#LastNight Congrats to new WBO NABO Jr. Lightweight Female Champion Tiara Brown, who defeated Angel Gladney via 6th-round TKO at the Entertainment and Sports Arena, Washington.

Brown was in complete control in the contest. She landed shots from outside and inside. Gladney tried to compete from the outside, then she tried to work inside on Brown. Neither plan worked due to Brown’s accurate output. Brown didn’t knock Gladney down but she battered her enough to force Kenny Chevalier to stop the contest at 34 seconds of the sixth round.

Brown remains undefeated at 8-0, six KO’s. Gladney is 10-15-1, six KO’s.

Below you can watch the boxing card. Brown-Gladney is the co-main event:

WBO junior welterweight champion Timothy Bradley is the only boxer to defeat Lamont Peterson in the ring, by decision, two years ago. On Saturday night in Washington, DC, Peterson challenges Bradley’s main rival, WBA/IBF 140-pound champion Amir Khan. Although Peterson has had some good performances since losing to Bradley, Khan is the overwhelming favorite to win. Even Bradley himself is picking Khan to win and gives the British the edge with his faster hands. Bradley picks Khan by decision, but says a knockout win will erase any doubts about Khan’s status as an elite fighter.

“His movement and quickness and jab will give him problems,” Bradley told The Desert Sun. “Peterson will come and make it a hell of a fight and he has a chance for an upset, but Khan is polished. Peterson will have a good chance, but I favor Khan because he’s quicker and he throws his combinations and he gets in and out. That’s what I did when I fought Peterson. I’d be surprised if he stopped Peterson. If he stops him, then he’s the real deal. But [Peterson is] tough and this is his second opportunity to fight on the big stage for a world title. And it is in his back yard. He will be motivated to put on a good show and fight hard.”
