Yuriorkis Gamboa: I'm Ready To Beat Anyone in My Path

By Raphael Kyć

Yuriorkis Gamboa (19-0, 15 KO) returns to the ring on March 26 in Atlantic City, where he defends his WBA and IBF featherweight titles against the WBA's interim champion at super featherweight, Jorge Solis (40-2-2, 29 KO). Gamboa believes that his career is starting to gain a lot of momentum, but he also admits that his biggest battles are still to come.

"I am proud that after only four years in my professional career, I have two championship belts. We are constantly working hard to be even better. My goal is to prove that I'm the best fighter in the world. I have to beat anyone who stands in my way," said Gamboa.

Gamboa's co-promoter Ahmet Oner of Arena Box is expecting an exciting battle when his boxer faces Solis.

"Solis is still a world champion at super featherweight and he has extensive experience. He fought with a lot of great fighters. This will be an exciting duel," Oner said.
