Burgos Dropping Back Down: Eyes Gamboa, Juanma

By Ryan Burton

Juan Carlos Burgos recently appeared on The Boxing Lab, BoxingScene.com's official audio show. The Mexican spoke about his victory on Saturday over the previously undefeated Luis Cruz of Puerto Rico which took place in the super featherweight division.  Burgos was able to upset Cruz by continually landing hid left hook and withstood a late charge by the Puerto Rican.

Burgos revealed that his move up to 130 poiunds would be a short one and that he will be moving back to featherweight in his next fight.

"I feel better at 126. I just took this fight because it was a good opportunity and I knew I would beat him," Burgos told The Boxing Lab.

Burgos is looking for a title shot in his next ring appearance.  After taking a short rest he hopes to take on one of the top fighters in the featherweight division.

"I want to fight the best. Fighters like Juanma Lopez, Yuriorkis Gamboa, Jhohnny Gonzalez. I have to fight the best out there to prove that I am the best."

Billy Dib is probably the easiest champion at 126. Fight him! Johnny Gonzalez should be considered quite easy as well, due to his terrible chin!
