The "Fight for Supremacy" was anything but supreme. It
was a fight in which both men showed more flaws than
anything else. Actually, it may have even proved that
the previous fight between Amir Khan and Marcos Maidana
was the real fight for Supremacy, as both men put it on
the line in a much more professional manner.
Khan showed tremendous heart and good boxing skills,
and Maidana showed brutal punching power.
The fight between Bradley and Alexander was anything
but impressive; both guys threw lots of wild punches
and neither man ever established his style or presence
in the ring. So many wild and flailing punches and
countless head butts which would determine the outcome
of the fight rather than the skills that made them
The winner wanted to fight either Floyd Mayweather Jr.
or Manny Pacquiao. Truth be told, neither man has
even the slightest chance of beating Mayweather Jr. or
Pacquiao, who are considered the two best fighters in
Bradley and Alexander's performances raised doubts
about even being the best in the division, and
after what I saw last night I would favor Khan and
Maidana over both of them.
The fight has a rematch clause but I think their styles
just makes for an ugly fight and that it's a fight
the boxing public may not care to sit through again.
Like I said, more flaws were displayed than skills. I
have seen both fighters perform much better against
different opposition. Even if I chalk it up to just a
bad night, it still counts when there was so much at
stake. Nothing about this particular fight impressed
me. or makes me think that either man is the one to
beat in the division. Maybe expectations were too high,
maybe I gave them both too much praise but as I watched
the fight develop I became more disappointed with the
next round than I was with the one before it.
To me personally, this fight to me personally was a
Big Let Down.
