Neither fighter is getting the praise he deserves. Gamboa fought valiantly with a ruptured Achilles tendon and showed a lot of heart and savvy. And Davis showed why he's arguably boxing's biggest young superstar by dominating his compromised foe and getting the KO instead of cruising to a safe decision win.

Gamboa's early injury, suffered in Round 2, certainly impacted the contest so I've graded two of the items above a "3."

Without the injury, I think this fight would have been closer and more more dramatic. Looking forward to Gamboa vs Leo Santa Cruz. Also, I'd still like to see a "healthy" Gamboa against another Top 10 lightweight.
