Yuriorkis Gamboa's opponent named for Feb. 20

_39911945_estrada203_medium An opponent has been named for Yuriorkis Gamboa's February 20 return to the ring on an action-packed Friday Night Fights. Colombian Walter Estrada will face the Cuban star prospect.

Estrada (35-8, 24 KO) has become a bit of a go-to gatekeeper since challenging Scott Harrison for the WBO featherweight title in 2004. Since then, he's gone 9-5, beating no one of any repute and losing to the likes of Vicente Mosquera, Kevin Mitchell and Roman Martinez, among others.

Should be a semi-walkover for Gamboa, though you should always beware the Colombians. A Gamboa win sets him up for another quick return to the ring on April 3, where he'll main event Shobox from Primm, Nevada.

Gamboa-Estrada will be part of a killer Friday Night Fights tripleheader along with Richar Gutierrez-Jesus Gonzalez and Breidis Prescott-Humberto Toledo.
