Gore’s next fight officially marks his professional boxing debut. The 38-year-old fought former NBA star Deron Williams in a four-round bout last December on the undercard of the Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley 2 event. Gore vs. Williams was initially scheduled as a pro fight, but it was changed to an exhibition bout the day before. Williams beat Gore in a split decision.

Williams later stated that he wouldn’t be fighting again. However, Gore showed interest in an in-ring return and left open the possibility of Williams rematch.

Gore is a 15-year NFL veteran who was a star running back with the San Francisco 49ers from 2005-2014. He has not taken a snap since 2020 and he officially announced his retirement this past Sunday, stating that he plans to end his career by signing a one-day contract with the 49ers.
