No Holds Barred: Devon Alexander, Juan Urango, Don King

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman previews the 140-pound title unification fight between WBC champion Devon Alexander (19-0, 12 KOs) and IBF champion Juan Urango (22-2-1, 17 KOs). This fight will take place Saturday, March 6, at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut, and be shown live in the U.S. on HBO.

We spoke with both Devon Alexander and Juan Urango on a media conference call this past week, and the discussion of how they each will approach this fight resulted in some verbal fireworks. We also spoke with Don King, who promotes Alexander, about the importance of title unification fights, and also got comments from him on the importance of the Internet media.

In addition, we contrast the Alexander-Urango fight, which should be very competitive, with the numerous mismatches and showcase fights typical of boxing, such as the Giovanni Segura-Walter Tello brawl this past Saturday night, February 20, which was entertaining but one-sided.
