Video: Yuriorkis Gamboa Talks Alvarado Win, The Future, More

VERONA, NEW YORK - In his highly anticipated return to the ring, Cuban stand out Yuriorkis "El Ciclón de Guantánamo" Gamboa (26-1, 17 KOs) secured a unanimous decision win over Nicaragua's Rene "Gemelo" Alvarado (24-8, 16 KOs) as the televised co-main event.

Gamboa demonstrated his power and resilience in his return to the ring, with the judges scoring the bout 97-92, 97-92, and 97-93.

Kick starting the action packed night, Philly's Todd "2Gunz" Unthank-May (11-0, 4 KOs) improved his record taking on southpaw fighter Quinton Rankin (12-4-1, 9 KOs) of Charlotte, NC for an eight round light heavyweight fight. The fight went the distance, but Unthank-May took home the unanimous decision win

"It's another win, and I'm just glad I get to be under the Golden Boy banner," said Unthank-May. "Bernard Hopkins is my inspiration, and I hope to have a career like his."

A part of the international broadcast, Zachary "Zungry" Ochoa (16-1, 7 KOs) suffered his first career loss against the mighty Yves Ulysse (13-0, 9 KOs) for the vacant Junior NABF Super Lightweight title. Yves turned up the heat during the fourth round, showing off his reach and powerful left arm and right hook combinations that left bruises under Ochoa's right eye.

The fire was completely unleashed during the seventh round, and Ulysse cornered Ochoa landing powerful straight right arm punches. Ochoa's corner waved the white towel before the eight round could begin, awarding the technical knock out and NABF belt to Ulysse.

"I dedicate this victory to everybody that doubted me," said Yves Ulysse. "I did my homework and beat him in his hometown. This is just the beginning of the adventure. Ulysse Nation, that's the name to remember."

Also on the undercard, Diego De La Hoya (17-0, 9 KOs) faced off against the tough Roberto "Escorpión" Pucheta (10-10-1, 6 KOs) for an eight round bout that went the distance.
