Promoter Pepe Gomez of Cancun Boxing is attempting to put together a fight between Yuriorkis "Cyclone of Guantanamo" Gamboa (23-0, 16 KOs) and WBC featherweight champion Abner Mares (26-0, 14KOs). Mares said he was willing to face Gamboa on the condition that their fight takes place in Cancun, Mexico. Gamboa has very little interest in facing Terence Crawford and wants an established name with meaning, like Mares - who defends his title against Jhonny Gonzalez on August 24th.

"I am willing to fight Mares at a selected weight. He's at 126 pounds and he could move. I'm at 135 pounds, but I'm willing to go down. I think the proper weight to have this fight would be at 130 pounds," said Gamboa.

Mares replied.

"I accept the challenge. I'll face him, but I want the fight to be in Cancun, that's my only condition," Mares said

Gamboa said the location is not a problem.

Both fighters plan to be at Cancun Boxing's next event on August 17th as guests, where Gamboa plans to call Mares out.

"I'm ready to face him in Cancun. We just need to set the date and it will be a great privilege to fight in this beautiful city which has become a major international boxing venue. I know Abner is also coming here as a guest for the function on August 17 and that makes me very happy because I will also be here at that time and I will take the opportunity to challenge him face to face," Gamboa said.

I gotta respect Mares for having tough fight after tough fight. The kid is always testing himself. I appreciate that. With that being said. I think Gamboa takes this one.

[QUOTE=BendOver]No he didn't he couldn't touch him[/QUOTE] LOL I just re-watched the first round and the HBO crew is giving PDL credit for outlanding Gamboa and negating the speed advantage : [URL="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9w9ouh81uCA&feature=youtu.be&t=8m55s"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?...

To all the Mexicans. I always hear how Mexicans love great offensive fighters and hate fighters that counter puncher and move around. I even heard that some Mexicans rooted for Pacquiao when he had his clashes with Juan Manuel Marquez for those reasons. Does that mean Mexicans love Gamboa? Who wo...

Gamboa imo can't make 126.

Gamboa looked solid at 135, but he's a fuckin midget so him wanting to fight a FW shouldn't be a surprise. Yes, he would out-weigh Mares, which is why I don't think he should take the fight right now. Crawford vs. Gamboa? seriously?? Gamboa doesn't have the size for 135, so why would anyone w...
