Devon Alexander (27-5-1, 14KOs) has traveled a tough road. Alexander dealt with a period of inactivity as he battled prescription painkiller addiction. Since then he has been fighting trying to fight his way back to contender status. His second to last fight, which was with Victor Ortiz was non-stop action yet the outcome was a draw. His last fight against Andre Berto, in which Berto was forced to taste canvas in that fight, ended in a close split decision victory in favor for Berto although many feel both fights could have went to Alexander.
