BoxingScene.com recently caught up with with former featherweight champion Yuriorkis Gamboa.  The Olympic gold medalist faces hard hitting Darley Perez (28-0, 19KOs) of Colombia on June 8th in Montreal, Canada. The fight will be televised by HBO as the co-feature to the Chad Dawson versus Adonis Stevenson fight.

Gamboa (22-0, 16KOs) last fought in December when he defeated Michael Farenas via unanimous decision. Although he scored two knockdowns in the fight, he was knocked down himself and appeared rusty.  He said that he plans on putting on a better showing on June 8th.
 
"I'm very focused on the fight.  In going to go out there and do my best like I always do. I can't wait till fight night.  I hope to put on a better performance on June 8th," Gamboa stated.  

The Cuban said he didn't want to make excuses for the Farenas fight but said that he suffered an injury in training camp that hindered his ability train late in his camp. He has had no such issues in this camp. 

"The objective of the fight is to win which I did but I wasn't very happy with the fight against Farenas.  I had an injury in training camp.  I had a groin pull two weeks before the fight which limited my ability to train and spar at that point in camp. Those things happen though. We fought through it and got the win," Gamboa explained.

The problem for guys like Bosch is that someone always talks. There's too much of a trail for someone not to be implicated and when it comes down to it, someone is going to sing rather than go to prison for dealing drugs. They already have a doctor who's name was forged on prescriptions by Bosch ...

Christ, this juice-ridden oompa-loompa is beyond irrelevant at this point. Most people watching this card won't recognize him and will be wondering why there's a child mascot with boxing gloves on in the ring.

Gamboa is the other Cuban Boxer that can rise up and be Champ like Rigo! He should come out clear from any drug issue, train real hard, and become like his countryman Rigo. Gamboa can be a Champ at 130lbs Jr Lightweight Division
