Looking Back at Bradley vs Alexander...What went wrong?
You always hear fans complaining about the best fighters not fighting each other and trying to protect their undefeated records.
Here, we had a rare occasion where the top 2 fighters at 140, both young, prime undefeated fighters were facing off. This was the first unification bout between 2 undefeated Americans in 24 years. Unfortunately, the fight generated little interest and the event flopped and seems to be forgotten years later. What went wrong?
Was the location of Pontiac, Michigan a mistake?
Was the fight made too early in their careers where there fanbases were small?
Promotion? Poor style matchup?
Or some combination off all of the above?

I think they both lack real personality outside, or inside the ring. Also Alexanders loss to Kotelnyk didn't help as this fight made him look like hype job. It was great fight for hard-core fights, but not something that could excite general public.

The location was definitely a mistake. Poorly promoted in my opinion. And the conclusion of the fight didn't help.

Alexander is just a tremendously negative fighter and he's not very skilled either.
Not a good combination.
