BoxingScene.com has been advised that Yuriorkis Gamboa no-showed today's press conference in Miami, where he was scheduled to officially announce his upcoming fight with lightweight Brandon Rios. The HBO televised fight is scheduled for April 14th at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.

A few weeks ago, Roger Mayweather, uncle and trainer of Floyd Mayweather Jr., swore to BoxingScene's Chris Robinson, that his nephew signed Gamboa to a promotional contract.

A few days later, Gamboa's co-promoter, Ahment Oner, disputed Roger's claim and informed BoxingScene's Jake Donovan that his client has valid contract with Top Rank.

BoxingScene continued to receive reports that Mayweather and his team were speaking with Gamboa, and sources in Miami were indicating that Gamboa was going to withdraw from the Rios contest.

It was no surprise that last week, Mayweather himself stated - "some day I want to hand the torch to another young fighter. It could be Yuri Gamboa. It could be Broner. We just don’t know, but I’d love to hand that throne to one of those fighters."

Some insiders found it odd that Mayweather would offer such praise to a Top Rank promoted fighter.

In fact, two sources have told BoxingScene that Gamboa is currently in Las Vegas, and he was spotted hanging out with individuals who are affiliated with Mayweather Promotions.

Another press conference is scheduled for Tuesday in Los Angeles. Rios and Top Rank are obviously worried at this point.

[QUOTE=bojangles1987]So even if Arum is doing something right for boxing, and making the type of fight that everyone wants to see, you're going to bash him and blame the entire situation on him. Never mind that Gamboa is absolutely in the wrong here, you see the name Bob Arum and immediately side...

Juanma *****ing about who Gamboa should be fighting and who he shouldn't is like me telling Floyd Mayweather I should be his next opponent. Juanma needs to shut his boca until he shows that he is worthy of saying anything about another fighter after he was exposed by a scrub. Furthermore, I fully...
