Gamboa's Rep: 90% Chance Mikey Garcia Fight Happens
By Miguel Rivera
Willie Suarez, who represents Olympic gold medal winner Yuriorkis Gamboa (23-0, 16KOs), says there is an 90% chance that his boxer will face WBO super featherweight champion Mikey Garcia (34-0, 28KOs), with the fight being targeted for May 17th at The Forum in Los Angeles, California. Suarez warns that he isn't getting his hopes up, while waiting for more concrete details to come in.
"At this very moment [the fight is] being negotiated. There is a 90 percent chance that the fight will happen in Los Angeles. But I can not confirm that or tell you if the date is true, and the reason why is because previously we thought the fight between Mikey Garcia and Gamboa was set, but then it ended up being [a fight] between Mikey and [Juan Carlos] Burgos. I can not say that there is a 100 percent chance because there is no signed document," Sauerz told Carlos Narvaez.
