Prediction,

Gamboa, in his prime, was very good, before he fought Crawford, he was unbeaten, was a world champion, was a great amateur, as you would expect a good Cuban boxer to be, had 250 fights, Olympic gold medallist in 2004, won gold in the World Cup tournament in 2006, competed in many world tournaments. As a professional, Gamboa has never been the same since he lost to Crawford, part of it is about age, because he is 36 now, but it is also the mental affect the Crawford loss took on him, and the damage he took in that fight, and now, Gamboa's biggest weakness, his very vulnerable chin, is a bigger potnetial problem for him now than earlier in his career, he has been knocked down 14 times in his career, that's a lot of knockdowns for a fighter with just 2 losses to concede, for a 50 fight career, never mind a 30 fight career, which is the amount of fights Gamboa has had. Gamboa did great against Crawford, for 4 rounds, he gave Crawford his only real career struggle, but after the fight, after winning a comeback fight, he took a year out, fought again, took 15 months out, had a very active 2017, had 4 fights in 1 year, but has not fought since November last year, so that's a year out of the ring. Last year, Gamboa lost to Robinson Castellanos, then in his next fight, only just edged out Alexis Reyes (15-2), seemed shot to hell, fought Jason Sosa a year ago, and did much better, won the fight, won it controversially, I thought it was very close, but Gamboa did well in that fight. I don't think Gamboa can compete at world level now, not at all, he's old, he has a lot of miles, he hasn't been consistent, and I think the Crawford fight ruined him, but at this level, he can still earn a living, be in good fights.

Beltran should be confident of his chances in this fight, he's much younger, he's fresher, he has more experience, obviously not the better experience, but he has been in against Roman Martinez, for the WBO title in 2012. Beltran's record is 33-6, he has won 4 of his last 6, he was beaten by Francisco Gabriel Pina (12-12) in 2016, came back with a win, but then lost to Casey Ramos (23-1), and took 17 months out, he came back 2 months ago and got a 1st round stoppage over Misael Munoz (0-13), which is the minimum you would expect against a fighter with no wins.

Activity is interesting for this fight, Beltran comes off just 2 months out, Gamboa comes off a year out, and from 2015 to now, Beltran has had 6 fights, Gamboa has had 5, but Gamboa has had 4 fights from 2017 to now, Beltran has had 2, Gamboa has done 37 rounds in that time, Beltran has done 11. I think activity is on Gamboa's side just slightly.

Gamboa is much better than Beltran, and if this was a prime on prime fight, Gamboa would win easy if he didn't get caught and possibly dropped, but even if Beltran is very rusty, doesn't have the commitment to the sport, Gamboa can't be in a great place mentally as a fighter, is old, has been knocked down so many times, taken a couple of beatings.

I think Gamboa will win this, I wouldn't be shocked if he lost, he probably will have bad rounds, might well get dropped for what I believe would be the 15th time, but I think he will win, maybe by SD.
