March 27th, 2011. Brad Cooney. WBA featherweight champion Yuriorkis Gamboa (20-0, 16 KO) sent challenger Jorge Solis (40-3-2, 29 KO) to the floor 5 times in only 4 rounds. Gamboa of Cuba made a clear statement to anyone in his path last night in front of 3000 fans at the Boardwalk, in Atlantic City, NJ. After being knocked down 5 times by Gamboa, the referee finally had seen enough and called a halt to the action. Official time 1:31 round 4
On the under-card, Miguel Angel “Mikey” Garcia (25-0, 21 KO) soundly defeated New England prospect Matt Remillard (23-1, 13 KO) Remillard came to fight, but he was clearly outclassed by the more aggressive and talented Garcia. As the fight went on Garcia was able to wear down the game Remillard and was able to drop him twice in round 9, and again in round 10. Remillard's corner rightfully stopped the fight before the 11th round could start.
