Known as "The Ambassador," Pettway turned pro in 1984, and won the USBA light middleweight title in 1992 with a points win over Gilbert Baptist. He challenged Gianfranco Rosi for the IBF light middleweight Title in 1994 in a bout that was ruled a sixth round technical draw. Later that year, Pettway got a second shot at Rosi and won via a fourth round KO.In 1995, Pettway defended against Simon Brown, perhaps his best known performance, in which he devastatingly knocked Brown out in round six. After Brown was dropped with a perfect left hook, Brown continued to throw punches in a concussed state.
