Place your bets on "beyond" ultimate history!
Taking nothing away from No Fear I can't see anything other than a Gamboa win.
Big reason No Fear took this fight is because most think he cant win. If he does win, it could go down as one of the biggest things to ever happen in league history.
Montiel is behind No Fear 100%....but even Montiel thinks No Fear has no chance.

"No Fear is one of my good friends...but I'm worried for him. He might get seriously hurt."
Well for sure this is a VERY difficult fight for Gamboa. Its always hard to get the right impression of these fighters who are coming up in weight. Against Gamboa would definitely have known what to do, but against No Fear he will have to figure out the right tactics. And being the number 1 at 122 No Fear is a great fighter.
Definently an intriguing match up.

No Fear has invited both of his good friends, Montiel & Skipton to join him in training camp for this difficult fight. Montiel for sure since he has been in the ring with Gamboa.

It's presumable that Gamboa will knockout No Fear but there is a big possibility that No Fear has the boxing skills to pull this off. So while Gamboa should be the fav, No Fear is a definently an underdog to drop money on.

No Fear drops a UD via scores of 118-113, 117-112, 116-113 while ringside observers had it 115-113 for Gamboa.

No Fear was never hurt in the fight. No Fear did ask for one last chance against Gamboa but the ball is in Gamboa's court, No Fear believes he has the tools to beat Gamboa.
