Alexander, Kotelnik Promise To Kick a.ss During Presser


ST. LOUIS—A typical boxing press conference today at Scottrade Center in St. Louis suddenly turned raucous after undefeated unified 140-pound world champion Devon Alexander’s trainer told former WBA junior welterweight champion Andriy Kotelnik, a Ukrainian making his first visit to America, “That’s a long way to come for an a.ss whuppin.’

Alexander (20-0, 13 KOs), from St. Louis, will put his WBC and IBF crowns on the line against Kotelnik (31-3-1, 13 KOs) in an Aug. 7 world championship doubleheader that will also feature undefeated IBF light heavyweight champion Tavoris “Thunder” Cloud (20-0, 18 KOs), from Tallahassee, Fla., taking on former IBF world champion Glen Johnson, from Jamaica now f!ghting out of Miami.

Kotelnik did not take kindly to Cunningham’s comments on behalf of Alexander.

“They say it’s a long way to come for an a.ss kicking, but I have a question for Devon Alexander after his people have made all these boasts,” Kotelnik said. “Will Devon come back and f!ght me in a rematch in the Ukraine after I kick his a.ss?

“There will be an a.ss kicking, but St. Louis will be surprised who will be doing it.”

Cunningham had more for Kotelnik.

“I never make predictions, and I wasn’t going to tell the public this, but I just told my team last week that Devon’s going to knock out Kotelnik in two rounds. We’re kicking his a.ss.”

Alexander was more reserved in his comments.

“Kotelnik is a good, solid f!ghter. But I’m a better f!ghter. His time has come and gone. He was a champion but he’s not anymore, and he’s certainly not going to be champion after this f!ght.

Cunningham, before he made his bolder comments, spoke of how proud he is of Alexander.

“Devon is the perfect example of what you can do with hard work and dedication,” Cunningham said. “He was not born with a silver spoon in his mouth. He wasn’t even the best f!ghter in my gym, but look at him now. Look at what hard work and remembering to rise above your circumstances can do.”

Promoter Don King was his normal effusive self.

“So you know, what we have is here is like when Dorothy clicked her heels in the Wizard of Oz, like when Marvin Gayle said, ‘Something’s Goin’ On,’ we’ve got something big going on in St. Louis on Aug. 7,” King said. “Two world championships already, and I’m not done building the card yet.”

Light heavyweight world champion Cloud said his f!ght with Johnson will be a good one.

“Glen comes right at you and nobody will be running in this f!ght,” Cloud said. “That’s not my style. Glen is a good f!ghter and so am I. St. Louis will get more than their money’s worth come Aug. 7.”

Johnson’s thoughts were much the same as Cloud’s in summing up their f!ght.

“I see a lot of similarity in my style and Tavoris Cloud’s style,” Johnson said. “He likes to come forward and so do I. We’re both going into the kitchen to do some cooking, and St. Louis will get the meal.”

Tickets priced at $17.50, $35, $70, $150 and $300 went on sale this morning at Scottrade Center Box Office, all Ticketmaster Ticket Centers, by phone at 1-800-745-3000, or online at ticketmaster.com. A per ticket facility fee will be added to all tickets purchased at all locations, including at the Scottrade Center Box Office. Additional Ticketmaster service charges and handling fees apply. For disabled seating, call 314-622-5420. The event is being promoted by Don King Productions, and doors will open at 5:30 p.m. followed by a full undercard. The above-mentioned world championships will be televised live on HBO’s Boxing After Dark beginning at 10 p.m. ET/PT (9 p.m. CT). Cloud vs. Johnson is presented in a.ssociation with DiBella Entertainment and Warriors Boxing Promotions.

Former WBA Super Lightweight Champion
Olympic Silver Medalist in 2000
Born in Lviv, Ukraine, on Dec. 29, 1977
Height: 5’ 7 ˝” – Weight: Super Lightweight (140)
Record: 31-3-1, 13 KOs

Andriy Kotelnik grew up poor in the large city of Lviv, Ukraine. Even though his family did not have great wealth, they instilled in their son a great love of family and community. In their wildest imagination, the family could not have guessed that young Andriy would one day capture the hearts of a million people who make their homes in this working class Ukrainian railway city, let alone the entire nation. But that is exactly what happened after Andriy won a spot to represent Ukraine at the 2000 “millennium” Olympic games held in Sydney, Australia.

He made it all the way to the championship final before losing to Cuban champion Mario Kindelan, but he was still a hero to his countrymen for bringing home a silver medal.

