I know we've been reading a bunch rah rah crap about the Khan fight (which I still think wont happen), but my biggest question is, when will Devon impress again? I haven't seen a good performance from him since the Urango fight in 2010. I mean, the Maidana fight was impressive, but Maidana was still a plodder and he looked fat in that fight.

Lately, he's just found ways to make fights boring, and that Kell Brook accident-prone nonsense just killed his buzz. I'm wondering when he'll show us something at WW, or will he just fizzle out? Mind you, I used to be a huge Alexander fan, but wth is up with him nowadays???

Devon is the victim of zombie thinking, he is the same age as Crawford and Gary Russell and he has fought Bradley, Maidana, Lucas, Urango, Koetlink, Bailey and Witter and now Khan at 26 only the most low information fans think Devon isn't improving. Look at how he fought Purdy, Devon realized Purdy couldn't hurt him so he let go, Devon would KO Khan.

listen....i know how hard it is to get to devon's level. he's a former world champ. he's still a top contender. no one is taking any of that away from him. judging from his string of opponents....i don't believe he's getting better. i think he's hit his plateau. at 147....his style isn't going to get him far and his punching isn't exactly anything to write home about. khan may be past his best....but offensively speaking, he's going to give devon a lot to be concerned about in comparison to lee purdy. i wouldn't favor devon over too many of the top guys at 147.

Totally disagree, Devon makes easy work of anyone but the p4p guys, nothing about Devon would suggest he has fallen off. Devon is absolutely huge he rehryated to 161 in his last fight. It's what happens when you fight world class opponents, people take you for granted.
