1996-08-30 [[Lonnie Bradley]] w pts 12 [[Simon Brown]], Municipal Stadium, Reading, Pennsylvania, USA - WBO. Referee: Frank Cappuccino. Scorecards: 117-111, 117-113, 117-111. With Brown (157¾) well past his best it was not too difficult a fight for the unbeaten champion and he should have done better. After being cut over the left eye in the fourth following some dangerous headwork by Brown, Bradley (159¾) was more wary, boxing mainly on the outside from there on in. Although Bradley was occasionally hurt by Brown, with the latter being too slow to take advantage he was eventually content to run down the clock.
