Haney (24-0 15 KOs) stepped back into the ring for the first time since November 2019 when he defeated Alfredo Santiago to successfully defend his championship for the first time on the Logan Paul KSI card. After the fight, Haney had surgery on his right shoulder. Haney had targeted bouts with Adrien Broner and Gary Russell Jr., but Gamboa was the one ready to step on the plate and challenge the 21-year-old. Haney knows Gamboa went through the buzz with some of the best the sport has to offer.
“Yuriokis Gamboa is a dangerous and experienced fighter,” said Haney. “He’s a former world champion and he’s been with some of the best in the ring. He injured Terence Crawford with a big shot so his power cannot be ignored. He defeated Orlando Salido who defeated Vasiliy Lomachenko. Less than a year ago he brought Gervonta Davis into the 12th round, which nobody has been able to do before. Gamboa is a true warrior and I don’t take him lightly. I named all of the top names and finally found someone to challenge me for my title. I intend to make a statement in this fight. My hunger is on another level. It’s time to show the world who the best fighter in boxing is and that’s me! ”
Without question, Gamboa (30-3 18 KOs) is Haney’s toughest date to date. The Cuban is a 2004 Olympic gold medalist and stood pound for pound against the great Crawford and Davis. At the beginning of his TKO loss to Davis in the 12th round, Gamboa suffered an Achilles tear and fought to the end. After the fight, Gamboa underwent surgery to repair the injury. Gamboa gets his third chance to become a two weight world champion and knows this could be the last time he gets a jump into gold.
“I am very grateful to God that he allowed this fight and that he healed my Achilles,” said Gamboa. “Since becoming an amateur in Cuba, I’ve dreamed and wanted to fight for the WBC Green Belt. I am ready and determined to win this title for my fans and prove those who wrote me off as a stranded fighter. I fell short against Davis in the second round because of my Achilles, but I fought on one foot for the rest of the fight and injured him in the middle round. You will see a healthy gamboa fight with both my legs, fists and my warrior heart. With God’s blessing, I will emerge victorious on November 7th. ”
Can Haney face the opportunity and do a spectacular job to keep himself talking to lightweight? Will Gamboa be able to show that he has more in the gas tank?
