Heyman Hopes for Rematch

After a split decision loss on May 7 to Mike Alderete, Max Heyman is hoping for a rematch.

Heyman told New Mexico Boxing, “I just want a rematch and think it will happen. I might not like the man, but Mike did come to fight. I appreciate that, and admire that. I take nothing away from him – he brought the fight to me and that’s awesome. Let’s do it again.”

There is still bad blood between Heyman and Alderete. Before the fight, they had thrown verbal jabs at each other and the talk hasn't stopped even though the match took place three weeks ago.

Heyman (23-11-4, 13 KOs) broke his left hand in the fight. He knocked Alderete (7-4-2, 3 KOs) down in the first round, but then suddenly became less aggressive and only took the decision on one judge's card.
