Khan Cruises Over Alexander


Saturday night, the main event at the MGM Grand Las Vegas Casino was filled with anxious boxing fans, who came out to watch Amir “ Kingâ€? Khan (30-3 19KOs) and Devon Alexander (26-3 14 KOs), pick up the punch pace where the co-main event left off. The style mix-match up worked in Khan’s favor winning him the speed battle throughout each round. King Khan’s combinations and straight jabs were landing effectively because he kept Alexander center ring.  Khan maintained control because technically trained Alexander could not respond to Khan’s speed and range. By Round 9, Alexander’s corner tells him “all the rounds are starting to look alikeâ€?, in effort to change his game plan. Round 12, Alexander stunned Kahn but it was to little to late. Khan remains unbeaten with tonight’s Unanimous Decision win. Scores: 119-109, 118-110, and 120-105

*Amir Khan entered the ring with 24 Karat Gold shorts covered in leather. The trunks would be donated to a charity auction “Give Forward.�

Keith “One Timeâ€? Thurman (24-0 21KOs) did not impress fans by going the distance with 40-year-old Italian Jr. Middleweight, Leonard Bundu (31-1-2 11KOs).  The first round would garner the most excitement with Thurman sending Bundu to the mat with a staggering left hook.  Thurman switched stances to southpaw, confusing his opponent. “One Timeâ€? outpunched and ran up the points on Bundu, but that took away from the usual explosive Thurman-esk bouts fans become accustomed to. Thurman explains being out of the ring 8 months due to should injury led to the lackluster performance but promises booing fans more exciting fights in 2015.  All the judges had Thurman 120 -107

Former three-division champion, Abner Mares (28-1-1, 14KO), avenges his record by creating a boxing school for Jose Ramirez (25-5 15 KOs). Mares dropped Ramirez three times within five rounds. Ramirez would lose an additional point due to spitting out the mouthpiece. Mares would get the stoppage victory in the 5th of a scheduled 10 Rounds, adding a TKO to his mounting record. 

The Jr. Middleweight Title Eliminator saw Jermall â€?The Hitmanâ€? Charlo (20-0 16KOs) live up to his stage name, pounding out Lenny Bottai (22-3 9KOs).  Charlo opened a cut under Bottai’s left eyebrow, releasing a cherry red gush of liquid.  While Charlo received warnings for (2) low blows, all was for not when Charlo landed a beautiful left hook to Bottai’s temple ending the bout in a TKO victory.
