VIDEO | Bare-knuckle boxing champion Bobby Gunn improves record to 71-0

April 6, 2016 2:16 am by Russell Ess

Undefeated bare-knuckle boxing champion Bobby Gunn is the first champion crowned in over 120 years. Sporting a 71-0 record, Gunn is looking to bring bare-knuckle boxing out from the underground and into the mainstream. However, most boxing commissions have labeled the bare-knuckle brawl too barbaric and dangerous.

Gunn was able to be a part of one bout in the public eye in 2014, which took place on an Arizona Indian reservation. According to Men’s Journal, the team expected about 50,000 to live-stream the online pay-per-view event but were overwhelmed when over a million tuned in to watch causing the payment system to crash.

Men’s Journal also reports Bare Knuckle Fighting plans to hold a sanctioned bout in May, at an Indian reservation in the Florida Everglades. Gunn is looking to headline the event and bring more awareness to his sport by getting a fight and a payday with Kimbo Slice, which would undoubtedly get the attention of a lot of curious viewers. Gunn’s opponent has yet to be named.
