Photos: Gamboa Putting in Work For Crawford Clash

By Reynaldo Sanchez

Cuban lightweight Yuriorkis Gamboa had a media workout on Thursday at the Iron Mike Productions Gym in Deerfield Beach, Fla. Gamboa answered some questions from the media, along with his promoter Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson. Gamboa faces WBO lightweight champion Terence Crawford on June 28th at CenturyLink Center in Omaha. Both fighters have a 23-0 record with 16 knockouts.

"We are working very hard for this fight versus Crawford, we know that this is an opportunity that we must seize and our work in the gym is the key to winning that fight," Gamboa said.

"Gamboa is a world class fighter and his skills, we not only saw them in amateur boxing when he won a gold medal, but also in professional boxing when captured the 126-pound title," said 50 Cent.
