A Devon Alexander (26-3, 14 KO's) vs Diego Chaves (23-2, 19 KO's) fight has been agreed upon according to a report by Boxingscene earlier today. The IBF eliminator fight will put the winner of the fight in line to face IBF titleholder Kell Brook next. No date of venue has been agreed upon as of yet. Both camps were able to work out a deal before the purse bid was set to take place.
Alexander is coming off a unanimous decision loss that he suffered at the hands of Amir Khan in December. Chaves was able to take Timothy Bradley to a draw in his last bout, a fight that many people felt that he lost. Before that Chaves lost by disqualification to Brandon Rios is what was a closely contested fight on the scorecards.
