A trio of young undefeated phenoms were in action in meaningful fights on Saturday night at Terrible’s Primm Valley Casino Resorts in Primm, Nevada. In the main event, WBA #3/WBC #4 super featherweight Yuriokis Gamboa (10-0, 8 KOs), a 2004 Cuban Olympic gold medalist, won a ten round unanimous decision over game veteran Darling Jimenez (23-3-2, 14 KOs) to win the vacant WBC International super featherweight championship former held by Manny Pacquiao. It wasn't all Gamboa's way as he was dropped by a Jimenez right hand in round four, but otherwise Gamboa was impressive as he won by scores of 97-92, 97-92, 98-91. "Gamboa is a complete fighter but tonight I wasn't happy with his performance," stated ARENA-CEO Ahmet Öner. "He was a little bit too arrogant and gave me a hard time. You must not forget that it was only his tenth pro-fight though. He has got to improve his defense but he will definitely be world champion one day. After all I'm glad that he had to go the distance. That was an important experience for him."

saturday was a fantastic night of fights. I enjoyed all three. pretty much agree with everyone about Gamboa's habits. He has so much potentialk it aint even funny. if he can straighting some of those habits out, he'll be quite a force.

I question how long it will take to correct them though. he's had 400+ amature fights. keeping his hands low is embeded in his mind at this point. It may take a while to correct that. If he doesn't it's only a matter of time before he gets "caught" coming in. he may have the best foot movement i've ever seen though. he never stops moving,

i saw the full fight last night, and boy does that kid needs to stick his hands up.

in the 5th round he dropped his defense for 5-10 seconds.

but he fought good tho, he was throwing and connecting alot of punches.

let's not hope he turns out to be a hamed-wannabe :rolleyes:.

That's what I'm saying. These Cubann Amateurs all fall the same way. Cocky bastards who never change from amateur to pro.
