Default Video of Gamboa doing some padwork...

BORKED

Extremely impressive. And he isn't tapping the pads like Mayweather does all the time; you can hear the impact of his punches.

Gamboa TKO3 Jiminez

Maybe the pads are made of wool?

What impresses me the most is that he can throw punches going backwards ...

Thats going to be key when he's faced with adversity and he has to make adjustments ... he has his shoulders moving to ... he has skill and speed ...

I want to see this guy fight Pacquiao ...

Even when you look at his pro-fights, 99% of his shots thrown have grade A force for that particular punch. There is no pitty patter.

I cant wait until he steps up.

No doubt the most impresive prospect since RJJ & Tyson.

Good work indeed, but you are going to hear more of an impact with the pads because of the environment in which the audio is recorded.

Of course this is impressive, but it doesn't completely blow me away like Floyd's pad work with Roger. They've done it so many thousands of times together that every defensive move is absolutely perfect, and flows into the next combination.

Gamboa's power seems so natural. He never has to load up on anything. The power is generated by the precision of his technique.

What kind of gym is that? Looks like a cardio gym to me.

yep. he does drop his hands. he's no doubt an offensive machine but his D definitely needs some work. a crisp, precise counter-puncher will make him pay for that.

He himself admits that's something he has to get rid of... it's good that he knows his weaknesses...

flyod has music on in the background when he trains his punchers can hardley be hearded ith roger mayweather shouting your the greatest which also dies the sound out! gamboa was impressive but the best person i ever seen train was ricky hatton on the body bag now that was impressive! yo can look so good while training but anything can happen in the ring!

impressive - but pad work like that is all set routine. No doubt he is very good - but styles make fights and no amount of looking good on the pads means you will be anywhere near as impressive in a real fist fight. I cant read too much into it - but all it tells you is he is a skillful crisp fast powerful puncher.
