The verdict is still out the future career prospects of Devon Alexander and Victor Ortiz after the two veterans battled to a controversial draw in El Paso, Texas.
Alexander, fighting for only the third time in three years, showed a sharp southpaw jab and continually nailed Ortiz with right hooks and straight lefts. The shots resulted in a large mouse under Ortiz’s left eye, but the former champion never wavered in coming forward and inviting power shot exchanges.
The scorecards were 115-113 Ortiz and 114-114 twice. Both guys expressed their willingness to do it again.
“I would love a rematch,” said Alexander. “That’s up to my team to see what’s next, but I’ll fight anybody. I’m a real fighter.”
“A rematch would be awesome,” added Ortiz. “If both teams agree and the fans want it, let’s make it happen.”
