Gunn ready to battle James Toney

Following last month’s press conference where Bobby “The Celtic Warrior” Gunn and James “Lights Out” Toney nearly came to blows, Gunn made it clear to Team Toney and to the boxing world that this was going to be a fight that James Toney will never forget.

As today marks one month from the International Boxing Association (IBA) Heavyweight Title, Gunn has expressed that he can’t wait for April 7 to go to war with James Toney.

“Training camp has been going really well,” said Gunn. “I feel great. I am going to be coming into this fight in the best condition of my career, and I can’t wait for the opportunity to battle for the IBA Heavyweight Title.”

In recent weeks Gunn has had his name thrown around the media quite heavily, and not only in regards to his upcoming title fight.

Gunn addressed the growing issue of bullying a few weeks back, and has publicly announced that he will be dedicating this fight against James Toney to all the victims of bullying.

“Bullying has become a disease that is slowly killing innocent kids; although it is a disease, it can be cured,” said Gunn. “People need to be proactive and take a stand against bullying. It isn’t how high you stand on the issue, as long as you take a stand, because if you don’t take a stand for one thing, you will fall for all things.”

Gunn’s fight against Toney is more than for just the IBA Heavyweight Title. The current World Heavyweight BKB Champion, Gunn has the chance to hold both the Heavyweight BKB Title and Heavyweight Boxing Title simultaneously. Additionally, Gunn has the opportunity to do something no other boxer has ever done—stop James Toney.

“I have a great team around me, and I get a ton of support,” said Gunn. “This is what I’ve worked for all my life, and come April 7 the world is going to see a Bobby Gunn that they have never seen before. This is my time.”
