Roy Jones Jr. Dominates, Punishes and Stops Bobby Gunn

Chase Center, Wilmington, Delaware - In his first fight since last June, former four division world champion Roy Jones Jr. (65-9, 47 KOs), 48-years-old, secured a eight round stoppage over Bobby Gunn (21-7-1, 18 KOs) in a cruiserweight contest. Stoppage was marked at 7 seconds of the eight.

Gunn, inactive since December 2013, had lost his last three in a row coming into this contest.

The first round were more or less dominated by Jones, who was controlling Gunn with a quick jab and was landing potshots when the openings were there.

Jones was landing hard shots nearly at will in the fifth. Gunn had little defense and was wide open for every right hand Jones threw.

Jones was showing some of his vintage moves in the sixth. Gunn tried to bully Jones in the round, but he was unable to land anything clean of note.

During the seventh, Gunn's nose was starting to bleed, he continued to show a lack of a real defense and was getting hit with punches that he couldn't avoid. He was stunned by a hard combination, but Jones allowed him to survive without putting him away. When Gunn went back to the corner, his corner would not let him continue any further when the eight round officially started.

During his twenty-seven year professional career, Jones has secured world titles at middleweight, super middleweight, light heavyweight and heavyweight - and is the only boxer in history to start his career as a light middleweight and then go on to win a heavyweight championship.

In winning the WBA Heavyweight title by beating John Ruiz by unanimous decision in March 2003, Jones Jr. made history by becoming the first former middleweight champion to win a heavyweight title in 106 years.

Jones Jr. has victories over former world champions Bernard Hopkins, Antonio Tarver, Vinny Panzienza, James Toney, Mike McCallum, Virgil Hill, Felix Trinidad and John Ruiz.
