Bob Alexander

From the FBHOF:
Everyone in the fight game in Florida knows Bob Alexander, one of the top ring announcers in the entire country. Born in Detroit, he graduated from Charlotte High School in Punta Gorda in 1981 and began his radio career the next year. A graduate of the University of South Florida, Alexander entered the world of ring announcing in 1989 when he convinced a promoter to let him announce on a rainy night on Sanibel Island. The storm took out the sound system that night and Alexander had to shout the introductions through cupped hands for the rest of the night. The fourth fight he announced was broadcast nation-wide and included the 11th professional fight of Bernard Hopkins. He has appeared on several major networks, including Showtime, ESPN, Fox Sports Net, Sun Sports, MSG and pay-per-view. He served as master of ceremonies for the inaugural Florida Boxing Hall of Fame class of 2009.

Inducted into the Florida Boxing Hall of Fame (Non-participant) in 2010.
