Brandon Adams gave a good boxing exhibition against Shane Mosley Jr. at the Forum in Inglewood, California, and became the fifth season champion of The Contender. The program was broadcast by MGM’s EPIX cable network and allied with the World Boxing Association (WBA).

The native of Los Angeles won via unanimous decision scorecards of 100-90, 100-90 and 99-01 and was proclaimed champion of the competition, which in this edition has a special added thanks to the partnership of the WBA.

In addition to the benefits of winning the prestigious event, Adams will have the opportunity to be ranked among the top 15 middleweights in the pioneer organization, which will give him a much needed boost in the face of having a global opportunity in the short term.

The Contender has been on American television for several years with a couple of its participants, such as Sergio Mora and Cornelius Bundrage, winning world championships after competing in the program. The WBA feels especially happy with the agreement made with The Contender, since it allows young boxers to access great opportunities to earn the black and gold belt.

Adams now has a record of 21 wins, 2 losses and 13 knockouts, while Mosley Jr. has a balance of 11 wins, 3 losses and 8 knockouts.
