After visiting the one mutual opponent both fighters had Daniel Ponce De leon. I think Broner and Gamboa would actually be an exciting fight. Broner might have better attributes for the win, but Gamboa could give him a run for his money. Gamboa speed power movement can actually give Broner fits. Broner hasn't fought anybody with Gamboa type skills. On the contrary Broner has great power and can take a punch which can give an advantage. In that De leon fight it didnt look good for him. Gamboa didn't look that great in his last match but it would still make for a great fight and biggest fight of broner's career. This fight could actually bring the best out of both fighters. I think its biggest fight you can make right now for either fighter. Olympic style drug testing cut the BS.
Let me know your Guys take on it.
I still want to see this one, just for the record.
We'll once again see how much of a midget Broner's opponent's happen to be on fight night. Broner is just a big kid for these lower weight classes, which reminds me of Floyd fighting all of those midgets at the beginning of his career.
If anything, Gamboa needs to be first in this fight. Im almost sure that he's gonna be at a disadvantage in regards to reach and height, so he'd better make the most of his moment. If this fight had taken place when Broner fought Ponce (when he was still new on the scene), then I'd give Yuri a bigger shot.
I like this fight though, I really do. Gamboa's been dropped and caught by slower punchers, so a Broner shot would pout him on queer street. Gamboa does it to himself though. In this one, we wont see him running into punches like he usually does when he gets dropped, this time, we'll see him get hit from the outside by tactical punches.
Let me not get excited, we'll probably end up getting Lopez/Gamboa, I heard that Juanma still wants that fight...or does he really NEED that fight now. He never came off as ducker when it came to that fight, neither of them did. We shall see.
