QUOTE (Mean Mister Mustard @ Jan 31 2011, 02:59 PM) *
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.


MMM, I can't speak for everyone else, but I certainly didn't watch this fight with the expectations that this would create fire works. I thought it would be tactical, but to me, Alexander didn't try hard enough, he waited around too much for the perfect shot. Flicking his jab out at gloves with nothing behind them. Alexander to me looked like a deer in headlights. Bradley was good, Alexander was extremely disappointing, and for me it wasn't becase he lost big or I thought he lost big, to me it was mainly because it looked like he never even put himself in a position to win the fight or give him a chance. He looked totally lost in there.

fitz... i thought bradley all but had him figured out by the end of the 3rd round... i remember thinking some where in the 4th or 5th round that if devon didnt have another plan of attack this fight was all but over... devon didnt have another plan and though he made some of those rounds close he was cooked... a few thing s i thought devon could have done more and really one in particular was his activity rate... he seemed baffled at times by bradley and i think had he just kicked up his activity a good 10 to 15 more punches per round he could have really opened up his chances... now with that being said i loved bradleys body punching... he went to the body early and he beat that body up often through out he fight... headbutts aside that i dont think where intentional he did what he had to do to get the job done... it appeared devon was on his way to getting beat up pretty good the last couple of rounds had he not wiggled his way out of the fight... seems to me he should have taken 5 and then quit... fighting for the unified title... seems like he should have found a way to get back at it... one thing i noticed too was the cut while deep wasnt bleeding and the eye that was butted last wasnt cut... lol... i hope devon gets knocked out in his next fight...
