DEVON ALEXANDER:

The Media Center at MGM Grand in Las Vegas was buzzing today as some of boxing's brightest stars took to the stage and addressed the media ahead of their respective bouts on the "Royal Battle: Amir Khan vs. Devon Alexander" fight card taking place this Saturday, Dec. 13 live on SHOWTIME from the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Here is what former welterweight champion Devon Alexander had to say at today's press conference.

DEVON ALEXANDER, Former Two-Division World Champion

"I am ready to go 15 rounds if we had to. This is a tough test and I'm ready.

"I've dreamt of this my whole life. Headlining in Las Vegas is a dream come true and I plan on taking full advantage of this.

"I'm as prepared mentally and physically as I've ever been for a fight. If you look at my resume, I've fought top guys throughout my career. Khan is a good fighter and this is going to be a great fight.

"I'm going to stand and fight. This isn't going to be a track meet. At least not for me.

"I know I've got a lot of fans back home pulling for me and I've got some fans in the UK too that will be rooting for me on Saturday night too."
