Devon Alexander-Tim Bradley Training Camp Notes

Devon Alexander ‘The Great’ Training Camp Notes

Part 1

Camp Location:  I am training in Las Vegas for this fight.  While I have trained here before when I fought out of the Cory Spinks camp, for my last two fights my promoter, Don King, allowed me to live in the home where Mike Tyson lived when he trained in Vegas.  I love it.  It gives me inspiration to know I’m sleeping in the same bed “Iron” Mike slept in when he trained here.

Training Regimen:  My trainer, Kevin Cunningham, took me up to the mountains outside Las Vegas last year to a little ski resort at the top of Mt. Charleston to run.  I call it ‘The Monster’ and its one of my biggest challenges while training.  I have to face and conquer it three times a week, and with snow on the ground now, it has become much tougher.

Every day, we go out for a six-mile run in the morning, and then head to the gym in the afternoon.  My workouts include shadow boxing, mitt work, heavy bag, speed bag, sparring and jumping rope.  I average 30 rounds per day in the gym, Monday through Saturday.  And on the seventh day, I rest.

Diet:  Basically as far as meat, I only eat salmon, tilapia, turkey breast and chicken breast.  The rest of it is fruits and vegetables.  It’s just fuel for me.  I want to eat what will make me perform best.

Personal sacrifice:  Eating light is not my only sacrifice during this training camp.  Due to this fight being in January, I’ve had to give up the holidays with my friends and family back in St. Louis, which is hard.  My kids will wake up on Christmas day without dad being there. I was in the gym on Christmas.  Come January 29, that’s something else that Tim Bradley is going to have to pay for.  I think about that every day.

Timothy ‘Desert Storm’ Bradley Training Camp Notes

Part 1

Camp Location:  I am back in Indio, Calif., where all of my camps have taken place. I have never found the need to go anywhere else as my family is not a distraction and does not get in the way of how my camp goes. My family is what keeps me strong.  If I had to go somewhere else, I would not be able to focus the way I do because I would be worrying about them.

Training regiment:  My training is Monday through Saturday and consists of running 45 minutes daily, sparring a few times during the week, strength training twice a week, and most of all doing my best to execute the plan.

Diet: My diet consists of grains, vegetables, and my protein sources come from tofu, tempeh, beans and nuts.  Turning vegetarian for every training camp is nothing new for me.  In fact, it is something that has worked for me for the past two years.  Other fighters are even trying this now, so this just puts me ahead of the game.

Personal Sacrifice: This year did not feel much like Christmas because I am so focused for January 29th.  I don’t really consider it a personal sacrifice because this is my job. I know what I have ahead of me.  But my personality was not in the Christmas spirit like every other year and know that I had to set mind up for this.  But even though this was the first Christmas I had to work, the real gift will be coming on Jan. 29th.

WBC super lightweight champion Alexander (21-0, 13 KOs), of St. Louis, and WBO junior welterweight champion Bradley (26-0, 11 KOs), of Palm Springs, collide in “The Super Fight,” Saturday, January 29, at the Silverdome in Pontiac, Mich.  Their world title unification will be televised live on HBO World Championship Boxing, beginning at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT.
