"If Bailey really believes he's going to KO Devon, it shouldn't matter where the fight takes place. If this clown had a fan base, we would come to Miami, but since he can't draw flies to shit, the promoters have to take this fight where they can sell it," stated Devon Alexander's world-class trainer, Kevin Cunningham, who responded to recent comments made by newly-crowned IBF welterweight champion Randall Bailey regarding a potential showdown later this year. Although both sides have agreed in principle to a September 8th bout, a venue has yet to be determined, and Bailey is now expressing some reservation about facing Alexander in his hometown of St. Louis.
"Oh, we ain't going to the Lou. Why would I go to the Lou? Because after I knock him out, I couldn't even go out and party and celebrate. He's definitely the guy I want to fight, but I'm not fighting him in St. Louis," Bailey would tell FightHype's own Percy Crawford during a recent interview. After hearing about those comments, Cunningham warned that Bailey should be less concerned about the location and more concerned about the man he'll be defending his title against. "Bottom line is Devon will fight him on Mars if he has to. Come September 8th, Randall Bailey is getting his ass whooped anyway," Cunningham added.
Be sure to check back soon for much more from Cunningham, Alexander, and Bailey as this war of words continues to heat up.
