Alexander should win a wide decision against Kotelnik without much trouble. I'm actually more interested in the co-feature, Tavoris Cloud versus Glen Johnson. This will be a much more entertaining fight and possibly a FOTY candidate. I know Johnson is old, and Cloud is younger and basically has the same style as Johnson, but I don't think Johnson is done to the point Cloud smashes him. I think it will be a competitive fight with Cloud winning a close decision. There should be a lot action, and Cloud will have to work for this one.

I think Alexander has that killer instinct that will not allow Kotelnik to see the final bell in a high profile bout like tonight's. Devon is out to make a statement.

Darn, had to leave to come to work half way through the Alexander/Kotelnik fight. Funny, that both fights were mirror images of each other.

So did anyone else see Alexander get his ass whooped tonight??

I thought Kotelnik won 7-5...

Maybe now, people will realize that Bradley is smarter, more well rounded, just flat out BETTER than him...I'm sure Kellerman does at least...lol

Wouldn't say WHOOPED but you look at who was landing the head snapping blows and that was Kotelnik. Lederman was WAY off, I guess he likes activity over real punches. Alexander does have faster hands than Bradley and he has a good jab that was inefficient against Kotelnik's high guard but may land with more accuracy against Mini Holyfield.

Tavoris Cloud gets some leverage on his shots but the guy needs to pick up the activity level.

Bradley/AlexAnder will be interesting to say the least. Alexander looked like he was lost at times tonight. Many of his flashy jabs were NOT landing. Agreed, Timmy is a much different fighter from Kotelnik though. Timmy moves his head better than Kotelnik. However he doesnt have the high guard mastered. Also can Timmy hurt Alexander? Remains to be seen. i think the fight lost some luster after the lackluster performance that Alexander put on. I see Timmy roughing him up and smothering Alexanders punches on his way to an ugly rough decision.

I had Cloud over Johnson 115-113. The old man did very well, but there were just a couple instances where he lost a couple of rounds with Cloud doing just a little more in critical moments. Nice little war.

Easy 118-110 for Alexander over Kotelnik. Kot tried, but Alexander was just quicker and speedier in most of the exchanges. Can't see Devon beating Bradley, although I think it would still be a war. I disagree with our CEO BIG TIME on this fight. LOL!

The result was very fishy to me. 116-112? On all 3 cards? To Alexander? GTFOH! A draw would have been a GENEROUS outcome for Alexander.

Whatever your thoughts on the outcome, surely this makes Khan's clear and comprehensive beating of a younger Kotelnik all the more impressive, no?
