Final Post: It's Been a Great Run, Thanks for Your Support!

Thu, 28 Feb 2013 14:09:23 +00002013-02-28T14:09:23Z

Sad news to share today as this will be my final post on the About Boxing site.

While it's been a pleasure covering boxing for About.com, what I'll miss the most is the interaction with the amazingly passionate community of fight fans that have visited and contributed to this site since the late 1990s. You never ceased to dazzle me with your knowledge, humble me with your kind words and support, and startle me with your - at times - shockingly colorful commentary on the issues of the day.

Mayweather vs. Devon Alexander in May?

Wed, 13 Feb 2013 13:46:12 +00002013-02-13T13:46:12Z

Add welterweight beltholder Devon Alexander to the list of possible opponents for the coveted May 4 date with Floyd Mayweather Jr. at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Another welterweight beltholder, Robert Guerrero, was thought to be the favorite for the big payday ... until Mayweather tweeted "The negotiations for my fight are almost done. The front runner is IBF Champion Devon Alexander".

Alexander may, in fact, get the shot. Or Mayweather could simply be bluffing to get Guerrero to accept a small we purse. Either way, Mayweather, who turns 36 later this month, will have been out of the ring for an entire year when he steps into the ring in May. Will he begin to show his age? Or ring rust? Unlikely, but you never know...
