Default Re: Gamboa to be Official Challenger to Uchiyama in 9 Months

The WBA need to hurry the **** up and publish new rankings. (most recent are from November)

Michael Farenas was #8, between the Uchiyama TD and the Gamboa loss.

I wonder where he stands now...if he's close to being in position for an Uchiyama rematch by muscling past a Cotton McGuinness or the winner of Usmanee vs. Barthelemy, or is he firmly outside the top 10 now?

Settling business with him would be a good look for Uchiyama, either before or after Gamboa. (preferably before, as it builds compulsion and a point of contrast for the Gamboa showdown assuming he doesn't get upset)

Some Japanese poster provided several links where Uchiyama was talking about wanting to fight Broner on multiple occasions. Whether an "official offer" was made im unsure but if Broner's people didn't want to fight him it's not like they would entertain or discuss one, Uchiyama wanted the fight though.

I'm well aware Uchiyama said he'd like to fight Broner. Just because someone says he wants to fight somebody and the fight doesn't happen doesn't mean one is ducking. In that case, every fighter from 130-147 is ducking Broner as he said he wanted to fight them all.

Lara said he wanted to fight Pirog. I'm pretty damn sure you don't think Pirog ducked Lara.

Stop letting your hatred of Broner cloud your judgement.

Dream fight.

Let Uchi right the wrong with farenas then gamboa up next.

Uchi is the real deal, the reason broner was never number 1 at the weight.

What a great stylistic match up, even better than farenas bout & that was a solid bout.Gamboa better tighten his defense start putting his hands up more though this is quality opposition & a definite threat.Hope 50 recommends floyd sr soon especially if they're training in the same facility.Respect his dad he's been decent but it be crazy to have a top notch trainer at your disposal & not use him.

Gamboa should take the match as that will be his biggest purse.
