Two undefeated Americans getting it on. It shouldn’t seem like such a big deal, frankly. It shouldn’t be such a novelty. But it is. It happens much too rarely in this day and age. So the hype surrounding the Tim Bradley/Devon Alexander clash on HBO has been heavy. Expectations might be a tad high for two men who haven’t shown to this point that they deserve to exit the category of lesser light stars. Neither man is a superstar. But that could change come Saturday….
Now, some of us don’t neccessarily believe that the guy who exits Detroit the winner on Saturday night is the man at 140. Some of us think that Amir Khan will separate himself from this pack in 2011. But that doesn’t mean TSS Universe isn’t psyched to see the two undefeateds clash.
Editor Mike, as is his way, leans to the more experienced of the two. But I’m more curious to hear what you think. Can Alexander shrug off that so-so outing the last time he gloved up? Is Bradley a bit too rudimentary, too formulaic for the slicker southie? Will this one live up to, surpass or fall beneath the weighty expectations? Weigh in!
