By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

Robert Garcia, trainer/older brother of WBO featherweight champion Mikey Garcia (31-0, 26Kos), is confident his boxer has what it takes to not only defeat Olympic gold medal winner Yuriorkis Gamboa (22-0, 16KOs) - but to secure that victory in style. Following Saturday's win over Orlando Salido, Mikey challenged Gamboa to a showdown - and Mikey is willing to meet the Cuban boxer at the super featherweight limit of 130-pounds.

Mikey beat Salido in far more dominating manner than Gamboa, who came off the mat to drop Salido twice to earn a twelve round decision a few years ago. Mikey dropped Salido four times before the match was stopped in the eight round due to and injury, and Garcia won a technical decision.

"Gamboa is a tremendous fighter. He has tremendous speed and tremendous power, but he's also beatable. I think Mikey's speed, skill, power - could be enough to dominate someone like Gamboa and it would be huge. Gamboa fought at 130 for his last fight, so [Mikey] could meet at 128 or even 130 and we'll be more than happy to take it," garcia told BoxingScene.com.

[QUOTE=Southpawology]Garcias toughness is questionable and could be the crack in his armor. What if gamboa breaks his nose with a punch? how will he react?[/QUOTE] I expected Mikey's toughness to be tested against Salido, but the fight was stopped before the final exam.

[QUOTE=CubanGuyNYC]This is an often cited thing about Gamboa. Yuri is cocky, so he likes to showboat against lesser opposition. That's partly why he's been dropped a few times. Gamboa is also reckless, at times, due to his hyper-aggressive style. But Yuri is smart. He knows when he's in there aga...

[QUOTE=Big Dunn]Gamboa is a real good fighter. But his tendency to leave himself open and drop his hands is going to be the death of him. If Mikey gets him to move down in weight, I'll take Mikey by KO. If Mikey moves up, I'll take him by decision. SMartest thing Mikey ever did was admit he wa...
