Devon Alexander on Danny Garcia & Keith Thurman: ‘I think I would give both of them problems’

Devon Alexander is back! After two years out of the ring, Alexander easily defeated Walter Castillo back in November.

Now, Alexander wants to fight the best at 147. Alexander was a guest on the podcast Go4it with Paul Gant , and discussed the two fighters that he would like to challenge:

“If I had to pick, I would pick Danny Garcia. I see a lot of flaws. A lot of vulnerability in his craft. I see a lot of it, and Keith Thurman, too,” Alexander told Paul Gant. “I would love to fight Keith Thurman, too. A lot of flaws.  Neither one of them has fought a slick, southpaw who can box, who got speed and got some thump, and the skills set that I have.  They haven’t fought nobody like that. Danny Garcia, he got a little speed, but he’s not crafty. I think I’ll give both of them problems. I’ll give both of them something they haven’t saw before.”

At his best, Alexander believes he can’t be touched:

 “When I’m one-hundred percent, nobody can beat me.”

Alexander was out of the ring for two years dealing with an addiction to opioids. However, he is only 30-years-old, and proved against Castillo that he still has the skills to be a factor at 147.  Alexander has speed, some power, and a very good chin. I think he could give both Garcia and Thurman some problems.

Also, Alexander is with powerful advisor Al Haymon, who has a full stable of welterweights, including Thurman and Garcia. So, if he does not get Thurman or Garcia, he still has a lot of options at 147!
