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.

Its not 3 years ago. Fighters develope more within the first 3 to 4 years than any other time in their carreer. Can anybody truly look at Broner and say hes the same fighter today as he was then? And im not one of thise Broner lovers. I like the kid but you guys know what I mean.

Gamboa has no chin. Every time its gotten tapped he's gone down, and that de Leon fight was terrible. They both couldn't get off and it ended in a clash of heads. Don't know how that would be a measure of anything.

And were talking smaller guys then broner hurting Gamboa bad, if adrien hits him even once its probably over. Gamboa is an amazing athlete but he has 0 chin

And its pretty obvious he just wants to cash out now that everything is catching up to him (his inactivity, bad chin, whole Miami clinic ped scandal). He calls out mayweather (ignored) he calls out broner (ignored) he even called out lopez (ignored) something he didn't even do when the fight very appealing.

Brother seems pretty unstoppable at the moment. Sure he gets hit, but if he has the solid chin to back it up

I think Broner wins this fight, I've seen many holes in Gamboa's fights plus he got knocked down in his last bout and that'll spell disaster for him vs a sharpshooter like Adrien.

I'd take Broner by UD and a stoppage wouldn't be surprising either.

THIS!

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.

I don't put much stock into the size thing but the weight thing sticks out to me, I'm sure Broner was about 150 on fight night in his last fight so that alone will help one to absorb punishment better than someone who is lighter. Floyd was skinnier than most of his opponents back then and though taller, he didn't have the weight.

If he can get him on the inside with body shots and can avoid broner's punches it can be a long night. Chin can have case though

Broners just too physically imposing. Hes confident and alot more focused now that he feels hes on the verge of superstardom. Broner totally walks right through Shortboa.

Rees was 150 last weekend as well. You're right though, Broner does outweigh most of his opponents on fight night, but only by a few lbs. Dude is just big for that weight class. We see the same thing with Donaire and some of his opponents.

You have to go back and look at some of Floyd's old fight...dude was waaay larger than some of those guys (not just in regards to height).

I just want to see the fight because I feel the skill level of both fighters will be exciting. I like to see who would out smart who. In the Ponce De leon fight Broner didn't really make any adjustments. Despite all the other knocks against gamboa and his current situation his skills wins him fights look at your Danny Garcia or Tim bradley. Bradley has been down against Holt , but Pacquiao couldn't knock him down with two bad ankles. So forget all that chin stuff Khan made through tough as fight with maidana. I give Gamboa a chance. I guarantee all the people in this thread would watch the fight.

with gamboa's missteps in his career lately...joining 50...being named a PED user...he's placed himself on the back burner. he's going to have to do some damage repair outside the ring as well as knock off more rust. he's in a bad position right now and i can't see broners ppl matching him against gamboa anytime soon.
The Original MrFactor
This is one I'd like to see. I think Broner takes it due to his size. I think he imposes his size and will on The smaller and faster guy.

SMS Promotions taking over!!! LMAO. The LW division is already a joke. Who can Shortboa beat not named Broner that is creditable? GBP can probably match or even surpass any offer 50 can make to the Burns/Vasquez winner. So who else is out there?
mgrover
This would end in some form of round 9 tko from accumulation, or the ref calls it off. Broner wins simple

there are plenty of guys out there for gamboa to beat. he's probably the 2nd best guy in the division. broner beats him at this point...but they are probably each others best opponent to date.

There are plenty of guys in the 135lb division? Thats funny then why is everybody lobbying for Broner to move up?
mrchitown
I think Broner would KO Gamboa late in the fight. Both fighters skill-wise are a joy to watch, but Gamboa's chin is just china and the layoffs he has doesn't help him either. Defensively is where I think this fight will be decided and Broner gets the better of Gamboa in that dept everytime
sduck
Welp, I had it like 50-50 for both, but Broner destroys Gamboa, it's clear now unless evident otherwise.

key words....plenty of guys for gamboa TO BEAT. i can see him beating anyone in the top ten easily. vasquez, demarco, abril, rees....broner is his biggest test and vice versa. gamboa just beat the filipino kid who wasn't exactly widely known. he can beat the rest of those guys too. so can broner. i can see gamboa have problems with some of those guys...while broner pretty much demolishes them. that's why they want to see him move up. i'm patient. he can make his money...i'll still tune in to see it.
