Yuriorkis Gamboa linked to PED bust in South Florida


“Or consider Yuriorkis Gamboa, a rising boxing star who won a gold medal for Cuba in the 2004 Athens Olympics before defecting to Miami two years later. Gamboa has compiled a 22-0 record and has won WBA and IBF featherweight titles since coming to the States.

In the 2009 notebook, Bosch outlines an extensive program he was shipping to Gamboa. In addition to protein powders and calcium/magnesium/zinc compounds, he included a six-day-a-week HGH regime, IGF-1, and a cream with 20 percent testosterone.

What’s more, Bosch even notes that Gamboa’s next bout is scheduled against Brandon Rios the following April and writes, “Start clean-up Dec. 1″ — presumably giving the boxer enough time to pass doping tests”

Video – Documentary on the man who retired Tyson, Kevin McBride, entitled “I Beat Mike Tyson”

I BEAT MIKE TYSON – (FULL FILM) from Joshua Z Weinstein on Vimeo.

In 2005, an unknown Irish boxer beat Mike Tyson in front of hundreds of thousands of people. Then he disappeared.

Filmmaker Joshua Z Weinstein rediscovers boxer Kevin McBride, raising his children in a gritty Boston suburb. Kevinʼs body is deteriorating, yet he compulsively continues to fight.

This lyrical film finds a boxer at the end of his career – engaging in the Sisyphean task that is his life.
