Devon Alexander has claimed that he has received a lot of support from UK fans who want to see him beat Amir Khan when the two fight in Las Vegas on Saturday.

Alexander, speaking at a press conference ahead of their Welterwight showdown at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino, said he has been taken aback by the number of UK fans who want to see him win, saying, "A lot of UK fans want to see me beat Khan for some reason".

Saturday's clash will be British boxer Khan's first fight since defeating veteran American Luis Collazo in his welterweight debut in May.
