Devon Alexander, two years removed from an upset loss to Aron Martinez, will try to prove he’s got more than just opinions on the relative stress-strain curves of vaginas and anuses when he takes on Walter Castillo on November 21st. The fight headlines a PBC on FS1 show in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Alexander (26-4, 14 KO), the former IBF champ, has essentially been in freefall since losing his title to Shawn Porter in 2013, going 1-3 in his last four. According to the ESPN article, he struggled with painkiller addiction during his layoff, but is confident he can get back on track.

Castillo (26-4-1, 19 KO) will be moving back to welterweight after a rough run at 140 that saw him dominated by Amir Imam and Sergey Lipinets. His greatest accomplishment is probably escaping with a draw against Keita Obara.

Not the worst bounce-back opponent.

The card will also feature PBC regular Miguel Cruz (16-0, 11 KO) against David Grayton (15-1-1, 11 KO), also at welterweight, and both Gary Antuanne Russell (2-0, 2 KO) and Antonio Russell (9-0, 7 KO) against TBA.
