Yuriorkis Gamboa: I Think I Could Have Continued

Gamboa was dropped four time in the contest, including two big knockdowns in the ninth, which forced the referee to wave things off.

I think he never recup from the first knock down, what amaze me is that he was able to hurt a much bigger man while he was himself in queer street, come down to 126-30 and forget about 135+
