Once again fighting in front of an HBO Boxing audience, however, he was defeated in what many saw as a surprise by Edwin Rosario, who knocked him out in two rounds at Miami. After this loss, Bramble never regained his status as a top lightweight. He fought on, and met some future or former world champions such as Freddie Pendleton, Charles Murray, James "Buddy" McGirt, Roger Mayweather, Rafael Ruelas and Kostya Tszyu, as well as world title challengers like Wilfredo Rivera, Oba Carr and Darryl Tyson.

Furthermore, talks about a super-fight between Mancini and IBF world Jr. Welterweight champion Aaron Pryor were under way. Nevertheless, Bramble cut Mancini in round one and went on to become the WBA world Lightweight champion by a fourteenth round knockout in Buffalo, New York.
