World Boxing Association (WBA) interim heavyweight champion Trevor Bryan (21-0, 15 KOs) scored an eleventh round TKO over former WBC champion Bermain Stiverne (25-5-1, 21 KOs) on Friday night at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Hollywood, Florida, to win the vacant full WBA heavyweight title. Throughout the night, Bryan kept a steady power jab in Stiverne’s face, while Stiverne had his moments. The end came when Bryan eventually opened in the eleventh round, dropping Stiverne with his right hand twice. Stiverne gamely started, but soon after, the war was ended. 1:26 was the moment.
Bryan will now have to fight WBA recess champion Mahmoud Charr under a time frame not exceeding 120 days.
