Due to the fact Devon Alexander and Timothy Bradley are both undefeated and world champions, a coin toss was held immediately prior to the Official Weigh-In at the Silverdome in Pontiac this afternoon to determine the order of the ring walks. Alexander won the toss and opted to walk to the ring last. Bradley chose to be introduced inside the ring last.

Gary Shaw Productions and Don King Productions have announced that all members of the military, police, fireman, EMS or any veteran who come to Saturday night’s world championship unification match at the Silverdome, dressed in uniform, will be admitted to for free. One ticket will be given to those mentioned above who arrive in uniform at the designated box office window at the Silverdome on Saturday between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m.

Tickets priced from $25 to $400 are still available and can be purchased at the Silverdome box office by calling (248) 338-2500.

    For 18 years,® has delivered daily boxing news to fight fans around the globe. From the beginning, we have always kept Fightnews free to our readers and relied on advertiser support. Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.
