Yuri Gamboa, former Olymic gold medalist and fighting after more than one year, had little difficulty in dispatching his rival from Philippines, Michael Farenas, and in the process handing 50 Cent his first win as a boxing promoter.
The fight was important for Gamboa as at stake was the WBA interim-super featherweight title and that rests with him right now. Although he won by a comfortable margin, Gamboa did have a scare in the ninth round when he was knocked down. The final score read 117-109, 118-108 and 117-108 in Gamboa’s favor.
