Gamboa Vows To Prove Critics Wrong Against Gervonta Davis

Olympic gold medal winner Yuriorkis Gamboa is very eager to prove the critics wrong, when he collides with heavy favorite Gervonta Davis for the vacant WBA "regular" lightweight title.

The contest will take place on December 28th, as the main event of a Showtime televised card, with Davis looking to capture his second divisional title.

Gamboa, also a former world champion is getting prepared at Pedro Roque's gym in Miami.


Gamboa is a veteran of the game and he's now closer to 40 than 30.

In his last outing, in the month of July, he blew away former champion Roman Martinez in two rounds.

"So far everything is going very well. We've done a good preparation. Basically, we're in the special part now and I think we're doing a good job for this fight,'' Gamboa told George Ebro.

"People are always going to have their opinions and you don't criticize them, but let's wait to see what happens on December 28th. Then we'll see what the result is. Everyone knows how long I've been in boxing, the story I've had gives something to talk about, and as I've always told you, I'm well prepared and any boxer will a problem with me.'

"I think it's a big fight. Everyone has seen what has happened in my last two fights and I want to give continuity to what happened in the fight against Rocky Martinez."

Gamboa is very pleased with the opportunity presented to him.

"I'm very grateful for what they are doing, for the opportunity that people at PBC are giving me. This is the time to show the promoter and everyone what we still have in boxing. Definitely, that's what we're going to prove," Gamboa said.
