Yuriorkis Gamboa: Juanma Lopez Has No Chance To Win!

By Jhonny Gonzalez

WBA featherweight champion Yuriorkis Gamboa (20-0, 16KOs) doesn't expect his promoter, Top Rank, to put him in the ring with WBO rival Juan Manuel Lopez (30-0, 27KOs), who returns on April 16 in Bayamon against former champion Orlando Salido. Gamboa looked vicious on Saturday when he destroyed Jorge Solis in four rounds. Gamboa, an Olympic gold medal winner, sent Solis to the canvas on five occasions.

Top Rank has been building a potential fight between Gamboa and Juanma for a while. If the fight with Lopez doesn't happen, Gamboa is already considering a possible move to super featherweight. Ironically, Solis was the WBA's interim-champion at 130 and moved down to face Gamboa. 

"I think that Top Rank is definitely going to move away that fight [with Juanma] because they know he has no chance of winning. I'll have to move up a division to fight the best," said Gamboa

[QUOTE=CubanGuyNYC;10292269]No fighter, no matter how talented, can be expected to tear through every opponent they fight. Mike Tyson was once considered invincible; yet, even in those days, he didn't look devastating against every last boxer he faced. Gamboa's not going…

Speed against power, but the winning factor between these two is accuracy. You can be lightning fast and not do any damage, and you can be tyson like and not land ****. Accuracy people, that will be the determining factor.
