Devon Alexander vs. Marcos Maidana 

Saturday night, RFT cover subject Devon Alexander took on Marcos Maidana at Scottrade Center as part of an HBO-broadcast slate of boxing matches. Also on the card was a junior lightweight title match between Adrien Broner and Eloy Perez in which Broner made quick work of his opponent and retained his belt. In his non-title bout, hometown favorite Alexander defeated Maidana in a 10-round unanimous decision. Read Albert Samaha's profile of Alexander, "Familiar Ring," here. Photos by Jon Gitchoff
