By Mark Vester

According to Top Rank's President, Todd duBoef, a WBA unification between the organization's two "super champions" at featherweight, is not likely to take place. DuBoef doesn't believe the fight is possible because of the high financial comfort that John receives for fighting at home in Indonesia. It would take a lot of money to lure John to the United States for a Gamboa clash, but there is no demand for the fight in the American market.

“We’ve reached out to Chris John’s people numerous times for his availability,” Top Rank president Todd duBoef said in an interview with Agence France-Presse. “There has been an undercurrent of him staying home in Indonesia because of his popularity there.

“Bringing him [to the United States] would be more difficult. Right now Chris has a very good market and he’s inclined to stay home and take full advantage of his popularity in Indonesia.”

John returns on April 17, in Indonesia, in a tough fight against countryman Daud Yordan.

[QUOTE=onechance87]hes fought in the u.s a few timez already.[/QUOTE] yea i realize that but fighting guys like Rocky Juarez is not the same as fighting a Juanma or Gamboa. The pressure is on now and the guy cant seem to get it together

Chris John doesn't have the power, speed or physical stature to keep Gamboa off him. The version of "the dragon" that fought Rocky Juarez would be target practice for however long it lasts. Top Rank should be all over this fight, who cares if they have to go to Indonesia or overpay they need to i...

[QUOTE=SluggerFan]I think they really don't want the fight. Chris John is a serious threat to hand Gamboa his first loss. He even beat JMM which should tell you all you need to know. Some people claim JMM was robbed but as the article states, it was a close fight and JMM is far superior in skill ...

Gamboa is the one in the spot light where HBO viewers are concerned. So John needs to leave Indonesia and quit fighting stiffs. With that said, I think Gamboa is beatable. Just don't think John can do it.
