I would have preferred that Gamboa stayed with his Cuban Coach Salas. I don't know what happened that they split cause they had wonderful results and relationship. It's like the old saying goes " don't fix it if it's not broken ".
While Steward is a very good trainer, I am afraid that he may want to change Yuriorki's style to a more defensive one and that will not work for Gamboa as he is used to having that " hurricane " offensive style all his life.
Only time will tell if it will work out or not. I still remember how Joe Goosen changed Casamayor's offensive style to a more defensive counter-puncher which worked against some but cost him 3 loses against Freitas, Castillo and Corrales for being too defensive minded.
Let's see how it goes, we should see how Gamboa looks in his next bout!
