On April 7 at the Landers Center in Southaven, Mississippi, seven-time champion and future Hall of Famer James “Lights Out” Toney (73-7-3, 44 KOs) received a five-round workout against Bobby “The Celtic Warrior” Gunn (21-4-1, 18 KOs) during which he was only lightly tested. Toney, at 43 years old, sported a softened midsection (he weighed in at 248 pounds) but displayed still-sharp reflexes and head movement as he stalked the younger Gunn and relied upon his slickness and considerable experience to avoid absorbing shots.

Things heated up Wednesday during a press conference for James Toney and Bobby Gunn’s upcoming April 7, 2012, IBA Heavyweight Title Fight at the Landers Center in Southaven, MS.

The tension began shortly after the first mention of Bobby Gunn as the Bare Knuckle Champion–at which Toney laughed loudly. (Gunn has been inactive from the squared circle since his title fight against Tomasz Adamek in September of 2009, a fight he lost due to a premature stoppage.
