I said it sounds like they split because of the de Leon fight in the article, I never said they split because of the fight.
But I admit I was a little disappointed that fight, he seemed so defensive against a guy broner had no problem with standing in front of and counter punching.. after that fight I don't think that fighting juanma is such a bad idea, it would probably turn out to be a good fight.
Okay, I'm tracking. My fault for misinterpreting. Like Cshel, I thought it was a pretty good, tamed performance. He's progressing and more importantly, he's maturing. In addition, w/ a guy like De Leon, awkwardness and all, you don't want caught by that big wind up left of his. True, Broner fought him differently and looked pretty good doing it. That being said, maybe Broner isn't as "chinny" as Yuri has been in the past.
All in all, I don't think Steward will do much to nor for Gamboa. Like Hype has already said, he'll more than likely be rid of him after a few fights. Seems to be the pattern w/ Manny and fighters, sans Wlad Klitschko
