The Great

While the "villains" like Mayweather get all the headlines, I really like talking to the good guys in the sport. Juan Diaz is one of my all time favorites. Another guy that is quickly entering that elite status is Jr. welter champ Devon Alexander "The Great".

He's one of the nicest guys in the sport, is always smiling (even in the gym when practically no one is there) and has a great story of perseverance. From a very tough neighborhood in East St. Louis, Devon started boxing as a kid with several of his friends. He's the only one not dead or in jail.

Find out why and how he plans to beat a tough Juan Urango.

Fightnews' Flattop will be on and of course he and I will disagree about everything and I'll prove him wrong on all topics.

Tune in Thursday night at 9 ET at

Urango will knock Alexander out before the 9th round. 100% guaranteed. I've already put two grand on it. Free money.

Wow. It's been a while since we've heard from you, Bill. I thought you forgot all about us.

What kind of odds did you get?
