On Thursday afternoon, from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada, British star Amir Khan came face to face with St. Louis’ own Devon Alexander ahead of their matchup this Saturday night.
The Showtime-televised attraction will see the two former champions duke it out in an effort to create bigger interest a huge fight in 2015.
Each man has made no bones about wanting to face Floyd Mayweather next year, but Khan and Alexander know too well that they must first collide with one another to see where the chips will fall.
No signs of animosity where in the air when Khan and Alexander did square off, but you can tell these two are ready to get the show on the road.
Khan and Alexander were in talks to face off this time last year, so this is certainly a clash that is a long time overdue.
