Gamboa still hasn't signed the final papers for Rios, but he has already signed the extension from what I've heard. I can see Gamboa's reasoning behind the no show. But he already signed the extension and should stick to fighting Rios. Gamboa is 30 and shouldn't get into a legal mess.
Okay I didn't know he had signed the extension, but not the fight. But if that's the case, he should go through with the Rios fight, train like an animal, and if he's on his game I don't think Rios can beat him. Like you said, he's already 30 and with all his amateur background, he has alot of boxing miles on him. It would really hurt his career momentum to have to sit out a year with a legal situation. Gamboa vs Broner would be great, but he should deal with Rios first and try to discuss his promotional situation then. Thanks for your input bro
