Miguel Vazquez Receives an Offer To Face Yuriokis Gamboa

By Salvador Rodriguez

IBF lightweight champion Miguel "Puppet" Vazquez (33-3, 13KOs) has received an offer to defend his title against undefeated Olympic gold medal winner Yuriorkis Gamboa (22-0, 16KOs), who is scheduled to return in an HBO televised fight on June 8th from Las Vegas. Although earlier reports suggested Juan Carlos Burgos would be the opponent, Vazquez indicates that there are ongoing discussions for a fight with Gamboa.

"They contacted me with an offer for a fight with Yuriorkis Gamboa. The fight is not yet a fact - I'm are waiting to get the word on whether or not we are going to fight. It depends on a good agreement being reached between my promoter Zanfer [Promotions] and those who are organizing this event, 50 Cent and Gary Shaw. I'm ready to fight Yuriorkis Gamboa," Vazquez said.

Vazquez was going to have a unfication with WBO champion Ricky Burns, but the match fell through when Burns dumped promoter Frank Warren.

[QUOTE=KRAFTSMAN;13240133]They seem to be avoiding Gamboa. So far he has challenged Broner and Vasquez. He ends up with an unknown Perez. The guy's career seems to have lost momentum. He's not getting any younger. So much time has been wasted…
