Gunn Stops Morrow in 5

Behind a loud and energetic hometown crowd, Bobby “The Celtic Warrior” Gunn improved to 19-3-1 (16 KO’s) after stopping game veteran James Morrow 11-11-1 (7 KO’s) in the fifth round at the Bernie Robbins Stadium in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Gunn blitzed Morrow with powerful jabs, as well as an arsenal of heavy shots, dropping him in the second round following a vicious left hook to the body. After the knockdown, Gunn proceeded to land powerful blows on Morrow while avoiding most of his return shots..

After Gunn continually tagged, as well as backed up his opponent, Morrow’s corner threw in the towel at 1:17 of the fifth round, as their fighter had taken too many clean punches. With the victory, Gunn earns the IBC International and WBF Americas cruiserweight titles as well as hope for a big fight in the near future.

“I am happy with my performance and was having fun in there”, said Gunn, who was a former IBA world cruiserweight champion.

“I was working on things that my new trainer (Joe Rivera) and I have been going over in the gym. Even though James Morrow wasn’t my original opponent, I still respected him because he is a veteran, as I take no one lightly. James is a nice, gutsy kid and I wish him the best”, said the new IBC International and WBF Americas cruiserweight kingpin.

“I owe special thanks my Attorney George Kokkalenios, as he worked extremely hard to keep this fight together. I am happy to have a great new team together, as many of my past associates turned out to be unfaithful. I must also thank the Feldman brothers for giving me the opportunity to headline their show. They treated me very well and I look forward to working with them in the future. Finally, I want to congratulate my friend Vai Sikahema on his great performance.” said The Celtic Warrior.

Gunn’s next fight will be announced shortly and all media inquires can be sent to Knockoutpublcity@Aol.com. Bobby’s fans can contact him at Myspace.com/TeamGunn.
