St. Louis to honor Alexander

St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay has announced he will present St. Louis native son Devon Alexander with a ceremonial Key to the City of St. Louis on Thursday at St. Louis City Hall. Alexander won his first world title on Saturday by defeating former 140-pound world champion Junior Witter in Rancho Mirage, Calif. Mayor Slay will honor Alexander, 22, for winning the vacant World Boxing Council super lightweight championship and for setting a tremendous example for young people in his hometown by stressing the importance of education, citizenship and physical fitness. Alexander’s trainer, Kevin Cunningham, a former St. Louis police officer who also manages IBF junior middleweight champion Cory Spinks, will also attend the ceremony.
