Gamboa vs. Perez is Reportedly Close For June 8th

By Rick Reeno

Sources close to negotiations have advised BoxingScene.com that a deal is "very close" for Yuriorkis Gamboa to face lightweight Darley Perez in the HBO televised co-feature on June 8th. Based on the latest, Gamboa (22-0, 16KOs) vs. Perez (28-0, 19KOs) will likely "not take place in Las Vegas." Perez emerged as the likely candidate after Juan Carlos Burgos reportedly "overpriced himself" and BoxingScene was told that Miguel Vazquez was not a "serious consideration."

Perez's promoter, Gary Shaw, refused to comment on the status of Gamboa-Perez. The other half of HBO's televised card will showcase Chad Dawson in a defense of his WBC light heavyweight crown against Adonis Stevenson, and that will take place at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada.

Easy fight for Gamboa. Perez has trouble with fighters that have good movement.

[QUOTE=gmc_rfc_06;13233594]Man, Gamboa stuck having to fight anyone who was willing to step in and fight. Burgos backed out and it looks like Vasquez didn't want to go either. Anyway, I just look forward to seing him back in the ring…
