Professional boxing careerEdit

Gordon became a professional boxer in 1977. He faced undefeated heavyweight prospect Gerry Cooney in 1978 but lost via a fourth-round disqualification. In 1981 he beat aging contender Yaqui Lopez for the North American Boxing Federation cruiserweight title. The next year he won the Lineal and WBC cruiserweight titles with a technical knockout victory over Carlos De León.[1] He defended the belt once and also won a heavyweight bout against future titlist Trevor Berbick before losing his cruiserweight title in 1983 in a rematch with De Leon. He retired after the loss but had a brief comeback in 1987 but was knocked out in the first round by Dwain Bonds.
