Hackensack, NJ (August 12, 2014) – 18-year-old Bobby Gunn Jr. won the WBU Youth Welterweight belt with an impressive six round unanimous decision over veteran Sean Lockhart last Saturday evening at the North Hall at Eastern Market in Washington, DC.
Fighting in his first six rounder and against an opponent with a significant advantage in experience, Gunn Jr. was in control from bell to bell. The Hackensack, NJ native, who previously scored all first round knockouts, landed crisp shots to both the body and head of Lockhart. Gunn Jr. decked his foe in the fourth but Lockhart, who’s battled more than 10 unbeaten opponents, finished the bout on his feet.
Scores were 60-53 on all three cards.
“I’m really excited I went the 6 rounds got experience under my belt,” said the humble prospect. “(This) proved I’m not just a one round fighter and I felt like I showed my boxing ability. Winning the title was the best feeling in the world. I’ve worked really hard this year and it’s really a dream come true and God willing the first of many to come. I feel excellent I could fight again right now!”
