Yuriorkis Gamboa & 50 Cent Media Workout Quotes

Yuriorkis Gamboa & 50 Cent

Yesterday undefeated Yuriorkis “The Cyclone of Guantanamo” Gamboa (23-0, 16 KOs) held an open media workout today at Iron Mike Promotions Gym. The media workout was hosted by Gamboa’s promoter 50 Cent to promote his June 28th world title fight against WBO lightweight champion Terence Crawford (23-0, 16 KOs) 

The title fight is being promoted by Top Rank, in association with SMS Promotions, PS4 and Tecate, Crawford vs. Gamboa will be the 12-round main event, airing live on HBO Boxing After Dark, beginning at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT, from Century Link Center in Omaha, Nebraska. BSO will be there covering the event live and providing updates. 

Here are some select Gamboa quotes:

Working with Floyd Sr: “We worked on defense and counter punching.  I know I tend to put my hands down and we worked on that.”

Strategy vs Crawford:  “The game plan is to attack from the start, be on the defensive, and develop the fight from there.”

Why did you go fight Crawford in his hometown:  “At this point, we have nothing to lose. We fight whenever, where ever.”

Working with 50: “It’s been two years up to this point it has been a great opportunity.  I’m aware that other promoters have not made it easy for 50 to complete his two bout agreement.”

And here is what 50 had to say about the fight:

“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.”
