Photos: Gamboa Training at The Mayweather Boxing Club

Photos and text by Chris Robinson

There are still a lot of question marks floating around when it comes to the career of former featherweight champion Yuriorkis Gamboa.

The Cuban marvel confused many by pulling out of a scheduled April 14th date with Brandon Rios at the Mandalay Bay and just recently it was reported that Gamboa also skipped out on a meeting to resolve some issues with Top Rank CEO Bob Arum, who co-promotes the fighter, this past Saturday.

Despite the turmoil, Gamboa’s spirits don’t seem to be broken, as easily evidenced when crossing paths with the 30-year old. Gamboa was again spotted at his new stomping grounds on Tuesday afternoon, the Mayweather Boxing Club, as he engaged in another training session while his good friend Floyd Mayweather Jr. also worked.

Gamboa has definitely put on some weight but a lot of it appears to be solid muscle, perhaps in anticipation of a possible date with Rios. Who knows what the future holds but at least Gamboa is staying close to the sport, if anything else.

Glad to see Gamboa staying sharp. But I have to say, my patience is wearing thin. I was eminently patient after the whole Rios press conference fiasco. After the recent Bob Arum incident, I'm finding it much harder to remain…

[QUOTE=KRAFTSMAN;11971763]This Gamboa dude has just put a lot of pressure on himself, perhaps unintentionally. At a time when fans are flaming mad at duckers he added more gasoline to it. Who would watch his next fight if it's another no-name…

Can someone tell Gamboa to check his messages, he missed three appointments already. [IMG]http://cl.jroo.me/z3/o/3/I/c/a.aaa.jpg[/IMG]
