Boxing News

Future Hall of Fame/multiple world champion James ''Lights Out'' Toney and current world champion bare knuckle champion Bobby Gunn gave the press and of all those who attended quite a show today in Southaven, MS.  Toney Vs. Gunn is all set for April 7th at the Landers Center. Prize Fight Promotions has put together an action packed card and if today's press conference is anything like the fight will be, you won't want to miss it.

Bobby Gunn didn't like the way James Toney was laughing while his trainer was at the podium.  Toney was laughing and rolling his eyes at Team Gunn while they were telling the press and the crowd in attendance of Gunn's accomplishments as a prize fighter.  Gunn stood up and approached Toney, at which times the two men started shouting back and forth.  Toney in typical ''Lights Out'' fashion fired back, then removed his jacket and glasses.  Gunn then fired back challenging Toney to a scrap outside in the parking lot.  The two men had to be separated  by multiple people.  Toney walked off of the stage and walked down the hallway.  Huge bangs and crash sounds could be heard as he exited.
