Montiel's last fight was an easy 4th round demolition of the 8-1-1 opponent.
This is a superfight. Montiel started his career at strawight. He was champion around the time everyone in his stable was champion..There wereny many fighters in the lower weight classes..now there is...and he is looking to dominate.
Montiel wants to seal his legacy with a stoppage over Gamboa. Who is naturally a much bigger guy. If he wins impressively, he wants to try out 126 and fight the championt there.

Yeah, this is a super fight!
Gamboa, a solid former Super Featherweight and current Super Bantamweight Champion finally steps up to face another special talent in Montiel. Gamboa is 16-0 and the last dominating undefeated champion since TOS retired. HWG got beaten... Deep Freeze has lost... Montiel isn undefeated... Patrick lost.. Skye lost... The only other one is Navarette but he has already struggled getting 2 draws.
Gamboa, an olympic gold medallist, agrees hes the bigger man and promises he will knock Montiel out. Afterwards if Gamboa is victorious, he will move up to either 126 or 130, hopefully getting a fight against Simone Sin.
