Undefeated multi-division world champion Yuriorkis “The Cyclone of Guantanamo” Gamboa (23-0, 16 KOs) held an open media workout today at Iron Mike Promotions Gym in Deerfield Beach, Florida to promote Gamboa’s June 28 HBO-televised world title fight against WBO lightweight champion Terence Crawford (23-0, 16 KOs) in Crawford’s hometown of Omaha, Nebraska. Gamboa looked quick and powerful in four fast paced rounds of sparring with welterweight Prince Doku Jr.

Gamboa stated that his gameplan against Crawford will be “to attack from the start, be on the defensive, and develop the fight from there.” He is not at all worried about Crawford’s technical boxing skills. “Coming from Cuba, the guys were technical and had size, and I fought them a lot. Me, I’ve perfected my strategy to fighting these type of fighters.”

Gamboa’s promoter 50 Cent stated “Gamboa has been with me from the beginning. I got the opportunity to see his talents early on. He’s here in Miami training hard and this is going to be a great fight.”
