Steven Gamache Pleads Not Guilty to Hydrocodone Charge

by David P. Greisman

Steven Gamache — a junior middleweight who is the son of former two-division titleholder Joey Gamache —pleaded not guilty last week to one count of unlawful possession of a scheduled drug, a charge that came after he was arrested in Maine and allegedly found with two hydrocodone pills in his possession, according to the Lewiston-Auburn Sun Journal.

Gamache, 29, had been pulled over in late November during a traffic stop and did not have a prescription for the drug, according to the article.

“Police said Gamache told the officer a co-worker had given him the pills to treat an unspecified medical condition,” the article said.

Gamache made his pro debut in August 2010 and has fought four times, going 4-0 with one victory coming by way of knockout. His last appearance was in October, a four-round decision win over a 4-10-1 fighter named Jose Angel Ortiz, according to That website shows him as having his next bout scheduled for Jan. 25.

His father, Joey Gamache, fought between 1987 and 2000, winning a title at junior lightweight in 1991 and at lightweight in 1992. Joey Gamache’s last fight was a second-round knockout loss to Arturo Gatti.
