Devon's only had 3 fights since than and has won all easily.

Devon gets the most unfair rap I've ever seen, I've laid out his resume on here many times, it's only behind the Floyds, Mannys and Wards of the world and he is so young. Perception often becomes reality and people are lazy on Devon, they don't look at his age and resume and they don't take into account he was drained at 140 and looks like 147 is his natural weightclass. If you try to look good against Bailey, Maidana and Lucas you get knocked out. This is a guy who also tried to fight Ruslan, Khan and Kell twice, hard not to be a fan.
The guy who wrote the article sounds basic, he said Kilmonov wasn't aggressive enough, I got to take into account Devon is fighting world class guys and Crawford is fighting ESPN guys.
If devon was drained its no fault but his own if he stayed down. He got home cooking against Lucas and barely squeaked by kotelnik. Bradley completely mind fucked him, he looked lost and discouraged and HE caused most of the headbutts that gave him a way out.
At 140 before those two fights he would actually step in and sit on his punches, afterwards he just pitty pats and clinches because he does not want to get tagged again like he did against Lucas and Bradley (mind you Bradley has negative calcium in his fists). And the thing is, the dude is a good boxer! But he fights scared now. A guy like khan could have either made him look like shit or gave him a prime performance. Porter isn't hard to find and he is inexperienced, its probably gonna be a clinchfest
