Uncasville, Connecticut: Vaughn Alexander (6-0, 5 KOs), older brother of welterweight contender Devon Alexander, has signed with Main Events and will make his Main Events’ debut later this month on the undercard of the Mohegan Sun’s Rising Stars Boxing Series on Nov. 26 in Uncasville, Connecticut against Antonio Fernandes of Brockton, MA in a six-round match-up.
Twelve years ago, Vaughn Alexander was a hot young undefeated prospect coming off an impressive amateur career with a 5-0 (4 KOs) professional record when he was arrested and sent to prison for more than a decade. Now a free man, he is 30 years old and ready to resume the path he started on 12 years ago. Last week, Alexander stopped Kevin Brown in the second round in his first fight since his release. Now the middleweight from St. Louis, Missouri is ready to make his Main Events debut on Nov. 26 at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut.
When asked about his new deal with Main Events Vaughn responded, “I am ecstatic! Boxing has always been my dream. When I was younger I was always dedicated to my career, but I was also dedicated to the street life as well. While I was in prison I gained a lot of knowledge. I kept my body in shape because I always prayed that I would get back to this position. I refused to allow my God-given talent to go to waste. When I got out of prison everyone was talking about my age and saying I was too old but my body is preserved. I am grateful that, without hesitation, Main Events has given me this opportunity to show that I am still the best!”
Vaughn is advised by long-time friend George Jakovic who added, “Vaughn is beyond happy to be with Main Events. His goal is to be a champion and he knows that with Main Events behind him this is something he is going to accomplish. He can’t wait to get started on November 26. The boxing world is in for a treat because his style is fan-friendly. I’m looking forward to big things to come with the union of Vaughn and Main Events. Vaughn grew up in a place where many of his friends were killed and incarcerated, became a rising young fighter, only to throw it all away with one bad mistake. Yet while he was incarcerated he never thought of himself as a prisoner. His motivation was to get out and make something of his life in the sport he loves. Now he’s back on track to be a champion, not only in the ring, but outside the ring as well.”
Main Events’ CEO Kathy Duva said, “We are very excited about working with Vaughn. He stumbled in his past but so have many others. The important thing is that he is motivated and ready to move forward. We are so grateful to have this opportunity to debut him on the Mohegan Sun’s Rising Stars Boxing Series. America loves a comeback story!”