That performance impressed top German promoter Universum and its owner, Peter Kohl, who brought him to Germany to begin his professional career later that year. Kotelnik took off like a rocket, compiling a run of 23 straight victories.

The undefeated Kotelnik fought in a WBA elimination bout on Oct. 21, 2004, against Souleymane M’baye (29-1) in M’baye’s home country of France at the Palais des Sport Marcel Cerdan.

Kotelnik lost a highly controversial split-decision to M’baye in what many viewed as a hometown decision. One judge favored Kotelnik 115-114, the second favored M’baye 115-113, and the third judge gave it to the Frenchman by a preposterous 117-111.

Kotelnik may have faced “home cooking” for the second time on July 9, 2005, in Nottingham, England, when he took on European champion Junior “The Hitter” Witter (31-1-2). Witter hails from Sheffield, so it certainly didn’t hurt him when after 12 rounds the f!ght went to the scorecards. Two favored the English f!ghter by the razor-thin margin of 115-114, and the third judge agreed but saw a f!ght nobody else did with Witter dominating at 117-111.

After the loss to Witter, Kotelnik rebounded by defeating Olympic medalist Muhammad Abdullaev.

Kotelnik tried to settle a previous score with M’baye, who was now the WBA world champion, when he agreed to a rematch on March 10, 2007, in Liverpool, England. No stranger to trying to win on the road, Kotelnik made the most of his first shot at a world title, f!ghting M’baye to a split draw. One judge saw Kotelnik as the clear winner 117-112, the second observer saw M’baye as the victor 115-113, and the deciding third tally was hopelessly deadlocked at 114-114.

Two f!ghts later on March 22, 2008, in Cardiff, Wales, Kotelnik proved he’d learned from the aforementioned bitter disappointments. After M’baye surrendered the WBA 140-pound crown to England’s then-undefeated Gavin Rees (27-0), Kotelnik agreed to face Rees.

Kotelnik won it the hard way, by boxing rather than punching. His perseverance paid off when his adherence to strategy paid off when he stopped Rees in the 12th round to finally capture his first world title. He also breathed a heavy sigh of relief for not leaving another decision to the judges.

Kotelnik finally ended up on the winning side of a close decision against previously undefeated power-puncher Marcos Maidana (25-0) on Feb. 7, 2009, in Rostock, Germany. It was a close split-decision win for Kotelnik to retain his belt, and it stands as Maidana’s lone career loss.

The Ukrainian’s 18-month reign as champion ended at M.E. N Arena in Manchester, England, on July 18, 2009, when he met English phenom Amir Khan in a battle of former Olympic silver medalists.

From the opening bell, Khan gave one of the best performances of his young career, keeping his distance with excellent footwork and speed. That was the pattern of the f!ght as the counter-punching Kotelnik was forced to take more of an aggressor’s role against the fleet-footed youngster’s long range sharp-shooting.

There was good two-way action, especially in the early rounds. Kotelnik appeared to have caught Khan with his deceptively quick hands in round three, but the youngster went off and running on his speedy wheels. Khan’s strategy to quickly move in and out paid dividends on the scorecards, all of which favored the Englishman

Sensing a need to change his course, Kotelnik signed with Don King in May after the legendary promoter traveled all the way to Lviv to sign him to a three-year promotional agreement.

Out was former trainer Michael Timm and in came Stacey McKinley, who has worked with or trained Samuel “The Nigerian Nightmare” Peter, Ricardo “El Matador’ Mayorga, “Iron” Mike Tyson, Zab “Super’ Judah and Ray Mercer among others.

Kotelnik’s first visit to America was in June for a press conference to announce his f!ght against WBC/IBF 140-pound champion Devon Alexander, which was held in St. Louis at Scottrade Center, home of the Aug. 7 event.

Alexander had this to say: “Kotelnik is a good, solid f!ghter. But I’m a better f!ghter. His time has come and gone. He was a champion but he’s not anymore, and he’s certainly not going to be champion after this f!ght.

Alexander’s trainer Kevin Cunningham spoke highly of Kotelnik in the beginning.

“I think he’s a solid Top 10, 140-pounder,” Cunningham said respectfully of the Ukrainian. “Who could deny that? He is a 2000 Olympic silver medalist. He’s the former WBA champion. He beat Marcos Maidana. He lost his title to Amir Khan, but Khan basically pity-patted and ran all night in his f!ght. In Amir Khan’s hometown, he won a decision over Kotelnik. It’s not like he beat Kotelnik up or anything. What we plan to do is really make a statement and do some damage.

