Jermall Charlo dropped veteran Cornelius Bundrage three times en route to a third-round stoppage on Saturday in Mashantucket, Connecticut. The unbeaten junior middleweight contender won the IBF title.

Charlo (22-0, 17 knockouts), THE RING’s No. 7-rated 154 pounder, put Bundrage down twice during the opening round of the PBC on NBC broadcast from the Foxwoods Casino. A right cross produced the first knockdown. A stiff left put the 42-year-old Detroit native down again. Bundrage, who hadn’t fought in nine months, couldn’t get his legs under him or into any kind of rhythm against the 25-year-old Houston resident.

A hook-cross combination put Bundrage, THE RING’s No.-6 rated junior middleweight, down a third time in Round 3 prompting the referee to wave it off.

Also on the PBC on NBC broadcast, light heavyweight prospect Marcus Browne made quick work of Gabriel Campillo (25-8-1, 12 KOs), stopping the shopworn former titleholder in a little over a minute. Brown (16-0, 12 KOs), a 24-year-old Staten Island native and 2012 U.S. Olympian, attacked the body of the 36-year-old southpaw, instantly taking the veteran’s legs away and causing two knockdowns.



Referee Arthur Mercante Jr. did not hesitate in stopping the bout after Campillo’s second knockdown.
