Robert Garcia: Rios-Gamboa Would Be a Great Matchup

By Ryan Maquiñana

Robert Garcia, the reigning Trainer of the Year and cornerman of former WBA lightweight champion Brandon Rios, stopped short of saying a deal between his fighter and Yuriorkis Gamboa was complete, but did not rule it out, either.

“Obviously that would be a great fight for Brandon and a great matchup,” Garcia told BoxingScene.com.  “Gamboa’s an exciting fighter and so is Brandon, and we would love that fight.”

Rios (29-0-1, 22 KOs), out of Oxnard, Calif., is coming off an 11th-round stoppage of Englishman John Murray last month where he was stripped of his title after coming in over the 135-pound limit.  Since that fight, Rios has employed Cecilio Flores, the nutritionist of middleweight boss Sergio Martinez, to help keep him in shape.

Meanwhile, Gamboa (21-0, 16 KOs), a Miami-based Cuban who was once the unified featherweight champion, took an eight-round technical decision over Mexico’s Daniel Ponce de Leon last September.

“To be honest, though, I haven’t heard anything yet about it being a done deal,” Garcia added.  “[Rios’ manager] Cameron [Dunkin] hasn’t told me anything yet, but I’m sure it’s being talked about right now.”

[QUOTE=CubanGuyNYC][URL=""][/URL] That was an undefeated, 29-year-old Casamayor. Garcia showed some stones in that fight. "El Cepillo" was clearly taken by Robert's heart, as he demonstrated at the very end of the fight.[/QUOTE] Yup! Garcia caught the, ahem, 29 (lol) year old Casa with som...
