Gamboa conquista cetro superpluma AMB

El cubano Yuriorkis Gamboa se sobrepuso a una caída para imponerse por decisión unánime al filipino Michael Farenas y conquistar el título interino superpluma de la Asociación Mundial de Boxeo (AMB) en la cartelera estelarizada por Manny Pacaquiao y Juan Manuel Márquez.

Gamboa (22-0, 16 KOs), quien peleaba por primera vez en 15 meses, derribó a Farenas en el segundo y séptimo asalto, pero en el noveno acto un gancho de izquierda envió a la lona al cubano.

El ex campeón pluma, sin embargo, volvió a la carga y continuó con su dominio para recibir el favor de los jueces 117-109, 118-108 y 117-108.
