WILMINGTON, DE — Roy Jones Jr. scored a dominant eighth-round stoppage over Bobby Gunn last night at the Chase Center.
The 43-year-old Gunn, who came in winless since 2009, was completely overmatched by the 48-year-old Jones’s speed and skill. Jones kept Gunn subdued with snappy jabs, and scored at will with hard rights. Gunn was busted open in the sixth and badly wobbled by a 1-2 in the last minute of the seventh. Although Jones allowed him to finish the round, Gunn’s corner called off the bout before the eighth.
Jones picks up the fringe WBF cruiserweight title and improves his record to 65-9 (47 KOs).
