WBA middleweight champion Rob “Bravo” Brant (25-1, 17 KO’s) thrilled his hometown crowd with a KO 11 over previously undefeated Khasan Baysangurov (17-1, 7 KO’s) in his first title defense on Friday night at the Grand Casino Hinckley in Hinckley, Minnesota. Brant is a busy, volume punching, fan-friendly fighter. After the bout there was talk of a rematch in Japan with Ryota Murata, perhaps an Australian gig against Jeff Horn or the winner of Canelo Alvarez vs. Daniel Jacobs. There are a lot of options for the likeable, Minnesota-born, Texas-residing champion.
