I've made my mind up for this one. Tim Bradley wins a clear and pretty wide unanimous decision. Alexander is unable to adapt in a fight and he basically boxes exactly the same way from start to finish. He also telegraphs his punches in the way he sounds like an orgasmic lesbian prior to throwing every shot. His poor performance against Kotelnik is more worrying when you consider he failed to work out the very basics...I mean Kotelnik, with his high guard and stiff jab gave Alexander all the problems he could handle and Devon didn't know how to adjust.

Alexander will be countered regularly by Bradleys left hook because he throws that southpaw jab from too far back and Tim will also land his swooping overhand right. Don't get me wrong, this is a good fight and Tim might climb off the floor if he gets caught but he's proven he can do that, he has an excellent will-to-win attitude and he knows how to adapt.

Tim Bradley 117-110 or something like that.


I'm standing by this all the way and I'm looking forward to it big time.

I'm on the fence on this one......

I don't know if Bradley's gonna try to steamroll him like he did Campbell (ref stoppage earlier than expected) or wear his ass out for the full 12...

Bradley is comin' off more focused/intense than ever...which makes me think Alexander will have to stop him to get the win...

Bradley always comes into the ring with an excellent game plan. He is always focused and intense, and his wins have been very impressive. This fight isn't a hard fight to pick for me. I think Bradley wins this one convincingly, no closer than 8-4.

Man I'm excited for this fight. Of course, I'm excited for every fight. I think Alexander is going to dominate Bradley. Tim Bradley, in my opinion, is one of the most overrated fighters in the sport right now. He's accomplished a lot, and I'm not calling him a bad fighter, but I just don't see him being in the top echelon of the sport. He's wild at times, comes in wreckless, and is there to be countered. Alexander is a pretty good counter puncher, and he's going to stun Bradley badly with those uppercuts. Bradley will be tentative to come in, and that's really his plan in there. Alexander, I believe, is taller than him. I think Alexander stops him in 7.

I can't help but feel the same thing. I love his tenacity, but he doesn't have the punch to dominate a top fighter like Alexander.

I've been thinking that the only way Alexander can win is by ko, but the more I think about it I think that if Alexander could just establish his jab he could actually win a rough but semi-easy fight in the 8-4 range.

I'm really surprised at how excited I am for this one.
