Former two division champion Devon Alexander is only a few days away from his scheduled bout with fellow former champion Andre Berto.
The contest takes place this Saturday night at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York.
A victory over Berto would catapult Alexander to a much higher position in the rankings and put him on pace to a potential world title shot in the coming future.
Alexander views the contest as a do or die fight - so he's planning to put forth a very impressive performance.
He would like to end Berto with a stoppage win, but he's ready to punish him all night if necessary.
"I’ll go in with a strategic game plan, and once he feels the power, if he’s able to withstand that, then we’re gonna beat him up all night. Once we start to see a weakness in the chin, and the weakness in his legs, then we’re gonna go in for the kill. We’re going to be really aggressive and see how he takes the punishment," Alexander said to Premier Boxing Champions.
Beyond Berto, Alexander is willing to fight anyone in the weight class - including IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence.
Alexander feels that he possesses the necessary tools to beat Spence.
"Errol Spence can definitely fight and has the power and skills, but anybody with legs and who is ready to box all night can beat him. So I’ll come up with a tremendous game plan for him. I'm sure they all believe they see flaws in me," Alexander said.
Alexander hopes that a win over Berto will influence one of the bigger names to face him.
After the way that I’m planning on beating Berto, they won’t be able to deny me. I’m feeling rejuvenated, motivated and ready to turn in a peak performance. I’m feeling like the guy who beat Marco Maidana a few year ago, so I don’t care who I fight, just line them up," Alexander said.
