FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Wilmington, DE (December 2, 2016) David Feldman Promotions will announce that former four-division champ and Boxing Legend Roy Jones, Jr. will square off against former world title challenger, and Bare-Knuckle Legend Bobby Gunn on Friday, February 17th 2017 for the Vacant WBF World Cruiserweight Championship.

The fight will be announced at the official press conference on Tuesday, December 6, 2016 at 2 PM at the Chase Center on the Riverfront, 815 Justison St, Wilmington, DE 19801.

In attendance will be Roy Jones, Jr., Bobby Gunn, Promoter David Feldman, WBF Representative James Gibbs, undercard fighters Joe Tiberi, Henry Stewart, and more.

During his twenty-six year professional career, Jones Jr. (64-9, 46 KOs) has secured world titles in four different weight categories – Middleweight, Super Middleweight, Light Heavyweight and Heavyweight – and is the only boxer in history to start his career as a Light Middleweight and then go on to win a Heavyweight Championship.

In winning the WBA Heavyweight title by beating John Ruiz by unanimous decision in March 2003, Jones Jr. made history by becoming the first former middleweight champion to win a heavyweight title in 106 years.

Jones Jr. has victories over former world champions Bernard Hopkins, Antonio Tarver, Vinny Panzienza, James Toney, Mike McCallum, Virgil Hill, Felix Trinidad and John Ruiz.

Jones Jr. said of the bout, “I know Bobby Gunn is coming to bring it. He’s a hard-nose, tough fighter that comes right at you, but I’m going to show him why I’m one of the best that ever did it and he doesn’t belong in the ring with me.“

On February 17, Jones Jr’s opponent will be the former IBA Cruiserweight World Champion and the current Bare Knuckle Heavyweight Champion, Bobby “The Celtic Warrior” Gunn.

Gunn, internationally known for being a Bare-Knuckle legend, will put the gloves back on to battle ring legend Roy Jones, Jr.

Like Jones Jr, Gunn has a fearsome record in gloved boxing – 21 wins (18 KO) 6 losses, one draw, and one no-contest – and an even more impressive undefeated Bare Knuckle record of 72-0 with 72 KO).

Gunn has been in the ring with top fighters Enzo Maccarinelli, Glen Johnson, Tomasz Adamek, and James Toney, so he is no stranger to sharing the ring with boxing’s elite. Gunn said of his upcoming clash with Jones Jr, “It’s an honor to share the ring with a legend like Roy Jones. I’ve been chasing him for a few years now, and on February 17, I will catch him.”

World Boxing Foundation’s North American Vice President James Gibbs said of the upcoming championship bout, “Roy Jones, Jr is a living legend and we are honored to have him fighting for our Cruiserweight Title against a warrior like Bobby Gunn. We are looking forward to this bout.”

The undercard for this championship match will feature popular Delawarean Joe Tiberi (13-2, 6KO), Canada’s Henry Stewart (1-0, 1KO), as well as more to be announced.

Roy Jones, Jr. vs Bobby Gunn, for the WBF World Cruiserweight Championship, on Friday, February 17, 2017 and will be aired live on PPV.

Tickets will range from $75 – $300 and can be purchased by calling (484) 935-3378.

FINAL PELTZ BOXING CARD OF 2016 ON DEC. 2 FALLS ON 38TH ANNIVERSARY OF COMPANY’S FIRST WORLD CHAMPION

FINAL PELTZ BOXING CARD OF 2016 ON DEC. 2 FALLS ON 38TH ANNIVERSARY
OF COMPANY’S FIRST WORLD CHAMPION!!!

Philly Fight Night – Watch LIVE on GFL – http://www.gfl.tv/event/gofightlive/Fight/Boxing/Philly-Fight-Night-Tevin-Farmer-vs-Dardan-Zenunaj/3530

Philadelphia, PA—When Tevin Farmer and Dardan Zenunaj square off Friday, Dec. 2, at the 2300 Arena, it will mark the 38th anniversary of Peltz Boxing’s first world champion.
The title was brought home by Marvin Johnson, of Indianapolis, IN, who knocked out Mate Parlov, of Yugoslavia, to win the World Boxing Council (WBC) light-heavyweight title in Marsala, Sicily.
Johnson went on to become the first three-time world light-heavyweight champion, winning the World Boxing Association (WBA) belt in 1979 by knocking out Victor Galindez, of Argentina, in New Orleans, and finally the WBA crown again in 1986 when he stopped Leslie Stewart, of Trinidad, in Indianapolis.
“Marvin Johnson had a simple philosophy about boxing,” Peltz recalled Keith Jackson, of ABC-TV, once saying on a broadcast:  “When the bell rings, you start fighting.”
Peltz believes Johnson deserves to be on the ballot for the International Boxing Hall of Fame in Canastota, NY.
“It’s a travesty that he’s not even on the ballot,” Peltz said.  “He was 43-6, 35 K0s, and his two fights with Saad Muhammad are all-time classics.  Five of his six losses were to world champions (Saad twice, Eddie Mustafa Muhammad, Michael Spinks and Stewart in a rematch) and the decision loss in Serbia to contender Lottie Mwale, of Zambia, was questionable.”
Though he is not Tevin Farmer’s promoter, Peltz also sees a bright future for the junior lightweight from Philadelphia.
“I spent some time recently with Tevin in Monte Carlo when Jason Sosa was defending his WBA junior lightweight title,” Peltz said.  “Tevin is confident of his ability without being cocky.  He believes there is no one in the world at 130 pounds, including Vasyl Lomachenko, who can beat him and that’s a good way for any fighter to feel.  Lou DiBella (promoter) has a real solid fighter on his hands.  The problem will be getting one of the champs to fight him.”
First Farmer has to defeat Zenunaj, who is 12-2, 9 K0s, and comes here with a nice win over previously unbeaten Bryant Cruz, of New York, who was 16-0 at the time.
Zenunaj is a tough, walk-in styled fighter who can get rough on the inside.  He may not be able to match Farmer’s quickness, so he will have to attack the body and rough things up on the inside.
Farmer cannot afford to look past Friday if he wants to be another world champion from Philadelphia in 2017.

ABOUT  DECEMBER 2

The Farmer-Zenunaj match tops the Philly Fight Night card at the 2300 Arena, located at 2300 South Swanson Street in South Philadelphia (between Ritner & Porter, Front and 2nd Streets).  The Dec. 2 card is sponsored by Parx Casino and Coors Light.  Doors open at 6 pm; first of eight fights at 7pm.  Tickets are $40, $50 and $75 and can be purchased by calling Peltz Boxing (215-765-0922) and 2300 Arena (267-273-0945).  Tickets also can be purchased online at www.2300arena.com.  The Dec. 2 card is promoted by Peltz Boxing, DiBella Entertainment, BAM Boxing and Joe Hand Promotions.
