A Hard Detour: Yuriorkis Gamboa Challenges Terence Crawford for the Lightweight Title


****

Yuriorkis Gamboa tries to recharge a career that has dimmed like the headlights of a Chevy Fleetline abandoned on a side street in Havana when he faces rising Terence Crawford on June 28 for the WKRP lightweight title. To do that, Gamboa, inactive for over a year, will not only have to beat a hungry young pro on the road, but he will also have to show far more zeal in the ring than he has in years. You can find more action in a sleep clinic these days than in a Gamboa fight, and it is hard not to suspect that Gamboa has developed a blasé attitude to mirror his lackluster performances. Add to that any number of extracurricular foibles over the last two years—ranging from canceled fights to lawsuits to domestic violence charges—and you have a career flagging in the dust.
