The final press conference for “The Super Fight” featuring undefeated 140-pound world champions Timothy “Desert Storm” Bradley (26-0, 11 KOs), from North Palm Springs, Calif., and Devon Alexander “The Great” (21-0, 13 KOs), from St. Louis, was held Thursday at the Motor City Casino in Detroit. This world championship unification match will take place on Saturday at the Silverdome in Pontiac.
“It’s just a couple of days before the fight,” the WBO champion Bradley said. “I’m ready. I am focused and ready to do my job. I get a vibe that Devon is going to fight and trade with me and I love it.
“Don’t miss it. It’s going to be a great fight. Devon’s ready to go and so am I. The winner of this fight will be a superstar, a new ‘face’ in boxing.
Alexander made similar observations during his time at the podium.
“This is what I love, what I’ve been wanting for all my life. I’m 120 percent ready for this fight. I’m ready to rock and roll. Come Saturday night, you will see me victorious.”
Alexander’s trainer, Kevin Cunningham, said the time for talking is done.
“All the talking is over,” Cunningham said. “You don’t need talk because you’ve got two world champions who are undefeated and ready to fight.
“Devon is ready to blaze. Timmy’s ready to roll. Devon’s going to deliver on Saturday night.”
