Yuriorkis “El Ciclon” Gamboa (18-0, 15 KOs) successfully defended his WBA featherweight championship with a twelve round unanimous decision over previously unbeaten Argentinian Jonathan Victor Barros (28-1-1, 16 KOs) on Saturday night at the Sporthalle Hamburg in Hamburg, Germany. After two tame opening rounds, Gamboa opened up in round three, but Barros proved to be a tough, durable opponent who didn’t fold under Gamboa’s speed, power and pressure. Gamboa finally battered Barros to the deck in round eight, but the über-tough Barros weathered Gamboa’s violent follow-up assault and somehow made it to the final bell. Scores were 118-109, 118-109, 116-111.
