After spending 12 years in prison, for armed robbery and assault, middleweight Vaughn Alexander(7-0, 5 KOs) is trying to make up for lost time. The chance to make up for the lost time comes Saturday against Andres Calixto Rey(14-3, 9) at the Mohegan Sun resort in Connecticut.
The 31-year old Alexander is the older brother of former IBF welterweight champion Devon Alexander. Vaughn Alexander was considered by some to be more talented than his brother Devon. “Vaughn was a better fighter than Devon,” said Vaughn and Devon’s former promoter Don King back in 2010.
Originally, Alexander-Rey was going to be an eight-round fight on the non-televised portion of the HBO Latino card, but due to the cancellation of Arif Magomedev’s fight with Elias Espadas(Magomedev’s illness). Alexander-Rey will now be a 10-round fight, and it will be the co-feature on HBO Latino.
The St. Louis native believes he will impress. “I am just one step closer to taking over this middleweight division. I am ready to fight whoever, wherever. I am ready to go to war,” Alexander said at the pre-fight press conference. “I am going to put on a display.”
In the main event, Sullivan Barrera will fight Paul Parker in a 10-round light heavyweight bout. The HBO Latino Boxing telecast begins at 11:00 p.m. (live ET/tape-delayed PT)

The Larry Sanders experiment is over in Cleveland. According to Jason Lloyd of The Athletic, Sanders, 28, missed the team bus that took the Cavaliers to the airport in Miami on Tuesday. Ultimately, Sanders would miss the team flight to Cleveland. He would have to find his own way back to Cleveland.
Here is what Cavs’ GM David Griffin had to say about Sanders:
“He didn’t have any kind of a setback relative to any of the demons he had or any of those things,” Cavs general manager David Griffin said. “He’s an NBA player. He’s kind of flaky. So sometimes you’re late. You’re this. You’re that. None of those things were incidents. But I have to take you in totality as a player and if I know you’re not going to play, then what I’m going to get is everything else. And if I didn’t even feel confident that he’d be a benefit to the group in practice, then it was hard for me to tell coaches, ‘This is a guy you’ve got to keep.’ So they had the conversation on the plane, what else can we do? And we talked about it and we landed and we talked to all the rest of our staff and made a decision.”
This could impact his future in the NBA moving forward. This seemed like the perfect opportunity for Sanders, but maybe he was not ready to handle a “NBA lifestyle” again.
No one is giving the Blazers a chance against the Warriors, except for Blazers’ G Damian Lillard. When asked by CSN Northwest if the Blazers were going to win their first-round series against the Warriors in six or seven games, Lillard answered: “Blazers in six.”
The Blazers might take their best swing, but it won’t be enough! Warriors in five!
The series begins on Sunday.

Tim Tebow has gotten off to an okay start with the Columbia Fireflies (Mets Class A affiliate). After five games, Tebow is batting .200, with 2 home runs and 5 RBI, but his manager is happy with Tebow the leader.
“He’s the leader on the team already,” manager Jose Leger told TMZ Sports.
We can question Tebow’s ability, but you can’t question his leadership ability. He was a leader at Florida, a leader with the Broncos, and now a leader with the Fireflies!

According to 49ers’ GM John Lynch, San Francisco might be interested in moving the number two pick in the NFL Draft. Lynch addressed the media today. The 49ers, who were 2-14 last season, need a lot of help. The defense needs help, and they need a quarterback.
This was not a very talented team last season.
John Lynch, you are on the clock!
#49ers GM John Lynch said he's received calls expressing interest in No. 2 pick: "We're open for business."
