Alexander vs Brook: Card could be headed to Detroit on February 23

Al Bello

Devon Alexander and Kell Brook might have their IBF welterweight title fight moved to February 23 in Detroit, where undercard fighter Cornelius 'K9' Bundrage would be the biggest draw on the card.

The IBF welterweight title fight between Devon Alexander and Kell Brook might be rescheduled for February 23, with Detroit a new possible destination.

It's a curious choice off-hand, given that Alexander once fought Timothy Bradley in Pontiac, Mich., and drew a rather pitiful crowd to the truly pitiful Silverdome, but this time there would at least be a local fighter of some significance in the co-feature, as Cornelius "K9" Bundrage will be defending his IBF 154-pound belt against Ishe Smith.

No specific venue is mentioned, but there are plenty of mid-sized buildings that could work fairly well in Detroit, at least in theory. Or they could just put it in Ford Field and find out what happens, I guess. AEG owns the Royal Oak Music Theater in Detroit, but that venue is booked for February 23 by Cinematic Titanic, and I don't think Devon Alexander is about to push TV's Frank out of a booked spot anywhere. Ha! Just the idea of it.
