Earlier today, inside of the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada, former world champions Amir Khan and Dev0n Alexander weighed in ahead of their Showtime-televised duel on Saturday night.

Khan (29-3, 19 KO’s) will face off with Alexander (26-2, 14 KO’s) in what he considers to be a tryout for a possible crack at Floyd Mayweather next year.

On Saturday night, Floyd Mayweather again showed why he is the world’s best fighter by thoroughly outclassing one of the sport’s rising prizefighters, Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez, over twelve rounds.

In front of a raucous crowd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Mayweather nullified all of Canelo’s weapons with superior counter-punching, airtight defense, and deft movement.

Two scorecards reading 117-111 and 116-112 oversaw a ridiculous 114-114 tally from judge C.J. Ross, granting Mayweather his 45th victory.

Watching the action from ringside, IBF welterweight champion Devon Alexander seemed taken aback by Floyd’s performance.

On Saturday night, IBF welterweight champion Devon Alexander (24-1, 13 KO’s) will look to make the first successful defense of his title when he meets up with Colchester’s Lee Purdy (20-3-1, 13 KO’s) inside of the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City.

Having seen a scheduled fight with British star Kell Brook fall through on three separate occasions, Alexander may very well end up facing his countryman Amir Khan next instead.

The latest rumors have Khan, a former champion at 140 pounds, eyeing a move to the welterweight division for his December 7th return, possibly against Alexander.

On Tuesday night, perennial pound for pound king Floyd Mayweather set the boxing world on fire when he announced some recent developments pertaining to his May 4th return to the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

While WBC interim welterweight titlist Robert Guerrero was looked at as the favorite to land the fight, Mayweather instead suggested that St. Louis’ Devon Alexander may be getting the opportunity.

“The negotiations for my fight are almost done,” Mayweather tweeted. “The front runner is IBF Champion Devon Alexander. It’d be a unification bout at welterweight.”

On Wednesday night, I caught up with trainer Tony Morgan, a man who knows Guerrero very well.

Leave it to Floyd Mayweather to throw a curveball to the boxing world on a slow night in terms of boxing news.

Taking to his personal Twitter account on Tuesday night, February 5, Mayweather, 35, revealed some news about some details of his upcoming May 4 fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

While it was largely speculated that Floyd would be in line to face off with WBC interim titlist Robert Guerrero, 29, he dropped the news that he has actually been in conversation with another belt holder.
