Gamboa Arrested in Florida, Accused of Domestic Violence

by David P. Greisman

Former 130-pound titleholder Yuriorkis Gamboa has been arrested and is facing two counts of domestic violence battery, according to the Miami-Dade County Corrections Inmate Profile System.

Online court records show both charges to be misdemeanors. He was arraigned on Nov. 14 and ordered not to have any contact with two women, one of whom is his wife.

(A hat tip to the Reddit boxing forum, which noted Gamboa’s arrest by linking to his mugshot.)

Gamboa also faced domestic violence allegations in 2011. That case does not appear to have gone to trial, as it is no longer listed in online court records.

Gamboa, 31, last fought in June, when he outpointed Darlys Perez to move to 23-0 with 16 knockouts.

The article doesn't say anything about the incident. Who knows what really happened? But this is beginning to look like a case of "where there's smoke there's fire." Gamboa's an idiot.

He's probably doing it on purpose and thinks it will improve his marketability. When Floyd did it, his fans said it's great marketing genius. :boxing:
