IBA World Champion Bobby Gunn with Nashville’s Finest…Engine #33

IBA Champion Bobby Gunn ‘Hits” Nashville

Nashville, TN (APR 4) On the heels of his upcoming WBO Cruiserweight Title fight in Cardiff, Wales, IBA Cruiserweight World Champion Bobby Gunn recently paid a visit to Nashville, Tennessee. Having fought four of his last five fights in Middle Tennessee, Bobby Gunn has developed a rather extended fan base here and it was quite obvious by the amount of fan support and excitement the Champ generated wherever he went. While he was in town on official business for a meeting with Team Gunn’s physician Dr. David Florence, he did take time out of his busy schedule to visit with members of the Nashville Fire Department Engine #33 and with members of the staff at United Regional Medical Center in Manchester, TN.
Firefighter/Paramedic Eric McEwen of the Nashville Fire Department helps IBA Champion Bobby Gunn suit-up for a different kind of fight!

“Bobby looks fantastic and he is in the best shape of his life for this WBO Title opportunity. He is as strong as a bull and is as powerful as a tank. His conditioning is superb and his speed is as quick as a cat! He is both physically and mentally ready for this challenge on April 7th and Team Gunn is poised to electrify the boxing world. Bobby has had a tremendous training camp and he has worked day and night in preparation for this, the most important fight of his career. He is fully prepared and absolutely expects to take Maccarinelli’s WBO Title from him when they clash in the ring next Saturday night. I have known Bobby for 16 years and I have never seen the man so confident and motivated. Enzo Maccarinelli will be walking into a buzz-saw on April 7th and I don’t think he can last 3 rounds with Bobby.” “Joe Mack” McEwen, Team Gunn
