- Former NFL running back Frank Gore wins his pro boxing debut
- The former San Francisco 49ers star has committed himself to box
Frank Gore did not fail to deliver in his maiden pro boxing match on Saturday at the Gamebred Boxing event, “Gamebred Boxing 1” in Biloxi, Miss. The 16-year NFL veteran finished Yaya Olorunsola in the fourth round after landing a nasty overhand right that immediately sent his opponent to the canvas.

The best way to spend a birthday
What made Gore’s pro boxing debut victory even more special was that it actually happened on his 39th birthday. On Twitter, the former 49er celebrated his victory and expressed his gratitude to his team.
“Today was a great day!!! Want to thank my team for all the hard work,” Gore wrote.

Gore’s stunning KO win did not only send the crowd into a frenzy but also Gamebred founder, Jorge Masvidal’s manager, Malki Kawa, who was apparently watching the fight at home.

It was only the second time Gore has entered the boxing ring since officially retiring from football earlier this year but he admitted that he has “always loved boxing.” His first bout was an exhibition match against former NBA star Deron Williams in December on the Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley 2 card where he lost via decision.
Now that Gore has proven his devastating knockout power, fans will surely be looking forward to his next fight.
