Gamboa to train in Tampa

WBA featherweight champ Yuriorkis Gamboa has selected a new training location to prepare for his upcoming Sept. 11 fight against IBF Champ Orlando Salido. Gamboa will arrive Sunday in Tampa, Florida, and will commence training on Monday at the Fight Factory gym, which is run by Pete Fernandez and Michael Asmer. Fight Factory is the site where Miguel Cotto trained for his previous two bouts, and was featured in HBO’s 24-7 series for the Pacquiao-Cotto bout. The gym will be closed to the public during Gamboa’s workout sessions.

From the beginning, we have always kept Fightnews free to our readers and relied on advertiser support. Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.
