Gamboa vs Martinez Negotiations Stalled Due To Money

Efforts to make a fight between Roman 'Rocky' Martinez (25-1-1, 16 KOs), the former junior lightweight champion of the WBO, and the undefeated Yuriorkis Gamboa (21-0, 16KOs) of Cuba, have stalled because the two sides have not been able to agree on the money. If Martinez is unable to reach a deal to face Gamboa, he might face the dangerous Juan Carlos Burgos, who defeated Martinez's rival Luis Cruz.

"They says that I'm going to fight in March, but no decision has been made on whether I'm fighting Juan Carlos Burgos or Gamboa. I am willing to fight either of the two and it's only a matter of sitting down to negotiate. I've been told that if it's Yuriorkis, the fight will happen on March 3 but I've been told about a lot of dates. I'll fight with him but I have to be paid what I deserve," Martinez said.

However, it seems that there is a possibility that Martinez, third in the WBO, will take a different course and decide to challenge the current super featherweight champion Adrien Broner, and then move up to fight Gamboa at 135 pounds.

"I'm going to reclaim the title that was once mine and then I would like to move up to lightweight, where I'll feel a lot better and very strong," Martinez said.

comment by Heru, on 01-13-2012
Martinez is a good opponent for Gamboa before a potential Rios fight; Martinez is a strong Jr. Lightweight that wants to apply pressure, fight on the inside, and land his power shots. It'll be interesting to see how Gamboa handles the pressure. If Gamboa handles Martinez as well as I expect, peop...
