Orzubek (19-0, 14) Vs Joey Gamache (36-1, 22)
In October 1993 Orzubek Nazarov, a fighter originally from Kyrgyzstan, claimed the WBA Lightweight title by traveling to South African and defeating Dingaan Thobela. Nazarov's first defense of the belt also came against Thobela. His second saw him travelling to the US and fighting the popular Joey Gamache, a former Super Featherweight and Lightweight world champion. The bout was Nazarov's US debut though her certainly managed to leave a lasting impression and would later return to the country to fight Levander Johnson in 1997.
