Gore scored a brutal fourth round knockout

The future NFL Hall of Fame inductee was able to celebrate in style, after his brutal knockout left his opponent face planting onto the canvas.

While the bout was Gore’s first in a professional capacity, boxing fans may recognise him from the undercard of Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley II.

It was a battle of the sports as American football’s Gore took on basketball’s Deron Williams, with the ex-NBA star prevailing in a messy contest.

The former San Francisco 49er is third on the list of all-time rushing yards in NFL history, accumulating exactly 16,000 yards.

After spells with the Indianapolis Colts, Miami Dolphins, Buffalo Bills and New York Jets, injury put an end to an illustrious career.

Gore eventually signed a one day deal to sign for his beloved 49ers, so he could retire in California.

With his NFL career drawing to a close in 2021, Gore was lured into an exhibition outing in the squared circle, where he featured on the undercard for the second edition of Paul vs Woodley.
