Alexander has GREAT handspeed.
Mean Mister Mustard
From what I've seen in other Alexander fights, he can go at this pace for 10 rounds, easy.
BigG
Alexander is a good boxer. He has a nice jab, good hand speed, and solid skills all around.

Round 7....Alexander chopping him down....Alexander just hurt Rodriguez...really starting to put it on him....Round 8...Rodriguez is down...showing heart.
Mean Mister Mustard
Imagine an Alexander-Peterson fight. Both guys yepling, it would sound like two chihuaha's battling it out.
BigG
Alexander stops him in round 9...impressive stuff....
D-MARV
I wasn't all that impressed by Devon... Good fighter, Great Speed, but I'm not sold on him.

Spinks is really starting to come on i think its more Latimore's inexperience fighting in the later rounds rather than anything Spinks is doing

Not too bad a fight, the first 6 rounds were pretty competitive, after that both guys were very tired and the fight got a little sloppy with both guys hanging on and clinching from exhaustation. latimore was looking like he was on empty from rounds 6 on, even though I thought he dug deep and won the 10th and 11th on power shots alone, the 12 he looked completely out of gas and thought Spinks won the 12th to make it 7-5(114-113) Spinks. 12th was the critical round for me and Spinks landed the only meaningful shots in the round, latimore was just hanging on trying to stay on his feet and landed virtually nothing. Spinks' experience combined with Latimore's inexperience was the difference in the fight. Latimore fought about as good as he could have(for being dead tired) with a a guy like Spinks who while past his best, has tons of experience against world class opposition. Latimore shouldn't hang his head too low, he needs to get right back in the guy and stay busy, I think he can definitely learn from this loss/fight.
King Eugene
I didn't get to see the fight cause I'm at work.

Did Spinks cry again?
KYLE THEEE SPINKS FAN
That was an awesome fight. I had the fight 115-112 for Spinks, giving him rounds 3,4,6,7,8,9,11, and 12. He made the adjusments neccesary after the first two rounds to win this fight. Tonight was not a night for him to use all that movement because a guy with the style of Lattimore would have chopped him down. He tried using the ring in those first two rounds, but Lattimore kept catching him pulling out with his hands down. That's what put him down in the first round. He fought very well on the inside, and looked like his slick self in the middle of that fight. I still think he gives EVERY jr. middle out there trouble, even though I'll admit he seemed a bit faded tonight. However, he's been off for over a year and I'm sure he had some ring rust. King better keep him active. I'm really happy he's on top again, he's been one of the most underrated boxers out there. He's my favorite fighter, and I hope to see him in there with the best.

Hey,

No one expected this fight to be as good as it was! But it was a very good fight. I had it 6-6 in rounds, but 114-113 for Latimore off the first round kd. Many rounds were very close, and could have went either way. Good scoring. Who won was largely based on interpretation of many hard to score rounds.

I had Spinks slightly winning, great rebound for him considering how he looked early in the fight. I thought it was an enjoyable fight to watch. Lattimore became a little to predictable in there and Spinks kind of figured him out, he missed alot of big head shots over and over when he could have shifted his focus on the body more. Also, Spinks sure lacks some pop in his punches.

good fight for spinks may have got a couple of more fans actually lol

even though he fought more and ran less I dont see this cory being as successful than the boxer cory in the ring! it will help him with the fans yea but better opposition at 154 would prob beat this spinks. think latimore lost this due to experience

side note think someone mentioned spinks being shot he's not AS elusive as he once was as no fighter is as they age but I think he just got off to a slow start which he's been known to do

think we see spinks vs williams next lol

I thought it should of been 115-112 all the way around for Spinks..Spinks showed us something we've never seen from him..It is not the best thing for him to do but it was entertaining..There's nothing wrong with being knocked down,it's if you get up that counts and even more so how you come back from it..Spinks showed the heart of a champ in that fight..He dug down deep..
D-MARV
Spinks did not have any legs last night. I hope he was just rusty and not completely shot. He does not have the chin to trade like he did last night. If he fights any of the top 5 guys then he'll be knocked out.

Yeah,his legs were gone..Rust was a problem too I think..He started off really bad than really started to get a groove going..

If he traded with Zab as much as he did last night,he would of been put away a lot faster in the second fight and would have lost the first one too..Shit,Paul Williams is hanging around at jr. middle and if Spinks tried that shit with him,we'd see a very early KO..

Like I said,it was an entertaining fight but he needs to go back to his old ways..Chris Byrd got KO'd real bad by W. Klitchko for trying to be more crowd pleasing..I prefer the use of their skill over their crowd pleasing ways..
