I read on espn where Gamboa may be facing Bradley. What's the rush? He's moved up to 130 and he's short. I understand he wants a big payday, and he does have big skills, but why not get one of featherweights to move up to 130 for a fight? There are several names in that division. A fight at 135 with Broner would be fun, once he's available, but I cannot understand why he'd try to jump three divisions. It'll be a mismatch.

Hope this one doesn't happen. I mean, what tha fuck for? What is it proving?

It's starting to remind me of Dawson/Ward. Dawson was looking like an idiot, saying that he's gonna be the next Super Middleweight Champion of the world. What sense does that make, KNOWING that Dawson is super slender for 175, so 168 was pushing it. He took a pay cut, an asshoopin', and he quit. All of that, for what?

Gamboa is somewhat stuck in that weight class identity crisis, where it's hard to find competition in his class. He can have a good run at 130, and get railroaded by Broner at 135. No way in hell Gamboa needs to skip up to 147 and take that beating from Tim.

Its bad enough that he almost moved up to 135 for the Rios fight, but to try another 3 weight classes?! Give me a break. As a matter of fact, give him the fight, let him get his ass kicked, and get him out of the picture.

He's a vulnerable fighter that's stuck in the weight class identity crisis...at least Donaire has enough skill to stay out of harm's way when he moves up. They may as well make Gamboa/Lopez at 130 (to see if it has any sense of spark left in it)
