Devon Alexander was very interested in last month's results of the FOX pay-per-view card headlined by Keith Thurman taking on Mario Barrios. Thurman went on to win a dominant unanimous decision at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.
On the pay-per-view undercard, Lucas Santamaria (13-2) scored his second upset in a row when he defeated Abel Ramos via unanimous decision to capture the WBC Continental Americas title. In his previous ring appearance, he defeated Alexander, who is a former two-division champion. In 2020 he defeated the then 22-1 Mykal Fox.
Alexander suffered a right biceps injury in the first round of the bout versus Santamaria. The injury has since healed and he is ready to return to action.
“Santamaria pulled off the upset. Congrats to him. I wish I wouldn’t have hurt my bicep in the fight but that’s part of the fight game, said Alexander.
As for who he wants to face next, the St. Louis native would like to square off against former multi-division champion Robert Guerrero in an all southpaw showdown.
The California native was last in action in August on the Manny Pacquiao-Yordenis Ugas undercard. He defeated Victor Ortiz via unanimous decision. He has now won four bouts in a row since retiring in 207 after suffering his third consecutive loss against Omar Figueroa Jr.
“I like Guerrero. He has done a lot for the sport. But me and my coach Stafford would love to get in there with him and see who go on and who hangs them up,” Alexander told BoxingScene.com.
