Gore made history for the most number of appearances at running back at 241 in 2020 and recorded 16,000 rushing yards in a career that also took in the Indianapolis Colts, Miami Dolphins, Buffalo Bills and New York Jets.

He retired from the sport in June following a one-day deal with the 49ers and has moved into the world of boxing. 

Gore faced former NBA player Deron Williams in an exhibition fight in December last year on the undercard of Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley.

The NFL man was beaten via a split decision at Amalie Arena in Tampa.

However, Gore was victorious in his first professional bout back in May, beating Yaya Olorunsola with a brutal knockout in the fourth round.

In February of 2014, former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice and his then-fiancee (now wife) were arrested after an altercation at an Atlantic City casino.
