Mayweather hopefully will NOT fight Devon Alexander
Floyd Mayweather tweeted on twitter last night that IBF welterweight champion Devon Alexander is in the top running to fight him on the May 4th card. PLEASE don’t do it, Floyd! Devon is a champ sure, but this makes for a very boring fight style-wise. And as far as Floyd saying he wants to put the finishing touches on his legacy, this is not the way to do it.
Pay per view numbers for this won’t be big. I know I won’t be paying for it if it happens. I am a huge Floyd fan but come on, at least fight Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero. Hopefully this is to throw us off who he is really fighting because Floyd is all for the money, and I can’t see this bout making big numbers for him. I know everyone is saying fight Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, and it’s getting old but he has not fought anyone to even earn the shot at Floyd.
That’s not to say I don’t think it would be a good fight; I’m just saying. Someone like WBA junior middleweight champion Austin Trout, he deserves a shot; WBO welterweight champion Tim Bradley also deserves a shot, as well as “The Ghost.”
I suppose on paper Alexander does too. Boxing is an amazing sport, and those who love it are loyal, but if the sport continues to disappoint fans, people will lose interest quick. The best should fight the best, END OF.
