WBC #10 middleweight Brandon “Cannon” Adams (22-3, 14 KOs) scored a second round TKO over late sub Sonny Duversonne (11-3-2, 8 KOs) on Thursday night in the parking lot of the Wild Card Boxing Club in Hollywood, California. Adams, winner of Season 5 of The Contender series, rocked Duversonne with a left hook, then landed a series of unanswered punches to get a referee’s stoppage. Time was 1:40.
“My game plan stayed the same from the beginning – to seek and destroy,” said Adams. “I wanted to come out and win and it didn’t matter who was put in front of me.”
