Yuriorkis Gamboa Hires Emanuel Steward as New Trainer

Hall of Fame coach and living legend Emanuel Steward is the new head coach of fast rising Cuban superstar Yuriorkis "El Ciclon“ Gamboa. Promoter Ahmet Oner sealed the deal with Steward at the WBO convention in Puerto Rico on Wednesday. Gamboa had split up with his former amateur coach Ismael Salas after his most recent win over former world champion Daniel Ponce de Leon on September 10th in Atlantic City.

Steward has worked with some of the greatest fighters of all times including "Hitman“ Tommy Hearns, Oscar de la Hoya, Julio Cesar Chavez and Lennox Lewis, only to name a few. Currently Steward is training world heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko.

"Emanuel Steward is one of the best trainers in the world – with Gamboa he now has one of the best fighters in the world“, says promoter Ahmet Oner.

"I am very happy with this solution and I hope that Steward will take Gamboa to the next level. Yuri is already a complete fighter but it doesn’t matter how good you are – a great trainer will always find a way to make you even better.“
