Vazquez Focused on Gesta, But Eyes Gamboa, Broner

By Ryan Burton

IBF lightweight champion Miguel Vazquez (32-3, 13KOs) is focused on his high profile clash against Mercito Gesta on Saturday night. The fight takes place on the televised pay-per-view undercard of the Manny Pacquiao-Juan Manuel Marquez showdown.

Vazquez said he is concentrating on Gesta and will not look past him. He did however say that he should he emerge victorious he would like a unification fight or a fight against Cuban sensation Yuriorkis Gamboa.

"Mind my is on Gesta but yes I want a big fight after Gesta. There are a lot of good fights. I would like to fight Adrien Broner or Ricky Burns. They are good champions. (Yuriorkis) Gamboa has also said he wants to come up to 135. I would like to fight him too but I need to beat Gesta first," Vazquez told Boxingscene.com.
