Undefeated WBC No. 1 ranked super lightweight Devon Alexander “The Great” (18-0, 11 KOs) participated successfully in a preliminary weigh In yesterday, 30 days prior to his world championship showdown with former world champion Junior “The Hitter” Witter on Aug. 1 at Agua Caliente Casino, Resort & Spa in Rancho Mirage, Calif., on SHOWTIME.
The WBC mandates that fighters competing for their super lightweight (140-pound limit) championship can weigh no more than 10 percent over the weight 30 days prior to their match, in this case up to 154 pounds.  Alexander weighed 148 pounds at his home gym in St. Louis.
