Think about this fight in MSG/Barclay Center, Miami Florida, or in Puerto Rico.
Gamboa waving the Cuban flag and throwing down teh Puerto Rican flag, getting all the people juiced up.
Maybe cut a side deal with Arum to have the Salido v. Valez fight on the undercard,
Maybe a Billy Dibb v. Broner card as the main event, to setup Broner fighting the winner of the Gamboa/JuanMa fight at 135.
Throw in a ****ing Andre Dirrell fight vs. a solid 168 name, maybe someone like Pavlik. Monster card.
Billy Dibb? the 126 lbs? against Broner,the huge 135? nope
the is not bad blood between cubans and boricuas, the throwing flag doesnt work here.As a matter of fact both flags look almost identical.
everything Lopez needs is to get himself back in the map, make some statement against decent names.
the right place for this fight would be the Garden or the Miami AA arena, if the undercard is good enough maybe the new Marlins stadium.
