The "Gunn" Show - My9 New Jersey

The "Gunn" Show

Posted: Updated:
Whippany, New Jersey (My9NJ) - Like father like son. It looks like Bobby Gunn Jr. is following in the footsteps of his father, current World Bare-Knuckle Heavyweight Champion Bobby Gunn Sr. In fact, this 18 year-old rookie is now ready to showcase his own boxing talents. Gunn Jr.’s professional boxing career is just getting started and it looks like he gets all his fighting skills from his father, making Gunn Sr. extremely proud.

"He was my pride and joy when he was born, I took him everywhere with me and after school I would take him to the gym with me and he grew up in the ring like literally five and six years-old he was at the boxing gym," he said.

While his dad chose to compete in bare-knuckle fights, Gunn Jr. has chosen a different route with his own career, but the memories of his father in the ring are still etched in his mind.

"As I got older, I knew he was at the world class level but when I was younger I was terrified," he said.

Gunn Jr.'s boxing trainer, Dominick Scibetta, thinks that his talent will make him an extremely successful boxer.

"Well he is 2-0 right now, 2 knock outs both within the first minute, you know he's got a bright future, he's a really good fighter," he said.

According to his dad, Gunn Jr.'s nickname is the “Baby Faced Assassin” because he looks so young, but when he gets in the ring and starts fighting, he's so mature and you don't want to mess with him. In fact, anyone fighting Gunn Jr. should look out for his left hook!

Bobby Gunn Jr. will be getting in the ring this Saturday, May 31st, at the Birchwood Manor in Whippany, NJ, the doors open at 6:30 P.M. and the fight starts at 7:30 P.M.!
