Former two-time world super-welterweight title holder Cornelius ‘K9’ Bundrage made a winning return to action sixteen months on from losing his IBF belt to Jermall Charlo.
Having been knocked out in three rounds by Charlo in the first defense of his second reign as champion, Bundrage had been assessing his next move after a sixth career defeat.
Refreshed and with a new desire to compete, the 43 year-old took just two rounds to dispatch of Sergio Gomez at middleweight to move his record to 35-6.
With just nine fights in the last eight years, Bundrage should be relatively fresh compared to other veteran fighters his age as the American plots a new course to a potential third spell as a world ruler.
Bundrage shot to fame on the first edition of ‘The Contender’ Series, eventually losing out to Steve Forbes before overcoming further losses to claim his first world belt against the odds in 2010.
