I know I should not be so naive but how the hell did Gunn, after getting battered in 1 round, go on to have not only another shot at a title but two consecutive fights for a title (if you count the IBU) both of which ended in early retirement...Is he very well connected because he hardly looks like a particularly exciting fighter?

Can anyone come up with other equally unqualified contenders who had several shots at a title?
it is a sad reality of Boxing, and boxing at it's worst for that matter, both in politics and a fighters lack of ability. Sadly more common today than ever with so many fighters vying for titles and yet champions and fighters not fighting as much as they should; well then someone has got to be an opponent for a champ.

or maybe he was just better than the great many fighters of the past!
