like to see a St. Louis grudge match with Zab Judah. In 2005, before a crowd of over 20,000 in St Louis, Judah captured the unified welterweight crown by knocking out Cory Spinks in the ninth round. Spinks was also trained by Cunningham, who feels an Alexander-Judah fight would do big business in the St. Louis area.

"They can call [Alexander-Berto] - "Crossroads"...meet me at the crossroads. If I had a choice for Devon's next fight, it would be Zab Judah in St. Louis or Berto anywhere. Those are the two fights that would make a lot of sense for Devon. We have to see what [adviser] Al [Haymon] and [Golden Boy CEO] Richard [Schaefer] come up with. If it was up to me, that would be the two guys we would be looking at," Cunningham told BoxingScene.com.

Judah was 0-2 in 2013, with decision losses to Danny Garcia and Paulie Malignaggi.

Alexander should fight Collazo Karass or Guerrero

Man, Alexander just lost to Porter. Alexander isn't so big that they're going to give him a soft comeback fight like Zab. And, I have a feeling Berto wouldn't be keen on this fight, as he has nothing to gain.…

[QUOTE=Realizniguhnit;14271780]I see what you're saying but being that it's a crossroads fight I think it will be a little more entertaining than you anticipate. Both need this fight, and taking into consideration the way Judah performed in his last fight…
