For months it was rumored that Devon Alexander (25-1,14 KO,s) would be taking on Amir Khan December 7th in New York City, but the situation has changed. Khan has decided to avoid the fight with Alexander, many believe because he is expected to be the leading opponent to face Floyd Mayweather on May 3rd. So in the fear of losing to Alexander to ruin his shot at landing Mayweather, Khan has stepped back, and undefeated welterweight contender Shawn Porter (22-0, 14 KO,s) has stepped forward.
Alexander vs Porter will take place at the Freeman Coliseum in San Antonio, TX on November 30th. The fight will be co-featured by Leo Santa-Cruz (25-0, 15 KO,s) as he faces Cesar Seda (25-1, 17 KO,s). The card will be televised by Showtime.
