Leo Gamez

Silvio Rafael Gamez , better known as Leo Gamez, is a former boxer from Venezuela. A former world Flyweight champion, Gamez became the first Flyweight boxer in history to win world titles in four different divisions.

Gamez is considered by some boxing critics to be among Venezuela's best fighters since the Betulio Gonzalez era.

He made his professional boxing debut on February 14, 1985 in Maracay, when he decisioned Francisco Garcia over four rounds. On April 17 of that same year, he got his second victory, another four round points win, this time over Alcides Hernandez, also in Maracay. After those two wins, Gamez had six consecutive knockout wins, including two over Rafael Lara, and one in his first fight outside Maracay, held on August 14 at El Guayabo, where he beat Jose Escorcia in the fourth round. On November 28 of 1986, he would beat Escorcia's brother, Alberto, also by knockout in four rounds, at Maracaibo.
