Bout Summary

Alexander likely took the first two rounds out-boxing Maidana. He looked to keep himself just out of range of Maidana's punches and catch him coming forward or slipping Maidana's attack and countering with combinations. Maidana came out with added aggression in Round 3 and looked to rough up Alexander. The two often exchanged during breaks or while holding the other man. A cut opened on the right eyelid of Alexander late in the round that he would paw at. Alexander had a strong second half of Round 4 by evading Maidana's come forward approach and landing with good combinations.
