Nakash Poised to Face Gunn

According to several online sources, the long awaited clash between undefeated cruiserweight Ran Nakash and former challenger Bobby Gunn (21-4-1, 18 KOs) will finally happen sometime in early 2011. The fight could take place as early as January and might be on American television.

Bobby Gunn has been boisterous in calling out Nakash for the past several months. He has blamed Nakash for the fact that the fight has not taken place yet and has declared his confidence in winning the proposed match up. Gunn's fans even created a Facebook group calling out Nakash.

For his part, Nakash has consistently expressed interest in fighting the 36 year old Celtic Warrior. The 25-0 (18 KOs) Nakash fought on the undercard of Gunn's attempt to gain The Ring's cruiserweight championship from Tomasz Adamek during July of 2009. Gunn was stopped in the fourth round and hasn't fought since. Nakash, 32, has fought and won six times since then.

Nakash won his last bout, a 10 round unanimous decision over Victor Barragan last July. That fight was shown on the Comcast Network in the United States. The contest with Gunn, who marks a step up for Nakash, would take place at Harrah's Casino in Chesterfield, Pennsylvania. It would be a 12 round fight.
