Cunningham Dares Other Welters To Face R. Bailey

by Ryan Burton

On Saturday night Devon Alexander became a two division champion with a dominate win over Randall Bailey. The fight opened up Showtime's quadruple header at the newly opened Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.

While Alexander was dominant, the fight wasn't very exciting.  Bailey rarely opened up and didn't let his hands go very often. In fact, the CompuBox numbers revealed that Bailey only averaged 17 thrown punches per round.

Alexander's trainer and manger Kevin Cunningham told Boxingscene that Bailey isn't the type of fighter that is easy to look good against but he is proud of his fighter for pulling out the victory.

"Devon is now a 3-time world champion.  Nobody looks good against Bailey but Devon did what he had to do. Styles makes fights," Cunningham stated.

Bailey, who hails from Florida, is known for his devastating power in his right hand.  Even though he didn't throw very many punches, Bailey did manage to land a few big shots.  Despite the fact that he was dominated, Cunningham doesn't think that many contenders will be eager to step in the ring with Bailey.

"Randall hit Devon in the chest with a right hand and it sounded like he hit him with a bat. I dare any of the top welterweights to fight Bailey," Cunningham told BoxingScene.

Cunningham I dare you make Devon a more skillful and fundamentally sound fighter...

Devon is garbage. Is and always will be vastly overrated. I mean let's be realistic, the only real significant victory he has had was his KO of Urango, what else? He lost (and quit) to Bradley, he lost in reality…
