Not nearly enough hate being banded about for that shameful show of bottlecrash from Alexander. He flat out quit! Fuckin little bitch. You seen on the replay the way he got butted, then a slight delay, quick look, then wailing like a little bitch.

Fuckin disgusted by the lack of hate, the lack of criticism even, for Alexander. He wanted out cos he thought he was up on the cards so he figured, "shit, this is slipping away from me.....I know, I'll steal it by saying I can't carry on cos I can't see from an accidental butt!" The cunt didn't blink his fuckin eye once the decision was announced, he didn't seem like he couldn't see once he lost the decision. He gave 20 odd excuses in the post fight interview but yet added "no excuses". What we got here, a competition between Alexander and Dirrell for whose the better actor?

I was very disappointed in the way this fight ended. Unlike most I thought this was a fairly good fight and very tactical. I think they were showing to much respect and caution at times and that made for what looked like a boring fight. But I do give Tim Bradley major props as he was the one dictating the action. I also thought Bradley could have done more. Bradley is a very determined fighter and its hard to break that mans will. Even though Alexander had some good moments boxing and kept the fight close in some ways, he just wasn't ready for a man that's truly determined. When the going started to get tough, I feel Alexander welcomed a way out. I mean yea he got headbutted but he could have continued. This is the biggest fight and turning point in Devons career and he can't let it end that way. True champions dont do that. They do what they have to do to keep going. He could have asked for more time for the stinging to go away if he wanted to continue. Arent fighters allowed a 5 minute recovery during a foul? I kind of felt he asked for the easy way out, and in the boxing world thats a way to not make fans. But all props to Tim Bradley, he's a true warrior and dedicated at what he does. The man is a rock. I'll always be a fan of his.

I also enjoyed the fight. I think most people were disappointed because they expected the top guys in the division to go in there and create fireworks. The reality is that Alexander and Bradley are just too athletic and smart to get into a brawl.

I thought Alexander was competitive in every round but it was Bradley who edged them out by landing the "Oooh" inducing punches. Alexander was landing some nice right hooks on the inside whenever they exchanged and also landed some nice straight lefts to the body and head. The problem was that they weren't very hard.

Bradley is without a doubt the #1 Jr Welter having beaten Witter (was on a hot streak), Edner Cherry (tough dude), Holt, Campbell, Peterson and now Alexander.

Yes, Khan is taller and has better offense than Alexander, but he's not as slick as Alexander and that might give Bradley the edge. Either way, Holyfield Jr is going to have a tough time getting inside, but I think he has the superior ring IQ to make Khan have to worry about the incoming offense, not the other way around.

i have to agree... i mean just cuzz a fight doesnt have fireworks and multiple knockdowns dont make it not a good fight... i think a lot of people expected the fireworks that this fight had a 50-50 chance of having but i think they both fought pretty smart and didnt allow themselves to over commit etc... and then again maybe im in the minority that can appreciate a tactical fight still... i love watching technical boxers do their thing... now with that being said neither one of these two are technical boxers in the classic sense of the term but bradley did what he had to do with the assets he has... more power to him...
