"Team Aelxander is targeting Floyd or Canelo after the destruction of Bailey," stated world-class trainer Kevin Cunningham, who is currently in the final weeks of training camp with top welterweight contender Devon Alexander as they prepare for the upcoming September 8th title challenge against current IBF welterweight champion Randall Baiely. Although Cunningham insists that they're not looking past the hard-hitting Bailey, he also realizes that the ultimate goal is an opportunity with the big names in and around the welterweight division.
Alexander, a former unifed jr. welterweight champion, will become a two-division world champion with a victory over Bailey, but he's eyeing much bigger achievements after that. "Unify with Money or move up and challenge Canelo. It's time to stop playing," Cunningham added. With roughly four weeks left to go before the bout, both camps are still wondering where the bout will take place, as a venue has yet to be determined after it was forced to move from the FedEx Form in Memphis, Tennessee. Nonetheless, the bout is still moving forward on the original September 8 date.
