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.

Lol after Lance Armstrong the old "ive never tested positive so i dont even have to comment on this" excuse doesn't work as well id say Guilty until proven innocent ! But that b/s aside i hope he gets a good challenge get a few rounds in last fight he looked like a rust bucket.

[QUOTE=streetwaves]LOL playing the old "stay quiet and everyone will forget" game.[/QUOTE] Pretty much the sad reality of boxing.

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]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 he comes across Broner and gets KTFO quick.
