Lee Labrada, another Cuban, did pretty well for himself both in bodybuilding and in the nutritional supplements industry.

The way he calls 50 into the ring to take pics with him and now doing the mitts together.
I've been following Gamboa since before I joined this forum. In fact, I joined because I was hungry for information about Yuri and the other Cubans that defected along with him. I don't recall ever seeing this much coverage on Yuri before. Some of that is because Gamboa's career simply hadn't hit that point. But, when you think of it, Yuri's career hasn't really hit that point yet either. I think it's "50's" sincere desire to succeed as a promoter that's benefiting Gamboa.

I don't know how long ago they met, but Yuri apparently started hanging out with Floyd quite some time ago, when Mayweather and Jackson were still friends. "Fitty" had (has) an almost groupie-like interest in the sport. The two must've spent considerable time hanging out, at least in the gym. As you point out, there seems to be a genuine level of friendliness between Gamboa and his new promoter. It's kind of fun to witness, since you never really see that.

Wow. I never thought 50 would be making strides in the boxing business. We've only seen a little bit of him but so far he seems like he's a fighter's promoter. Good stuff.

Lol we're on the same boat here. Except I joined a little bit later once the long layoff started cause I was itching to find out what the hell was going on with him.

I was thinking the same thing, they seem real close and how often do you see a promoter involved with a fighter like this? As far as doing activities with them in the ring. Im pretty sure the media got a good kick out of them doing some workouts together.

I've known about Sergio since the early eighties. But now you're the one telling me something I didn't know. I'm saddened to hear that "El Mito" is gone. He was a hero of mine when I was a kid. It's strange that I put his picture up just recently (never having done so before), and I didn't even know he had died.

Mr. Oliva was a true legend of bodybuilding. Farewell, Sergio. Thank you for the memories, and the pride you wrought in me.

It's like "Cubanborn" said, "50 knows a thing or two about marketing." He's been a successful performer and businessman.

I don't know all that much about "Fitty", or about rap or hip-hop, but there's a level of fame that people acquire that makes them known beyond their target audience. I believe Jackson has enough notoriety that anyone associated with him will gain some notoriety themselves. As I've said before, when Gamboa was with Arum, he was just another fighter, anonymous to people outside the sport. Being "50's" fighter makes Yuri much more interesting to the casual fan. That's a good thing.
