Gamboa, 37, is one of the huge names that PBC has ever signed. They have inked former two division world champion Marcos Maidana to his or her own stable.

PBC has big plans for Gamboa, that captured a gold medal for Cuba. Gamboa will probably soon be fighting from the spring against an opponent to be determined before returning later this season to fight for a world title against either Super World featherweight champion Leo Santa Cruz or Super World super featherweight winner Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis.

Considering the fact that Gamboa hasn’t even fought in the 126 lb weight division within eight years since his 3rd round knockout conquer Jorge Solis at November 2011, it would seem more probable that he would challenge Gervonta in 130 due to his belt than for him to melt down from the light weight division [135 lbs] eight pounds to manage Santa Cruz due to his title at 126.

Gamboa has seen his livelihood slow to a crawl due to inactivity since losing to the bigger Terence Crawford within an ill advised fight at light weight in 2014 despite being a fighter with major gift. At lightweight, Gamboa remained Next loss and suffered yet another loss, this time for you to high degree journeyman Robinson Castellanos at 2017. Castellanos knocked down twice gamboa until the fight had been stopped from the round. This loss for Gamboa can be attributed to a mixture of ring rust.

Gamboa hasn’t even fought for him to keep his weight . There were several coicts that might have happened years ago. One was a game that was talked of between him and Juan Manuel Lopez. Major Rank made a mistake of allowing that the fight marinate and Lopez ended up losing to Orlando Salido. Lopez’therefore career has never been the same since those defeats.
