Gamboa vs Ponce De Leon : cut stops fight


By @livefight

29-year old Yuriorkis Gamboa improved his record to 21-0 (16ko) with a mature and patient performance over the tough Daniel Ponce De Leon.

Both men put in a sporting effort, with the 5'5" Cuban's class just proved the difference in all of the rounds and whilst it was not a whitewash, it was difficult to give Ponce De Leon any share of the points.

Unfortunately Gamboa's orthadox stance lead to a head clash against the Ponce De Leon's own southpaw style in the 8th round.

This prompted a visit to the scorecards who gave a unanimous technical decision victory to Gamboa.

Ponce De Leon slips to 41-4 (34ko) and his second consecutive loss in the featherweight class.
