In an IBF eliminator for the number two ranking in the super middleweight division, Jesse Brinkley (35-5, 23 KOs)
scored a gutsy twelve round unanimous decision over Curtis “Showtime” Stevens (21-3, 15 KOs) on Friday night at the Grand Sierra Resort and Casino in Reno, Nevada. Stevens, who had promised an early KO, set the tone by landing some good left hooks in round one. Brinkley, a participant in the The Contender I reality television show, weathered the storm, however, and proceeded to break down Stevens. Stevens finally wilted under the Brinkley barrage and went down at the end of round six. The big-punching Stevens looked to score a KO as the bout progressed, but Brinkley scored another knockdown in the twelfth to win going away by scores of 117-109, 118-108, 119-107.
