Check out my thoughts on Saturday night’s 154-pound title tripleheader.


Erislandy Lara, Jermell Charlo, and Jarrett Hurd all defended their titles and hopefully will fight each other to unify titles.


On the horizon are Julian Williams, Demetrius Andrade (if a deal to come back to 154 is enticing enough), Vanes Martirosyan, Kanat Islam, Tony Harrison, K9 Bundrage, and Miguel Cotto if he chooses to fight on.

Wilmington, DE (February 8, 2017)–Bare Knuckle Boxing Legend Bobby Gunn is ready for his opportunity of a lifetime, when he takes on all-time great Roy Jones, Jr in a bout scheduled for 12 rounds for the WBF Cruiserweight title that will take place on Friday night, February 17th at The Chase Center in Wilmington, Delaware.  The bout can be seen LIVE ON PAY-PER-VIEW.


Gunn of Hackensack, New Jersey has been preparing for this fight, and is ready for the biggest fight of his career.  ”


I am fighting an all-time great, and styles make fights.  It will be a hell of a fight,” said Gunn.


Gunn wanted to raise the stakes for the fight, but he doesn’t think that Jones has the confidence that he will come out victorious.


“I laid it out to him for a winner-take-all bout.  I am a puncher, so I know I will win this fight.”


This will be Gunn’s 1st bout in 38 months, but the Bare-Knuckle Legend has been active fighting on the Bare-Knuckle circuit, and has a perfect record of 72-0 with 72 knockouts in those bouts.


“People can look, and think that I haven’t been active, but a fight is a fight and I have been fighting the Bare-Knuckle fights.  Fighting is Fighting.  The only difference in those fights is that the gloves protect the hands.  Despite what it says on my boxing record, I have always been active.  But the time out of the ring plus being against Roy Jones, Jr, the fans will see a different Bobby Gunn.” Continue reading
