Gamboa Confident He Will Beat Crawford, Eyes Garcia

By Edward Chaykovsky

Yuriorkis "The Cyclone of Guantanamo" Gamboa (23-0, 16 KOs) is pretty confident about his chances to defeat World Boxing Organization (WBO) lightweight champion Terence Crawford (23-0, 16 KOs) on June 28th at Century Link Center in Omaha, Nebraska. Gamboa is hoping for a showcase win to boost his career forward to other lucrative matches. HBO will televise the fight.

"Coming from Cuba, the guys were technical and had size, and I fought them a lot. Me, I've perfected my strategy to fighting these type of fighters. I think this will be a counter-vs-counter match. Objective is to get him to the middle range where I can use my speed," Gamboa said.

"The game plan is to attack from the start, be on the defensive, and develop the fight from there. We will have a great fight and I'll give you the best of me every time I fight.  We will win."

If he wins, Gamboa hopes to secure a desired fight against Mikey Garcia.

"After this fight, sitting with SMS and looking for a fight with Garcia or someone of that stature," Gamboa said.
