Alexander-Chaves Deal Reached For IBF Final Eliminator

By Carlos Boogs has been advised that a deal has been reached for a final IBF eliminator between welterweights Diego Chaves (23-2-1, 19KOs) and Devon Alexander (26-3, 14KOs). The two camps were able to avoid a purse bid, for a fight that will see the winner get a crack at current IBF champion Kell Brook.

Chaves has been inactive since a December twelve round split draw with former two-division world champion Timothy Bradley. The Argentine boxer had lost by disqualification to Brandon Rios a few months earlier. Rios is now the likely opponent for Brook on September 12th in London.

Alexander is in the same boat, with being inactive since last December. Alexander dropped a lopsided twelve round decision to Amir Khan, who may end up facing Floyd Mayweather Jr. on September 12th in Las Vegas. 

Ironically Chaves and Alexander were last in action on the same night, in different venues in the city of Las Vegas, as HBO and Showtime went head to head. 

Alexander-Chaves is looking likely for a date in September.  The venue and location is unknown at the moment.

[QUOTE=HanzGruber;15841166]Did I blame brook on this weak mando? Just don't try and hype it up it does nothing for him. Khan and[B] thurman made easy work [/B]out of both of them[/QUOTE] Ehhh.. That's not exactly what happened.

[QUOTE=Ray*;15841110]Khan style was just all wrong for Devon, he had to deal with too many combos, against Brook he doesn't have to worry about that. Brook is methodical and economical with his punches, brook beats him still doe IMHO.[/QUOTE] Yep…

Alexander has never been KO'd and I don't see that happening here, but Chavez should be favored in this fight. Alexander looked lost in his last fight against Kahn.
