In the sixth, Gamboa was outworking him early with good combinations when they got in close. Sosa began working hard as the round played out and landed some decent punches.

At the start of the seventh, there was a knockdown called because Gamboa got hit with a right hand that caused him to dip down and his glove touched the mat. Sosa was starting to do some real damage with the punches that he was landing to the head and body. Sosa continued to push forward with good shots in the eight and did the better work.

[QUOTE=lolpz;18243567]Gamboa won the fight.[/QUOTE] I thought Sosa clearly won. Gamboa was shocked when they announced his name, I was to.

[QUOTE=Floyd's Mask;18243561]Moreover, if a late replacement in Gamboa can beat Sosa....shows how ESPN and Top Rank selected for Loma some easy fights... but Walter's wasn't shelved by Top Rank...[/QUOTE] So does Rigo best Loma?
