Gamboa Plans 2020 Return From Injury

After suffering an injury in the second round of his loss to Gervonta Davis, Yuriokis Gamboa is eyeing a return to the ring next year.

Gamboa, who suffered a twelfth-round knockout to Davis for the WBA “regular” lightweight championship, tore his right Achilles tendon early in the fight, forcing him to soldier on against the younger Davis.

“As I passed through the neutral corner, I felt as if I had been hit in the foot,” Gamboa said. “From that moment I felt a lot of pain, but I did not want or could leave. That is my warrior heart and it is something that I have demonstrated throughout my career ’.

“Thank you very much to my fans who supported me for this fight against Davis,” Gamboa said on social media. “Unfortunately, I broke the Achilles Tendon in the 2nd round, but I kept up to fight and win the fight. I promised them all of me and so it was. Now to recover and move on.”
