Pro career[edit]

Gould began his professional career that same year and retired in 1993 with a career record of 26-2-0. He fought limited opposition throughout his career, and was unable to compete at the higher levels of the pro ranks. His most notable foe was undefeated contender Roger Turner, who beat Gould by decision, and later went on to be KO'd by Félix Trinidad in a world title fight. Gould went on to win the fringe IBO world title, but was forced to retire due to a shoulder injury.
