Yuriorkis Gamboa vs. Miguel Beltran in Play For November 10

By Elisinio Castillo

Former world champion Yuriorkis Gamboa is slated to return to the ring on November 10, in Miami, Florida.

According to boxing businessman Luis "Louie" Fernandez, a fight between Gamboa and Mexico's Miguel Beltran Jr. (32-6, 21 KO) is already signed and only minimal details would be needed to close it completely.

"The signatures of both fighters are already on the contract, so this is something that advances for the good of all involved," said Fernandez, one of the main promoters of the evening, to George Ebro. "We believe that this will be an event of the highest quality, the first of several in Miami."

Fernandez is currently pitting together several other fights for the show, which appears that it will be showcased as a minor level pay-per-view event.

"Miami and Florida in general have a huge number of registered professional fighters," Fernandez added. "Gamboa is our great figure, but we hope that other warriors in the courtyard will also be visible that night."

For Gamboa it will be his first presentation since he defeated Jason Sosa in Madison Square Garden in November 2017 and the first of his professional career in the city where he lives.

The closest he has come to fighting in Miami was in October 2007, when he picked up a win at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino at the Hollywood Hotel over Adailton de Jesus, which also meant his debut in the United States.

For Beltrán Jr., who has won two and lost two in his last four presentations, this would be his third bout outside of Mexico and against a quality rival, after having measured himself in the past against Román Martínez and Juan Carlos Salgado.

According to Fernandez, this initial visit to Miami could be the impetus that Gamboa's career lacked.

"One night like the one on November 10, we need him and he needs the city of Miami," said Fernandez. "We hope to make a first-class event, with great quality and entertainment. An event that Gamboa and Miami deserve. "

Gamboa had plenty of potential but wasn’t moved along properly. Landed with wrong promoter that didn’t know what the hell he was doing and cost Gambia his career.

How many years exactly is it going to take for WBC to order Miguel Roman vs Miguel Berchelt? Roman is suppose to be a mandator for a while already and Berchelt keeps beating on lower level guys for whatever reason?
