Yuriorkis Gamboa vs. Rocky Martinez

10 rounds, lightweights

Yuriorkis Gamboa vs. Rocky Martinez is a fight between two former World Champions. We think it is fair to say that their best days are behind them. Rocky Martinez retired after he was brutally knocked out against Vasyl Lomachenko and was away for 3 years. He came back in march of this year and knocked out William Gonzalez (30-10) in a fight he was trailing behind. Gamboa only has 2 losses but he feels worn out. He did have a decent performance in his last fight when he beat Miguel Beltran jr by a UD

Both are very tough brave fighters who will fight until the end. Both guys are vulnerable defensively and have good offensive. Martinez has the better chin, no doubt about that although he was knocked out brutally. Gamboa has a tad better skills, even at this stage. If Gamboa wins, he is being lined up for a fight with Gervonta Davis. We belive he pulls off another victory in a fight that is likely to go the distance. The Pick is Yuriorkis Gamboa to win
