Going into the bout both men were unbeaten with Bundrage having compiled an impressive record of 21-0 (13) whilst Powell's record stood at 15-0 (9). Someone's 0 had to go though few watching the bout would have expected someone's 0 to go this quickly or in quite this way.
Since the bout Bundrage has appeared as a contestant on the television series “The Contender” and is currently the IBF Light Middleweight champion of the world with an impressive record of 31-4-0-1 (18). He has also defeated Powell in a rematch in his only title defence so far (though he is currently preparing to face Cory Spinks in another title defence). With his title and easy to like personality he has since earned himself a cult reputation amongst boxing fans.
Powell on the other hands has really failed to live up to expectation and currently has a record of 26-4 (15) having, as we've mentioned, lost a rematch to Bundrage and has actually lost his last 2 bouts. Powell is currently preparing for a bout with the highly ranked Gabriel Rosado with the WBO Inter-Continental Light Middleweight title up for grabs for the winner. A win against Rosado will help Powell remain relevant in the boxing world, however a loss will likely see the curtains pulled on his career.
