With less than two weeks separating Bobby “The Celtic Warrior” Gunn from touching gloves with James “Lights Out” Toney in what has the potential to make for the one of the most exciting heavyweight matchups in some time, trash talking, politics and everything else that builds up a great fight has little bearing now.

When Gunn and Toney go to battle April 7 for the IBA Heavyweight Title, all that will matter that night is who the better fighter is, and who emerges as the IBA Heavyweight champion.  Their past victories, championships and accolades mean nothing once the bell sounds to commence the first round.

IBA HEAVY TITLE FIGHT

Former IBA Cruiserweight Champion Bobby “The Celtic Warrior” will be fighting current IBA World Heavyweight Champion James “Lights Out” Toney April 7 in a 12-round fight at the Landers Center in Southaven, MS.

Gunn (21-4, 18 KO) 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.  Since, Gunn has stepped away from the gloved sport and has focused on the reemergence of bare knuckle boxing.

Last summer Gunn claimed the World Heavyweight BKB Title when he defeated Richard Stewart by way of KO in the third round of the first sanctioned BKB fight in 123 years.  Continue reading
