Randall Bailey: Forced out of original date through injury

Randall Bailey: Forced out of original date through injury

Randall Bailey will defend his IBF welterweight title against Devon Alexander at the new Barclays Center in New York on October 20.

The fight has been added to the huge show after Bailey was forced to withdraw from the original fight on September 8 with a back injury.

"We are thrilled to not only be re-announcing this hard-hitting matchup, but also to be able to add it to the already powerful night of boxing planned for Barclays Center on October 20," said Oscar De La Hoya, president of Golden Boy Promotions.

"With four world championship fights and a great undercard to kick off a new era of boxing in Brooklyn, this show is going to be like the Super Bowl of boxing and definitely will be a night to remember."

The winner of Bailey-Alexander should make his next defence against Kell Brook provided the Briton overcomes Hector Saldivia on October 20.

The opening night at the new venue sees Danny Garcia defend his WBC and WBA light-welterweight titles against Erik Morales while Paulie Malignaggi defends his 'regular' WBA welterweight strap against Pablo Cano.

The fourth title fight sees Hassan N'Dam N'Jikam and Peter Quillin (both 27-0) clash for the WBO middleweight belt.
