LOS ANGELES (SEPTEMBER 19, 2023)–Wise Owl Boxing Management has signed former world title challenger Brandon Adams.
Adams of Los Angeles has a record of 23-3 with 15 knockouts. The 34-year-old Adams is a distinguished fighter in the junior middleweight and middleweight divisions.
“I’m very excited about the opportunity to manage Brandon. Brandon is an elite fighter at the pinnacle of his career and his time is now. He’s hungry and motivated and has a new team behind him to push him to the next level. He’s proven himself as a force to be reckoned with and has shared the ring with some of the very best fighters in the world. He showed that he is willing to fight anybody as he jumped in there with Charlo at middleweight on four week’s notice. His charismatic personality shines inside and outside of the ring. I can’t wait to see him in action where he can showcase his skills and show the world who he is,” said Mark Habibi of Wise Owl Management
“”I am super excited to be working with Mark and Wise Owl Boxing. This is an opportunity to start fresh and get straight to work. I am looking forward to seeing what is out there for me,” said Adams.
Adams began boxing at the age of 18 and had a very brief amateur career that saw him go 4-2.
Adams won his first 12 bouts before entering the Boxcino Tournament. Adams defeated distinguished fighters Daniel Edouard (23-4-2) and Raymond Gatica (14-2) before losing to Willie Monroe Jr. in the final.
The very next year, Adams dropped down to junior middleweight and made it to the finals of that tournament with wins over Alex Perez (18-1) and Vito Gasparyan (15-3-5).
The third time was the charm as Adams then starred on The Contender series as he was crowned champion as he defeated Tyrone Brunson (26-6-2), Ievgen Khytrov (17-1), Eric Walker (17-1) and 10-round beatdown of Shane Mosley Jr. (13-2) in the final.
That win parlayed Adams to a shot at WBC Middleweight champion Jermall Charlo.
After his spirited effort against Charlo on June 29, 2019, Adams came back with two impressive wins as he stopped Sanny Duversonne (11-2-2) in two rounds, and then on March 4, 2021, Adams stopped undefeated knockout artist Serhii Bohachuk in Puerto Rico.
