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."


Eric Armit's Snips and Snipes - April 17, 2014

The live gate for Pacquiao vs. Bradley II came to almost $8 million, so with Pacquiao guaranteed $20 million and Bradley $6 million it gives a picture of just how much money TV puts into the pot. I am surprised there is not a market in 'idols of the gods of TV' as there's a lot of big time fighters who should be worshipping at the entertainment temple that makes them so rich.
