Also Sat Night: Timothy Bradley/Devon Alexander

Unread postby swerb » Thu Jan 27, 2011 9:08 am

Don't get much better than this one. Bradley 26-0, Alexander 21-0 ... both coming off 3-4 impressive wins over legit foes. Two likable, extremely well conditioned, outstanding fighters. A clash of the titans at 140, a division loaded with names like Khan, Maidana, and Ortiz. With Pac Man and Floyd just a weight class up.

Winner of this almost assuredly fights Khan or becomes Pacquiao's next foe after he takes Grampa Mosely apart at the seams.

Such a hard fight to handicap. Just got a gut feeling Alexander finds a way to pull this out.

This is a true superfight.
These guys don't get as much respect as they should.
It's a damn shame the fight is in the Superdome (which I didn't know was still standing) and I have talked to many people who have said ticket sales have been horrible.

Alexander didn't look all that great his last time out.
Bradley is a beast and my 2nd favorite fighter in the game right now so it's hard for me not to pick him. It'll be a classic. I'm ready for it.

Bradley. Unanimous decision or late stoppage.
Desert Storm is coming.

The preparation these two are going through for this fight is insane. Alexander has spent the last 4 months in seclusion ... didn't even see his family for Christmas. Bradley actually practices what it would be like to get knocked down by spinning himself till he falls down and trying to get up to a count (smart).

PONTIAC, Mich. – Timothy Bradley will sport the throwback look on Saturday when he climbs into the ring at the Silverdome to face Devon Alexander on HBO for the World Boxing Council-World Boxing Organization super lightweight titles.

Bradley will wear shorts that go only to the mid-thigh and socks that reach his knees as a tribute to fighters of the 1980s that he idolized such as Marvelous Marvin Hagler, Sugar Ray Leonard, Thomas Hearns and Roberto Duran.

Immediate family or like extended, mother-in-law family with cousins you've heard of and seen once?

Because I'd be down with being dude's sparring partner if it's the second thing.

Seriously, it sounds like a good night for fights between Strikeforce and this one though I ddn't see mention of an under card on the HBO fight.
