Wayne Alexander's hopes of looking impressive in his 1st defense of his IBO MW title went up in smoke when Steven Bendall knocked him out in the 12th with a vicious right hook. Wayne had dropped Steve earlier in the fight but as the rounds wore on, Bendall dropped Wayne 2 times before ending matters in the 12th. Steve was up on 2 of the 3 cards: 104-102, 103-102, 102-103 & was up in PL 222 to 209.

Bendall lost his WBC MW bid earlier this year when Renan St. Juste dropped Steve 3 times on his way to an easy UD. Bendall had knocked out Hassan N'Dam N'Jikam in France to win the EBU MW belt to earn his WBC MW shot.

With the loss, Wayne's plans for a fight with one of the 4 major MW champs in 2013 ended - at least for now.
