Comments Thread For: Alexander vs. Brook Heading To Nokia in Los Angeles
BoxingScene.com has been informed that the IBF welterweight title clash between champion Devon Alexander and mandatory challenger Kell Brook is headed to the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, Calif. The fight takes place on January 19th and will be televised by Showtime.
Los Angeles and Las Vegas were both considered as possible locations for the fight. Alexander's team didn't want to go to the Brit's backyard while Brook wouldn't agree to fight in Alexander's hometown of St. Louis, MO. which lead to the fight ending up in a neutral location.

BAD LOCATION...VERY BAD!
Two Dudes they are not even from Los Angeles and neither of them are Mexican...I know people don't want to fight Devon in St. Louis but at least he can draw nice size crowd in St Louis...the attendance is going to SUCK in Los Angeles

Nokia theater is tiny, shouldn't be too hard to fill. Although, none of these fighters are really draws in LA. They should look for a decent mexican fighter to put in with Matthysse.

Brook is very popular and a big draw in the U.K and you know how passionate U.K fans are, they will fly out to support him, no doubt.
It'll do just fine with Lucas on the undercard.
Brook fans are more casual fans IMO so it'll be great that they get to see Lucas, they will love him!

Great. I spend years living in California & a few months after I move back to Florida both Khan & Brook fight in LA.

Wait so Matthysse no longer on the Garcia-Judah undercard? Can't say Im surprised. And here I was being fooled that GBP had interest in making Garcia-Matthysse. So silly...
