Johnson-Gunn slashed to eight rounds. No WBU title on the line.

By Kurt Wolfheimer at ringside

Tonight’s cruiserweight clash between 44-year-old former world champion Glen “The Road Warrior” Johnson (52-18-2, 36 KOs) and 39-year-old Bobby “The Celtic Warrior” (21-5-1, 18 KOs) at the Sands Casino in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, has apparently been cut from a twelve-round bout to an eight-rounder by the Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission. It also looks like the WBU cruiserweight championship will no longer be on the line.

In addition, the plug was pulled on a live stream of the card as the venue would not allow a live broadcast.
