Expert Boxing Predictions Analysis: Our handicappers are perplexed that Vegas is giving a fighter of Alexander’s caliber only a 30% chance of winning against the china chinned Khan. These welterweights are evenly matched with the exception of Alexander’s better durability and physical strength. Khan is an athletically gifted pug with good technique but is slight of frame and a solid punch to his mug turns his legs into jelly. Alexander is not a huge puncher but the St. Louis southpaw has enough sting to hurt Khan with regularity. Khan might be a touch faster than Alexander but the Brit’s speedy combinations are more flash than effective, accurate punches. Amir Khan vs Devon Alexander Betting Odds Total is at 8.5 Rounds with the OVER at -470

Khan is going to try to use movement and his rapid fire jab to control the pace but Alexander “The Great” will force him to fight. Khan fired strength coach Alex Ariza before his last fight and appears to have suffered a drop off in physical strength since the change. Alexander can bring pressure and his physical presence on the inside should give the Brit trouble. Khan will score in spots with his blinding flurries but the judges will favor the aggressor Alexander. Alexander already owns a pair of wins over ESPN2 News top-30 pound-4-pound fighters in Lucas Matthyse and Marcos Maidana and Khan will be #3. Play the underdog to eke out a close but well deserved decision on the cards.
