Last Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Amir Khan (30-3 / 19 by KO) looked absolutely brilliant scoring a lopsided 12 round decision over Devon Alexander (26-3 / 14 by KO) in their welterweight fight.
Khan was quicker and more accurate and out jabbed and out boxed Alexander. The scorecards were 119-109, 118-110, 120-108; with my unofficial score 119-109 (eleven rounds to one).
With the win, Khan puts himself in line for a “possible” bout with champion Floyd Mayweather.
On the undercard, WBA interim welterweight champion Keith Thurman (24-0 / 21 by KO) retained his title with a 12 round unanimous decision over previously unbeaten Leonard Bundu (31-1-2 / 11 by KO); and former three division champion Abner Mares (28-1-1 / 14 by KO) won by fifth round knockout over Jose Ramirez (25-5 / 15 by KO) in their featherweight fight.
On the same night, at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas, Timothy Bradley (30-1-1 / 12 by KO) and Diego Chaves (23-2-1 / 19 by KO) fought to a “controversial” draw in their welterweight fight.
