27 March Jorge Elicier Julio w pts 12 Julio Gamboa, Jai-Alai Fronton, Miami, Florida, USA - WBO. Referee: Bill Connors. Scorecards: 115-114, 115-113, 115-113. Aggressive for most of the contest, the southpaw challenger was certainly a handful for Julio (117¼), despite being badly cut over the right eye in the opener, and went out in front with good solid jabs and two-fisted bursts. However, in the eighth round Gamboa (117¾) began to fade as Julio came on fast to take up the slack, his punches possessing better quality, but he still had it all to do and it came as a surprise when he was given the decision.
