    He was released today, within the last couple of hours.

    Still reads like Nunn was made an example off in some ways.

    Didn’t even know he was in prison. Time to google it...

    Don’t know the details obviously but that sounds a hefty sentence....

    I was a fan of his when he came onto the scene over here beating Tate, who had beaten our Sibson and our Liverpool born Micheal Jackson lookalike Micheal olajade.

    Remember that bomb he threw against Kalambay?

    I had high hopes for him until Toney knocked him out.

    Nunn won a title at supermiddle but then drugs and age got to him. Nunn could have achieved so much more.

    Yeah I think Nunn was with King and that was an option for Benn. That would have been a tough fight for Nigel.

    He was made an example of. He paid dearly--twice the sentence of what it should have been. And far more than a rapist would have gotten.

    When you think of Nunn, you think of words like articulate, affable, good looking, tall, left-handed, stylist, speed, sharp reflexes, fantastic foot movement, great technique, and solid defensive skills. He also had an unappreciated ability to take out his opponents with power punching and the record bears this out. He was a rangy and slick southpaw who gave his opponents fits and was a master of the slip and slide move. His jab was a punishing jackhammer. These were his trademarks in the ring and provided great entertainment. Unfortunately, his career defining fight ended by a sudden and brutal knockout at the hands of James Toney in a fight that affirmed Toney’s nickname “Lights Out.”
