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 and from thereon he boxed mainly on the outside. Although Brown occasionally hurt Bradley he was too slow to take advantage and the latter was eventually content to run down the clock.
