Gamboa Hoping To Land Mikey Garcia in April or May

By Miguel Rivera

The WBA interim-lightweight champion Yuriokris Gamboa (23-0, 16KOs) is hoping to secure a fight with Mikey Garcia (33-0, 28KOs) for either April or May. Speaking to ESPN Zone, Gamboa said Garcia is his first choice to fight. The Olympic gold medal winner has been training with Floyd Mayweather Sr. in Las Vegas. Garcia defends the WBO super featherweight title against Juan Carlos Burgos on January 25th in New York.

"My handlers are negotiating that fight. [Garcia is] my first choice and that's who I am preparing for," Gamboa said.

[QUOTE=CubanGuyNYC;14081796]Yeah, but, let's face it, some guys have more potential than others. It's not like everyone starts at "zero" from birth and works up from there. If Floyd Sr had taught Joe, he might not have had the same success.[/QUOTE]…

I just heard Gamboa interview the woman that has set the complaint on him is the same one that stabbed him twice before his olympic games I always wondered how he got those stab marks in his arm and stomach…