“Kotelnik is one of the best f!ghters in the world. That’s why I wanted him for Devon. He beat one of the baddest f!ghters in the world, Marcos Maidana. This boy Kotelnik is from the Ukraine. That’s a long way to come for an a.ss whuppin’.

“I never make predictions, and I wasn’t going to tell the public this, but I just told my team last week that Devon’s going to knock out Kotelnik in two rounds.”

Kotelnik responded, “It is great to be in America for the first time. This will be the most difficult and challenging f!ght of my career against a St. Louis favorite. I want everyone in America to know that I didn’t come here to be an opponent. I came here to become world champion again. I will be in the best condition of my career.

“Alexander and his people are very brave because they are at home. But we’ll see how brave they are after I beat Alexander. I still love America. It’s one of the great countries, but I have a job to do and I will do it. Everybody you know should watch this f!ght. I am going to show you everything I can do, and you will not be disappointed.

“There will be an a.ss kicking, but St. Louis will be surprised who will be doing it.”

Five big billboards went up in St. Louis this week promoting hometown hero and unified world champion Devon Alexander’s appearance at Scottrade Center on Aug. 7 against former world titleholder Andriy Kotelnik. The billboard shown above towers above the mighty Mississippi River as it flows through the Gateway City.

Alexander Ready To Punish Bradley, Crack Khan's Chin


By Ismael AbduSalaam

This coming Saturday in St. Louis, Devon Alexander will defend his WBC and IBF 140-pound titles against ex-champion Andriy Kotelnik. But looking ahead, the young titlist does not see any substantial challenge in being able to defeat Timothy Bradley and Amir Khan to unify junior welterweight division.

The 23-year-old St. Louis f!ghter was not impressed with Bradley’s recent welterweight performance against Carlos Abregu. According to Alexander, Bradley fell flat in what should have been an HBO televised showcase bout to build his name.

“Bradley had a walking duck. The guy wasn’t even that crafty and Bradley [still] lost some clear rounds,” he said in an exclusive interview with BoxingScene.com. “He didn’t even try to put it on him. The guy he fought was just raggedy. I don’t see how he didn’t just totally dominate him. [Bradley] was in a f!ght.”

On Amir Khan’s f!ght with Paulie Malignaggi, Alexander points to that contest as a clear example of selective matchmaking. Khan dominated the light-hitting Malignaggi to score a TKO and retained his WBA junior welterweight title in May.

“With Amir Khan and Paulie Malignaggi, they [Golden Boy Promotions] knew what they were doing when they cherrypicked him [Malignaggi]. They want to protect Amir Khan’s chin,” Alexander explained. “Khan has a lot of flaws too. He has a good jab but is just a solid f!ghter like the rest of them.”

In recent weeks Timothy Bradley and Amir Khan have publicly called out each other in the press. At the present, neither f!ghter has confirmed their next bout.

Alexander inspires Rams

St. Louis Rams Head Coach Steve Spagnolo invited undefeated WBC/IBF 140-pound champion Devon Alexander “The Great” to speak to his team today after a morning training camp practice at Rams Park. “I just broke camp in Las Vegas and you guys have just started,” Alexander said. “If we both have done and are doing our work, I’ll remain a unified world champion on Saturday and the Rams will soon be headed back to the Super Bowl.”

Alexander also presented Coach Spagnolo with a glove that he and his promoter Don King signed.

Tim Bradley vs Devon Alexander Deal is Getting Close


By Lem Satterfield

A deal to finalize a unification bout between WBC and IBF junior welterweight champion Devon Alexander (20-0, 13KOs) and Tim Bradley (26-0, 11KOs), who holds the WBO's version of the title, is getting close, according to Bradley's promoter, Gary Shaw. HBO Sports President Ross Greenburg wants to televise the f!ght on January 29.

Alexander returns to action this Saturday in an HBO televised title defense from St. Louis. He defends his unified crown against former champion Andriy Kotelnik, who is the only man to beat Marcos Maidana (28-1, 27 KOs). Shaw, and Alexander's promoter Don King, are pretty much in agreement on the f!ght.

"We're close, yes. HBO has made one offer and they're going to come back with a final offer maybe even sometime this week. And then I'll make Team Bradley the final offer to f!ght Devon Alexander," said Shaw.

"I know that HBO is willing to put a lot of muscle behind that f!ght in order to make that one of their premiere f!ghts of 2011. Their muscle and their marketing power is as important as the money that they pay for the f!ght. Once we sign [to f!ght] Devon Alexander, [then] Tim Bradley won't be f!ghting in the fall."
