ShoBox photos: J'Leon Love dominates, Chris Pearson learns, and Badou Jack gets stopped in one

It was an up-and-down night for Mayweather Promotions, as J'Leon Love and Chris Pearson came out winners on ShoBox, while Badou Jack was flattened by Derek Edwards.

Last night on ShoBox: The New Generation, The Money Team went 2-1, though not without a close call in one of their team's wins. In the main event, J'Leon Love hammered his way to a 10th round stoppage over a game but overmatched Vladine Biosse, while Badou Jack was shocked in one round by veteran Derek Edwards, and Chris Pearson escaped with a split decision win over Lanardo Tyner in the opener.

Love (17-0, 10 KO) had Biosse (15-3-2, 7 KO) in trouble early, but didn't get greedy for a stoppage at any point, perhaps after watching "teammate" Jack wiped out in the fight before. The Michigan fighter kept a pretty steady pace and dominated the fight, with referee Benjy Esteves stepping in in the final round.

"We worked really hard in camp and I wanted to be able to take advantage of that work and use all my punches. I was hitting him with great combinations, going downstairs and upstairs," Love said afterward. "He was a tough guy, but I knew eventually with the shots I was throwing I would get him out of there. A late stoppage is good."

Jack (16-1-1, 9 KO) was iced in the first minute against Edwards (27-3-1, 14 KO), a shocker upset that happened mostly due to a single beautiful right hand that landed flush on Jack's chin, coming in over top of a jab. Edwards timed the shot wonderfully, put Jack down, and Badou just couldn't get his legs back, going down moments later and stopped just 1:01 into the contest.

Pearson (11-0, 9 KO) tasted canvas against Tyner (31-9-2, 20 KO), but overall passed his first real test pretty well. There was an argument for a Tyner win, and the two 78-73 scores for Pearson seemed fairly wide, but this was no cream puff opponent, either. Tyner's been around and knows what he's doing in there. It was a pretty real step up for Pearson, and he came out of it with the win, and a learning experience for sure.
