IBF lightweight champion Miguel "El Titere" Vazquez hasn't had a chance to watch Yuriorkis Gamboa's victory Saturday night over Darleys Perez yet but says that he is very interested in facing the former featherweight champion who picked up a WBA interim lightweight title on Saturday.

"I didn't get a chance to see the fight but I knew that Perez would come with everything he had. I read that it was a difficult fight for Gamboa but that he won. I would love to face him in a unification fight," Vazquez stated.

Gamboa was an explosive fighter at featherweight but has received criticism for his performances in his past two fights which took place at 130 and 135 pounds. Vazquez is no stranger to criticism himself as he has been criticized for his elusive defense first style. He said that he doesn't pay attention to the criticism and that the art of Cuban boxing is one of the best in the world.

"I don't really pay attention to the critics. People can criticize Gamboa but all I know is that I would love to fight him. I have a lot of respect for Cuban boxing. They have a great program and produce great fighters," said Vazquez.

The 31-year-old Gamboa is promoted by 50 Cent's SMS Promotions who has worked with Vazquez's co-promoter Top Rank in the past. A fight between the two would seem to have a good possibility of coming to fruition. Gamboa has been outspoken about wanting a big fight and Vazquez said he is ready to challenge the Cuban.

"Honestly I think I am a better fighter than him. I think I am a more complete fighter than Gamboa. He always is saying that nobody wants to face him but I want to fight him and it is a fight that could be made," Vazquez told BoxingScene.com

Miguel Vasquez was in fact contacted by the Gamboa camp but they were offering peanuts and they know this is what kill it. They decided to go for an easier fight with Perez, who Gamboa was afraid to take any risk with and gave another boring performance. Even HBO wss talking smack. Vasquez will ...

As Rigo was his daddy in the amateurs in Cuban national championships and as you all saw him against Perez the cat is out of the bag now, that he can be neutralized by defensive minded fighters because he comes in with 0 Game plan, he shines the most against aggressive fighters thrives on fighter...

[QUOTE=Heru]Gamboa is not moving back to 130 until he loses and, even then, his pride is strong enough to make him move up instead of moving down. The state that lightweight is at is that the top of the division is tall. He's just going to have to adjust to neutralize the simple step back tac...
