Devon Alexander: ‘I’m on a journey’

Devon Alexander is back! Alexander, who dominated Walter Castillo on Tuesday night in St. Petersburg, Florida, was very happy to get back into the ring:

“This feels really good,” said Alexander. “I’ve been on a journey that I didn’t expect to go through and I’m thankful to be back in the ring and have my career back.”

Alexander, who has not fought in two years due to an opioid addiction, believes he has the talent and the ability to beat anybody at 147:

“I’m going to talk to my coach and my team and see what we can come up with next. I’m ready to fight anybody out there. I don’t have any cuts so I’m ready. I’m on a journey and I’m thankful to be here.”

Being that Alexander is with Al Haymon, he has a lot of options at 147. As the 30-year-old Alexander showed on Tuesday night, he still has the talent to give any fighter at 147 some trouble.
