SJ - May 15, 2022

Former NFL running back Frank Gore made his professional boxing debut on Saturday night at Gamebred Boxing 1 in Biloxi, Miss.  He won the fight via a faceplant knockout of his opponent Yaya Olorunsola.

Video of the fourth-round knockout shows Gore deliver a big overhand right that sends Olorunsola to another dimension.  The fight was Gore's first pro fight, but it wasn’t his first time in the ring.

He lost an exhibition bout against former NBA player Deron Williams as part of the Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley 2 card in December.

Knocking a guy out during a boxing match isn't a bad way to celebrate your 39th birthday.
