If he were to beat Martinez and Rios, he could still fight Guerrero, Marquez, DeMarco, or Linares at 135, or move up to 140. Gamboa already weighs in at 138-140 on fight night anyway.

I just hope Donaire can move up quickly with success as well. Donaire should fight Arce and either Nishioka or the Ramos-Rigondeaux winner at 122, and than move up to 126. At 126, he could fight Lopez and Garcia, than move up to 130 and 135.
I don't know what Gamboa tends to weigh the night of a fight. I don't doubt he might weigh as much as 140. Let's say, for the sake of argument, he weighs exactly that. That's fourteen pounds heavier than the featherweight limit. If Yuri starts to compete at lightweight, he'll be much closer to his natural walking around weight than someone like Brandon Rios.

How much does a guy like Rios weigh come fight night? 145 to 150? Can you see Gamboa weighing that much on the night of a fight? Yuri could be outweighed by ten or more pounds in a fight against "Bam Bam". I don't like the way that sounds.
