Maidana is a gatekeeper and tonight he gave up the key to Alexander.

Last time I saw more clinching I was at a wrestling tournament. There was a lot of bro hugging in there, as far as Alexander goes yea he looked good but he's the same guy. Same style, same everything the only thing that changed was that he shadowed his defensive flaws by clinching. I wasnt impressed with either in their debut at 147
Cheesey1
I like what Alexander said about still learning. Good stuff.
Cshel86
Damn! One question for Maidana? Thats it? Fuck outta here with that man...
iKeNjiro
wow I did not like Alexander before this fight
but I like him now....great showing tonight, great showing

But I hate all that noise he (Alexander) makes when he punches sometimes lol

But his attitude was great, great interview
I like Alexander now

great win he beat Maidana easily

Yup my thoughts exactly, the clinching changed everything.

30-27 broner at time of stoppage

99-91 alexander

cheers to all that have put in their scores
ROME
Anyone else notice Alexander's 2 headbutt attempts in the 8th round? It appeared as the though the 2nd one actually connected, as Maidana seemed to complain about it. He even followed it up with a blatant forearm to the throat lol
I suppose he just got really carried away once he felt like he had Maidana hurt and was trying to get him out of there by any means...

So impressed with Broner tonight. He resembles Floyd in a lot of ways, and at super featherweight, seems to have slightly more power, although he's somewhat less accurate with his punches. Regardless, I hope he keeps improving, especially since Ponce De Leon made him look rather out of sorts. Needs to keep developing that defense and adding to his arsenal. The sky appears to be the limit though. I can see him being an elite fighter all the way up to light welterweight.

Great wins for Broner and Alexander. Beautiful dominating performance. I had it 8-2 for Devon. Great judges! See, you don't need open scoring shit, WBC, you need and appoint the best judges for important fights.

Remember that Maidana being overrated thread?


Yup, I remember it; I started it. And my call on that sounds about right considering the guy got shut out or at best one 1 round against Alexander, a guy many thought would get broken down.

The Original MrFactor
Broner looked huge for 130. Robert Guerrero is just 5 pounds north of Broner. make it happen!! Guerrero wants a fight against a known guy. Broner needs to step up. Why not match the two of them? I think it makes for a good fight. Broner looked like a big kid fighting a little kid for his candy last night. Wasnt a good fight and wasnt a good matchup. I Can most certainly see the comparisons between a young Mayweather and Broner. Very similar guys in terms of style and demeanor.

The other fight or should I say wrestling match was exciting in very limited spurts. Alexander needs to learn to jab and double up with the right instead of clinch. It was a very good victory for Alexander. He seems much better suited for 147. He's going to be a smallish guy at the weight, but he'll be tough. At 140, he seemed to lose energy down the stretch. Hence the 10 rounders they've had him in lately. That told me that there was a concern. His next match will be 12 rounds for sure. Maidana may be better suited for 140. He looked flabby and disinterested. He lost all confidence after the 1st or 2nd clinch in the fight. Smoger did a lousy job of controlling the clinches. I'm sure that will be addressed by whoever Devon Alexander fights next.

Broner looked great against decent opposition. Solid defense and controlled aggression on offense. His trash talkin is becoming annoying. Not because I hate trash talking (I actually like it. It's exciting when a guy can talk junk and back it up). Broner's just seemed incredibly scripted though. It was really corny in my opinion. He clearly seems to try to bite Mayweather. Guys Floyd, Roy, Ali etc, the trash seemed to roll off their tongue. It was like he was thinking of his lines when Max was interviewing him. N that rap entrance was lame (except for the Spanish guy tryna hit him like this was WWE lol). I know this has nothing to do with the fight but really, Eloy was overwhelmed. We all saw that. Also, that lil merengue he did with Perez in the ring was hilarious

Alexander wasn't as impressive to me as other ppl thought he was. I give him tons of credit. I thought Maidana was going to win. Alexander fought a solid fight. His footwork, stepping around after his punch, was brilliant. However, I thought Maidana's uncharacteristically dull effort made him look more dominant than he was. The thing that turned me off from Alexander to begin with is exactly what Kevin Cunningham was yelling at him all night. He's WAY too wound up when he fights. It's like his nerves take over when he starts getting pressured. If you noticed, he came out and wasn't grunting (annoying). then Maidana had a decent second round n out came the grunt. Not taking away from his performance, but he's incredibly too jittery. When Cunningham kept saying, this is easy...just relax, I got exactly what he was saying.

Broner is a funny cat. His dad looks like a giant green M&M. Eloy had a good story I wish him the best, he was outclassed. Broner needs to move up in weight. I can see him being a Jr Welter Weight in a few years. I find him more comical than the villian roll. I know he wants to be like Mayweather but he does not play the bad guy well. His personality does not project it. The hands on the throat during the weigh ins... Be original Broner, we already have one Mayweather. I think this kid has a nice future, I would like to see him tighten up on his defense but other than that, he can be a good one.


Alexander looked good at 147. I am very happy he bounced back, he is hard worker and a good guy. I can not get the image out of my head with him being the boxer from Harlem Nights. Maidana had a clear off night. He did not seem like his usual self. I really would like Ortiz to fight him again, after Berto of course.

Roy Jones please retire, your speech is starting to drawl.
Cshel86
Okay guys...I gave Alexander an extremely hard time last night, which was somewhat unnecessary. Overall, he performed great, and as it was mentioned on HBO, he dominated Maidana like no one else has.

My only concern is, how he fairs against these other guys at WW. I see him having a field day with Khan, and a better fight with Bradley, since he did nothing more than stare at him most of the fight.

Maidana has a rather unique case, based on the outcome of Saturday night. He has 3 big rematches with Khan, Ortiz, and Morales. He even has Guerrero and Matthysse to give him good fights at 140.

I could see a potential Alexander/Peterson match at 147, being the fact that Lamont could possibly move up to WW after the Khan rematch. Point is, Devon has several options, but Im hoping that he brings that same fire that showed this weekend, in the ring with him against better opposition whose fight plan isn't limited to just hoping to stalk you and deliver a nightmare of an ass-kicking.

I think a guy like ortiz would put a hurting on Alexander. I wouldn't wish Alexander vs Khan on my worst enemy, two guys grunting slap punching and running and clinching as soon as they feel a fly land on em lol.

A match that would be interesting to me would be berto vs Alexander

Looks like you were right... as i watched the fight, I thought either Alexander just put on a tremendous performance, or Maidana don't really have it. Lets all be honest, we were all way off. Who would of thought Devon would of pulled this off? I think its both to be quite right. Alexander just did a hell of a job, while Maidana put on a sub-par performance. Or to be more simple, Devon carried the weight at welterweight much better than Maidana did. Sounds reasonable to me.

100% agreed with both parts.

I'm thinking Ortiz isnt going to be a WW for much longer. The guy is big enough to move up to 154. He was pretty big for the Mayweather fight. Ortiz reminds me of Fernando Vargas for some reason. I see Alexander as a tougher grittier Zab Judah at 147. Alexander will need to fight a bonafide guy at 147, in a 12 rounder to get respect at the weight. I'd even take JMM against Alexander to see what the kid is really made of.
