Wayne “The Great” Alexander

A generation of fight fans will have missed out on witnessing the explosive punching power of  former British, European and WBU champion Wayne Alexander who at one stage seemed destined to be the heir-apparent to the Dark Destroyer Nigel Benn at Light-Middleweight.

His one-punch demolition of Mehrdud Takaloo to win the WBU title was his finest hour in a fight career that had at times lengthy bouts of inactivity where Alexander admits to lacking motivation and discipline at times during his career over a period of 11 years in which he fought 27 times with a record of 24 wins and 3 defeats.

Alexander however had the heart of a lion and with notification of just one day stepped in as a late replacement to take on WBO Light-Middleweight Champion Harry Simon who he rocked in the 2nd round before losing by TKO in the 4th round.

Enjoy some of the  devastating knockouts of “Alexander The Great”!
