"From what I'm hearing, the fight could be going to Memphis. I think Memphis is the perfect neutral site for this fight," stated world-class trainer Kevin Cunningham, who informed us that there's a strong possibility that the anticipated welterweight matchup between top contender Devon Alexander and IBF champion Randall Bailey could very well end up at the FedExForum in Memphis, Tennessee. The bout will be televised September 8th live on Showtime.
"You know Ben, most people come to Memphis for their delicious smoked ribs, but Randall Bailey's coming to Memphis to get broke ribs," Cunningham added, making it clear that Alexander will be looking to put on a knockout performance against the hard-hitting Bailey, who is coming off of a come-from-behind 11th round knockout victory over the previously undefeated Mike Jones this past June. Alexander last fought in February, dominating former jr. welterweight champion Marcos Maidana over the course of ten rounds, winning virtually every round on all three scorecards in the process.
