9 March 2009 – Press Release
After blasting out Brad Gregory to win the WBA-NABA Cruiserweight title last week, Bobby The Celtic Warrior Gunn not only intends on fighting the best in his division but also displaying his talents all across the world.
Between my pro and amateur career, I have fought in many great places, said Gunn, who also hold this WBC-USNBC Cruiserweight crown.
Many of my international experiences are still to this day some of my most memorable as a fighter. At this point of my career, I want to fight everywhere possible while pleasing fans from all four corners of the globe.
Gunns global goals may in fact become a reality in the near future. Gunn was recently contacted by Irish-based Quinn Promotions. While Gunn was ecstatic about an attractive offer for a February fight in Ireland, he had to handle business in America first.
They flew me over to Ireland to talk about a fight, said Gunn, who boasts a pro record of 21-3-1 with 18 knockouts. As intriguing as it was, I had to defend my WBC belt inside of the US within 90 days in order to advance myself. This turned out to be a beauty in disguise because I captured the NABA title in the process, therefore makes a fight overseas even bigger.
While many fighters have struggled without a promoter or manager, Gunn is ecstatic about the opportunities he has as a free agent.
I just had a conversation earlier today with Quinn Promotions as well as Pascal Collins, who is the brother Irish boxing legend Stevie Collins. They are looking to have me fight in Ireland next month. This would be extremely beneficial for me, my fans and my career.
Specifics about Gunns invasion of Ireland will follow in the near future. Fans can contact Bobby at Myspace.com/TeamGunn.
