By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing - On Saturday night after defeating Daniel Ponce De Leon by way of an 8th-round technical decision, Yuriorkis Gamboa spoke to HBO's Max Kellerman. During the conversation Gamboa discussed how important the victory was and also spoke out on his desire to face off against Manny Pacquiao.

In regards to his victory over De Leon, Gamboa told Kellerman: “This fight was very important to me. This man took me to the eighth and people said I would be in danger if I was in that range."  Gamboa added: "My purpose was to extend the fight and go beyond four rounds because many people said if I went beyond the fourth, that he would be able to knock me out."

In regards to his future goals, Gamboa stated: “As I said before, I want to go for Manny Pacquiao and go for the best pound-for-pound fighters because obviously in my weight division, I have no challengers."
