What exactly makes you think that
Gamboa is simply "better"? Serious question. He's a bit more explosive, and maybe a bit more athletic but El Chacal is a supreme counter puncher, and I think he is not only more responsible defensively, but overall better defensively then Gamboa. Gamboa would not be able to just explode on Rigondeaux in the same fashion he does everyone else. Rigondeaux is dangerously accurate and has some of the most shocking timing I've personally ever witnessed.
