Photos: Brandon Rios Shows in Miami, Gamboa Does Not

By Reynaldo Sanchez

MIAMI, FLA. - Former world lightweight champion Brandon “Bam Bam” Rios was a one man show at Versailles Restaurant on Southwest 8th St. Rios showed up to a press conference put together by Top Rank, to officially announce his fight against Yuriorkis Gamboa for April 14th at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. There was only one problem, Gamboa no-showed the press conference and now their fight appears to be in jeopardy.

BoxingScene.com had reported earlier that Gamboa was spotted in Las Vegas with individuals affiliated with Mayweather Promotions. There have been rumors swirling around for weeks that Gamboa has been associating with Mayweather and members of his promotional company. Top Rank and Arena Promotions are confident their promotional agreements with Gamboa are valid. The situation will continue tomorrow in Los Angeles, where the second press conference for Rios-Gamboa is scheduled to take place.

This dude didn't even show up in Miami which is basically his hometown. This fight is offically off and I don't expect to see Gamboa again anytime soon. Its a ****ing shame for boxing and the fans.

Huge watermarks makes annoying pictures and should be much smaller, if any at all. What's up with Gamboa. And Floyd trying to be the next "Don King."

That's BS Gamboa is a nice kid, Arum wants to fuk him and if he doesn't defend himself who is going to do it? I heard Arum offered the fight and wants 5 more years contract from Gamboa, the kid…
