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 BoxRec.com. 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.

I didn't even realize he was a pro, I've seen him training at a gym I was at, nothing impressive about him. His pops was a nice guy though.
