Gunn on Huck-Nakash

Ran Nakash, who will challenge Marco Huck in Germany on Saturday for the WBO cruiserweight crown, had been pegged to face Bobby Gunn for more than a year. The two had a somewhat public back-and-forth about fighting one another. They even had a date (February 24) and a venue (Harrah's in Chester, Pennsylvania) before the fight fell through.

Gunn said of Nakash accepting the fight with Huck instead of himself, "This is a business and he made a smart decision." Gunn graciously added, "I don’t think Nakash ran away from our fight because he is going to make a lot of money and has an opportunity to fight for a world title against Huck."

But then Gunn took a shot at Nakash. "Either way, he was going to take his first loss the next time he fought, so you can’t blame him." Perhaps, it's just sour grapes from Gunn, who was stopped in the fourth round of his last fight against Tomasz Adamek for The Ring cruiserweight title.
