Sheffield’s Kell Brook popped Argentine Hector Saldivia like a balloon at the Steel City’s Motorpoint Arena, Saturday. After being steadily and systematically softened up, an already sickened “El Tigre” (based in Oxnard, Calif.) walked onto a ramrod straight left that put him onto his back and, after appearing to over-egg the wobbly-leg routine at the 0:28 mark, he was escorted back to his corner by referee Howard Foster (England). Brook won at a canter here and in doing so he fulfilled another in a bunch of nonsensical mandates from the alphabet despots he has plumped to appease. Saldivia had already hit the deck in the 1st after Brook unfurled a cute right uppercut that zipped the visitor backwards onto his pants as though he’d trodden on a high-speed running machine. With an approach built on clubbing, eager-fisted aggression, Saldivia (146 ½) had planned to overrun Brook (146) in the same manner American Carson Jones almost managed to back in July. Brook, though, had worked...

Devon Alexander Beats Randall Bailey for Second World Boxing Title

Jason DeCrow/AP Devon Alexander of St. Louis didn’t have much of a problem with 38-year-old slugger Randall Bailey on Oct. 20 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York and took away his world title with a unanimous 12-round decision. The 25-year-old is now the new IBF Welterweight Champion after winning by scores of 115-111, 116-110, and 117-109. Alexander stayed away from Bailey’s...

Randall Bailey Has Formulated A Plan To Beat Devon Alexander

(Devon Alexander, left; Randall Bailey, right) When Randall Bailey walked back to his corner after the 8th round of his fight with Mike Jones, his long time trainer John David Jackson wasn’t in the center of his corner, it was his cut man, Chico Rivas. Bailey needed a knockout to win, and his corner aware of the fact, made a tactical move not often seen in the sweet science...

Weekend Afterthoughts On What's Next For Danny Garcia, Devon Alexander And Others

(Photo credit: Tom Casino, Showtime) First things first: I biffed the preview of Saturday night's Showtime card, plain and simple. I didn't realize it until today, when friend of the site Jake Donovan pointed out that the last "more is better" card wasn't in June, but in September, when the network aired a quadrupleheader that was the best of the three big...

Garcia-Morales II live blog

IBF Welterweight: Randall Bailey (43-7-0, 37 KOs) vs. Devon Alexander (23-1-0, 13 KOs) Round 12: What should have been an aggressive, all-out attack from Bailey, has been little more than another tepid round. Alexander has been very effective implementing his game plan and he is about to be rewarded for it. Bailey has thrown no haymakers in this last round and as a result this...

Nickels, Dimes And Death At Barclays

(Saturday night's Barclays combatants, via) Being there isn't all it's made out to be. Hell, I live five minutes by bike from the new Barclays Center, the long, tortured construction of which I've pretty much reviled from the beginning, having had dreams of things I could do to developer and Nets co-owner Bruce Ratner if I weren't sane. Assuming I am sane...
