New foe named for Devon Alexander

Promoter Eddie Hearn says IBF welterweight champion Devon Alexander will now face Lee Purdy (20-3-1, 13 KOs), who is currently rated IBF #4, on May 18 in Atlantic City. Purdy will step in for stablemate Kell Brook, who pulled out of the fight with an injury. Alexander-Brook had been postponed three times, twice due to injuries to Brook, once due to an injury to Alexander. Hearn also said Brook will remain #1 mandatory challenger with the IBF.
