Saturday Morning Notes: Witter-Alexander

Bad Left Hook23rd May, 2009

The WBC has announced that promoters for Devon Alexander (Don King) and Junior Witter (Mick Hennessy) have come to an agreement to stage a bout between the two fighters on July 11. No location has been named, but the two that make the most sense are St. Louis and a smaller UK venue. I'd guess King will push really hard to get home field for Alexander (18-0, 11 KO), and same goes for Hennessy on behalf of Witter (37-2-2, 22 KO). Witter held the title from September 15, 2006 through May 10, 2008, when he lost it to Timothy Bradley. Bradley recently vacated/was stripped when he unified the strap with the WBO's title.
