ALEXANDER VS MAIDANA IS ON IN THE LOU

A source close to the situation has informed FightHype.com that a deal has been reached and the fight between Devon Alexander and Marcos Maidana will indeed take place in Alexander's hometown of St. Louis. The date of the fight is looking like February 25th, but it could be moved up to February 18th pending the venue. The bout is set to be broadcast on HBO.

Both Alexander (22-1 13 KO's) and Maidana (31-2 28 KO's) will be making there first appearances at welterweight. Alexander, a southpaw, will have his speed and skill tested against the hard-hitting Argentine, Maidana.

A win for both fighters would put them right back in the mix for a potential fight with Floyd Mayweather or Manny Pacquiao. The potential is also there for the winner to take on the winner of the Andre Berto vs Victor Ortiz rematch. Stay tuned to FightHype as the official date and venue should be announced shortly.
