Gamboa can definitely implement the volume punching strategy PDL used but with more speed, accuracy and power.

If Broners defense is as good as people make it out to be then he wins this as he also has a size advantage. However, Broners defense is nowhere near as good as advertised. slower fighters have found him cleanly. A guy like Gamboa would definitely find him and test Broners chin. My guess is once he clips him Broner will go too defensive and Gamboa will go all out with fast combinations that will keep finding Broner and either stopping him late or winning a wide UD. I do see Gamboa going down several times as well. Broner may catch him ocassionally off balance but Gamboa will recoup like usual and get back to work.

Gamboa UD is my prediction.
