Glad you mention them but they are clearly all out of Gamboa's league. Lara and Solis are very solid ( more Solis than Lara ) but a couple of steps below. Jhonson ( spelled like that ) is a bit below Lara.
But I have to state something very important here. While Gamboa has probably the most natural talent and physical gifts out of all the current Cubans, he has always stayed 100% focused and training year round ( a big issue with the Cubans ) while the rest can't match him in that department with the exception of probably Rigo. So, dedication and focus is also a major role and Gamboa has stayed sharp in that area.
