Default Why did Gamboa ***** out of the Rios fight?

Just found out it's off because Gamboa refused to turn up to the press conferences. What a clown. This was a fight the fans wanted. He does not want to be great. That fight would have taken his career to a new level, and probably put him top 5 P4P if he won. That's the difference between a pretender and a true legend like Pacquiao who put it all on the line going up in weight late in his career. Funny how Pacquiao haters claim going up multiple weights is easy. Gamboa was going to be the next guy to try do something similar. Such a shame he lost his balls for it.

I still don't understand. At all. If he fights and beats Rios, he is in position for Pacquiao, and makes enough money to do this the same way Oscar and Floyd did possibly. Terrible career move.

All signs lead to him being influenced by Floyd to pull out of the fight and leave Top Rank.

Highly doubt it. He was already jumping 2 divisions to fight Rios. U really think he would move up to 147 for a fight with Pacquiao? Given Gamboas come forward style he would get slaughtered by Pac.

He should've never take the fight and challange Rios at first place, dumb rushed move. Even he happend to beat Rios, he still would never be as good at lightweight as he is at 126 and may be at 130.

In a year, at 140 or something close, hell yeah that's a fight Gamboa was being set up to get. Arum was ready to give Gamboa the world, and Gamboa said no.

Are you for real? Gamboa is not a come forward kind of fighter, he is a heck of a technician, faster than most and with alot of pop, throws combinations like no other and a well of experience, he goes forward when he want it but most of the time he will pick u apart from outside even though he is shorter than most of his opponents...

What you are saying is BS, Arum was keeping Gamboa on the background while putting all his money behind Juama and Pacquio and to a certain degree Donaire, if what you are saying is true Gamboa vs. Lopez would had happen already, and Donaire next...

A very risky move by yurio which he say is all about getting less money but I hope things will turn up better for him. Good luck, Gamboa.
