Gamboa's all-action, no-defense style makes him fun to watch.

The interim WBA lightweight championship will be on the line this Saturday night from the Bell Centre in Montreal, as two undefeated Latin American fighters seek to add to their resumes.

Cuba's Yuriorkis Gamboa was once considered one of the fastest rising stars in boxing. With an all-action style that leaves himself open to getting hit more than he'd like, he's just as likely to go down as put his opponent on the floor. But that's what makes him exciting and can't-miss TV.

His opponent Darley Perez is likewise undefeated, but hasn't yet faced anything close to the level of opposition he'll see this Saturday. He has good power and is looking to make a name for himself in the United States after spending much of his early career in his native Colombia.

Read on for our complete preview and prediction for the fight.
