Bout Summary

In Round 4, a big right hand hurt Guerrero and put him on the defensive against the ropes. A followup barrage put Guerrero down and halfway out of the ring. He did make it to his feet and action continued. As Brewer pressed the action, Guerrero stumbled forward and went down following a short right uppercut as the two were tangled together. At that, the referee immediately waved an end to the bout.

Quotes

"A lot of people don't realize that just because your forty doesn't mean that you don't work hard... I knew I was going to catch him with my right uppercut... When I hit this kid I was hurting him. I knew I was hurting him... It feels better tonight than when I won on The Contender." - Brewer in the post fight interview
