In what was a poor fight, the champion was unable to finish Beasley (159) off despite having him down in the seventh and eighth from smashing rights to the head and chasing him all night. It was clear that Beasley was only interested in going the distance and he continued to back-pedal as Bradley (160) tried to take him out with one punch. At times Bradley gave up the chase as the fight drifted along to the final bell, having done his reputation no good at all.
