Review: 2013-06-08, disappointing fight with one knockdown: Yuriorkis Gamboa vs Darleys Perez gets two stars. Both undefeated, the Cuban Yuriorkis Gamboa (22-0-0, 16 KOs) entered as the No.1 super featherweight in the world while Darleys Perez (28-0-0, 19 KOs) entered as the No.39 lightweight. Gamboa vs Perez is valid for the interim WBA World lightweight title; undercard of Chad Dawson vs Adonis Stevenson. Watch the video!

Review: 2012-12-08, pretty good fight with three knockdowns: Yuriorkis Gamboa vs Michael Farenas gets three stars. Michael Farenas ranked as the No.29 super featherweight in the world, entered the fight with a record of 34-3-4 while the undefeated Yuriorkis Gamboa had a record of 21-0-0 (Gamboa is not ranked as he hasn’t fought since September 10, 2011 when he defeated Daniel Ponce De Leon). Gamboa vs Farenas is valid for the interim WBA World super featherweight title; undercard of Manny Pacquiao vs Juan Manuel Marquez 4. Watch the video!
Review: 2011-09-10, pleasant fight between Yuriorkis Gamboa and Daniel Ponce de Leon, but unfortunately the bout was stopped due to accidental head clash in the eighth round and the action until then was not enough for our 3 stars. Gamboa defeated Daniel Ponce de Leon by technical decision. Yuriorkis Gamboa (20-0-0) entered as the No.2 featherweight in the world while Daniel Ponce de Leon (41-3-0) entered as the No.11.

Review: 2010-09-11, Yuriorkis Gamboa (18-0-0) had won the WBA World featherweight title in 2009 and he had already defended his belt three times, instead Orlando Salido (34-10-2) was the reigning champion of the IBF featherweight title. In the eighth round Gamboa went down but in the last round the Cuban boxer knocked down Salido two times defeating the Mexican by unanimous decision (in the 12th round Joe Cortez deducted 2 points to Gamboa for hitting Salido while he was down). The fight Gamboa vs Salido was tough but also technical, with a high pace: one of the best boxing fights of 2010. Watch the video!
Review: the fight between Yuriorkis Gamboa and Jorge Solis has not been a real battle, but the Cuban boxer is always nice to see. Gamboa proved too powerful and too fast for Solis and easily wins at the fourth round. Watch the video:
