Devon Alexander says he's 'way better' than Kell Brook

IBF welterweight champion Devon Alexander doesn't seem particularly worried by the upcoming challenge of Kell Brook.
The 25 year-old St Louis native (24-1, pictured) defends against 26 year-old Brook (29-0) in Detroit on February 23rd.

"I've watched the tapes of his fights," Alexander told "My coach studied the tapes too and we don't see anything special. He's a tough fighter, a tough kid, but we'll be ready.
"He's good, he's hungry, he's young, just like me. But he doesn't have the tools I have to beat me. My skills are way better.
"There are no real names on his record, in his career he hasn't fought anybody like me at all. The one test that he did have was Carson Jones and he was fighting for his life at the end of that fight."


Simon Barclay speaks to BoxRec News from Klitschko's Champ Camp

Heavyweight world champion Wladimir Klitschko is preparing to face Australian Alex Leapai on 26th April and as usual he has chosen the familiar surroundings of the Austrian Alps. Just hours after winning his professional debut at the Copper Box in London, 24-year old Corby cruiserweight Simon Barclay was on a plane to join up with him in what the Ukrainian calls 'Champ Camp'.

Fight Reports

Brentwood’s ‘Smokin’ Joe Mullender (6-1) got back on track with a close points win over Peckham’s Diego Burton (4-4-1) over ten rounds at the York Hall on Saturday. It was a belter of a fight on a slightly smaller than usual Goodwin bill, partly due to 'Flash' Ashley Sexton not making weight again (more on this later) and 'Big Dog' AJ Carter’s opponent, who reportedly turned up with Evo-Stick holding his mooey in place.
