Spinks is the son of former Heavyweight Champion Leon Spinks. At one time, Leon Spinks was managed by Emanuel Steward and trained at the Kronk Gym.
K9 Won with a Devastating Knockout in the fifth round. He previously appeared on the hit reality TV show, "The Contender".
Over the past 30 years Legendary Boxing Icon, Emanuel Steward has trained and managed more than 41 World Champions, including the current World Heavyweight Champion, "Wladimir Klitschko", WBA Jr. Middleweight World Champion "Miguel Cotto" and Irish Middleweight Contender "Andy Lee".
"K9 is the first of what I expect to be a new generation of home-grown world champions," said Steward after the fight. "Soon I expect Dominique Dalton to become our next word champion."
K9 trained nine months for this fight. Although the fight was postponed four different times, that did not discourage him. He continued to show up at the Kronk Gym every day to prepare for this opportunity to be crowned IBF Jr. Middleweight World Champion. Trainer Javan "Sugar" Hill has been working closely with him.
Focused and determined in the ring, Bundrage also believes in giving back to the community.
"He would come to the gym and mentor members of the Kronk Amateur Boxing Team by training and sharing his knowledge with our youngsters." Says Keith Lee, Kronk Trainer.
