Alexander: I Absolutley Beat Victor Ortiz - I Gave Him Three Rounds

Devon Alexander (27-4-1, 14 KOs) was shaking his head when the decision was read in his match with fellow former world champion Victor Ortiz (32-6-3, 25 KOs).

They fought to majority draw in the exciting main event of Premier Boxing Champions on FOX and FOX Deportes Saturday night from Don Haskins Center on the UTEP campus in El Paso, Texas.

After 12 rounds, the judges scored the bout 115-113 for Ortiz and 114-114 twice, resulting in the majority draw

Alexander was confident that he had done enough over the 12 rounds to earn the decision.

"I absolutely thought I won the fight," said Alexander. "The last few rounds I probably gave him, but I thought I out landed him in the 12th. I thought I did enough to win. I gave him three rounds."
The fight turned out to be a back-and-forth affair, with Alexander dominating much of the early action. Alexander frequently caught Ortiz charging in with right hands and combinations. The attacks opened up swelling in Victor's left eye beginning in round three.
"My game plan was to be smart," said Alexander. "Victor always has problems with people that are faster and have more ring IQ. I wanted to put him in the state of mind that he can't win."
Alexander won five of the first six rounds on two judges' scorecards and all six on the other's. Ortiz began to have more success in the second half as Alexander's output slowed slightly and Ortiz remained persistent charging forward. This effort allowed him to win five of the final six rounds on two judges' cards and all six of the final frames on the third judge's card.

After the bout, Alexander said he was certainly open for the possibility of a rematch.

"I would love a rematch," said Alexander. "That's up to my team to see what's next, but I'll fight anybody. I'm a real fighter."

[QUOTE=hilltophustla4;18500411]Only those who search for a reason to obscure facts. Facts are facts[/QUOTE] Maybe so, but in the real world, there’s such a thing as losing credibility.
