Alexander is coming off a dominating performance against Walter Castillo in November. A win for Alexander will get him closer to his goal of becoming a world champion again.
“This is going to be an excellent fight. I’ve known Victor for a long time, but this is going to be business on February 17. I think I’m the best fighter in the world, and I have to go prove that,” Alexander said today.
Alexander insists that no one can beat him when he is at his best, but he knows a loss would be a huge setback:
“I’m an all-around good fighter and I think my speed and quickness will be the difference. No one can hit me when I’m at the top of my game. “I don’t see this one going the distance. We’re both very hungry. We know that a loss puts us at the back of the line and neither of us can afford that.”
This is essentially a win or go home type fight. Neither fighter can afford a loss. Based off of his talent and skill set, Alexander should get it done on February 17.
