(October 14, 2015) -Tonight’s Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) on ESPN fight card featured Mexican brawler Aron Martinez (20-4-1, 4 KOs) capturing a unanimous decision (97-93, 97-93, 96-94) victory over former world champion Devon Alexander “The Great” (26-4, 14 KOs). In a 10-round battle, spent mostly on the inside, Martinez managed to emerge victorious.

The judges scored the fight 119-109, 118-110 and 116-112.
GLENDALE, AZ. (October 12, 2015) – Televised fighters on the Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) on ESPN fight card taking place this Wednesday in Glendale, AZ took time out of their busy schedules to host a media workout at Central Street Boxing Gym.
Devon Alexander “The Great” (26-3, 14 KOs) will take on battle-tested Mexican Aron Martinez (19-4-1, 4 KOs) in the headlining bout at Gila River Arena. Televised coverage is slated to begin at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. MT/PT with the U.S. debut of featherweight world champion Lee Selby (21-1, 8 KOs) as he takes on former three-division world champion Fernando “Cochulito” Montiel (54-4-2, 39 KOs).
Former two division champ and gay marriage advocate, (only joking!) Devon Alexander (26-3, 14ko), will return to the ring against 2nd tier Mexican Aaron Martinez (19-4-1, 4ko), on an Oct 14th PBC on ESPN bill that is to also feature new IBF featherweight champion Lee Selby (21-1, 8ko) defending against Mexican veteran Fernando Montiel (54-4-2, 39ko).
Alexander will be returning for what is ostensibly a confidence builder, which follows his shutout points loss to Britain’s Amir Khan last December, a fight that was the culmination of a dip in form that started when he was lost his IBF title to pre-fight underdog Shawn Porter almost two years ago.
Amir Khan won a convincing 12-round unanimous decision victory over Devon Alexander in a matchup of two of the fastest welterweights in the world on Saturday in the main event of SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING® from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
The impressive victory was nearly a shutout, with Khan winning 119-109, 118-110 and 120-108 to remain undefeated at 147 pounds and extend his winning streak against southpaws to seven.
In just his second fight at welterweight pounds, Khan was the supremely accurate boxer. The former unified super lightweight world champion landed 54 percent of his power punches to Alexander’s 32 percent and 43 percent of his total shots versus Alexander’s 20 percent. But it was Khan’s hand speed and combinations that were too much for Alexander, who couldn’t get inside against and take any chances against the Brit.
