Yuriorkis Gamboa vs. Daniel Ponce de Leon ( Gamboa Wins)

Gamboa Wins By Technical Unanimous Decision
TopRank: Yuriorkis Gamboa vs. Daniel Ponce de Leon
Boardwalk Hall, Atlantic City NJ, 12 Rounds Featherweights, 10:30 EST (September 10, 2011)

The fight between Gamboa and Ponce de Leon made me think that Experience is not enough to win every fight. Gamboa prove his strength with determination, though he has a lot few experiences than Ponce de Leon. At First I was expecting that Ponce de Leon will rule the boxing ring.

From Top Rank Boxing News
"Gamboa handled Ponce De Leon with relative ease for the entire seven and a half rounds. He would stab in and bang his foe up, then stab out, his hands at his sides. He made it look easy. To Ponce De Leon’s credit, after he got caught in the corner and walloped in the second round, he was able to stay out of serious trouble. But he was too slow to keep pace with Gamboa, who did as he wanted, when he wanted.

The fight appeared primed to go the distance in much the same vein, but then Ponce De Leon got cut on his forehead. In the eighth, the ref haulted the action because the doctor couldn’t’ stop the bleeding. It was a somewhat disappointing ending to an otherwise classy performance by the lightning-quick Cuban.

Two judges scored it 80-72, with the third scoring it 79-73."
