Gamboa's Return in Play For April, Likely at Lightweight

By Mike Coppinger

BoxingScene has been advised by sources close to Yuriorkis Gamboa that the fighter is being slated for an April return, with a move up to lightweight likely. The source spoke on condition of anonymity, as they aren't yet authorized to speak on the subject.

Gamboa (22-0, 16 KOs) is now being promoted by 50 Cent's SMS Promotions and fought for the first time under the banner on the Pacquiao-Marquez 4 undercard. He defeated Filipino Michael Farenas on that night, his first fight in over a year. He moved up in weight for the bout, from 126 pounds to 130, but now plans to move up to lightweight, with an eye on Adrien Broner, the winner Sharif Bogere-Richard Abril and the winner of Miguel Vazquez-Ricky Burns, for fights later in the year.

The Cuban has been linked to PEDs after a Miami anti-aging clinic was busted and the fighter's name was found on records in the office.

I guess Gamboa wants to fight Broner ASAP after watching Ree's making Broner look like an ordinary fighter lol. I thought it was supposed to be vice versa lol Broner's all hype!

Gamboa is going to really have his chin tested at 135.

[QUOTE=Mike_R;13065054]He looked rusty in his last fight. That said, Gamboa vs Broner would be awesome to see.[/QUOTE] It won't be if Gamboa looks like he did against Farenas. He better get back into the swing of things, and quickly, before…
