Hometown - Dallas, Texas, USA

3(0)-9-4; 4 NC

Bobby Burns seemed to fight the same folks over and over again. He had a 0-2-2; 2 NC record against Battling Al Murray and had a 0-2-1; 1 NC record with Young Kid Zulu. When Burns fought Johnny Ertle in 1916, Ertle was supposedly defending the World Bantamweight title that he claimed to hold. While it may not be believable that Burns was qualified to to receive a title shot, it is certainly understandable why Ertle would have wanted to defend against Burns. In any event, Burns was stopped in the fourth and continued his unimpressive ways after the "title shot".
