Were talking about two young, very entertaining action fighters trading punches in the ring. Now Gamboa will sit out for a year and the fans lose out on a possible FOTY. Not good for boxing.

For the record, Gamboa vs Ponce De Leon was actually co promoted by GBP and Top Rank. It gave hope that these two egos would end their feud and start working together. Well, that won't be happening anytime soon.
I've never been on the Rios train. It would be an action fight, but I think Gamboa has way too much for him.

Plus, we have no idea what is going on behind the scenes here.

I'm not "only" interested in the fights. I'm also interested in the fighters. I've never thought that Arum was good to his fighters. So, in the short run, yeah... it sucks that an interesting fight has likely been ditched. In the long run, it is a good move for Gamboa and his career.

I doubt he sits out a year. That is a stretch.

Orlando Salido and Juan Manuel Lopez had a good fight. Salido beat JML via TKO in the 10th round.

Andre Ward vs Lucian Bute

1. When will this be?

2. Would this be an exciting fight?

Crazy fight. Round 9 was bonkers, best I've seen in a long long time. Nice shots to end the fight too.

Wow. What an incredible fight. Easily the best fight of this early year. Damn that was sick. You wont see nothing like that in Manny's or Floyds next fight. As a fan, this is what you want to see. I'm so sick of "boxers" who just want to show off their "skills" and only do enough to win. Booooring. Seriously man, Salido is cut from a rare cloth. This dude took the rematch in PR! Considering that he beat Juanama the first time, he didn't even have to travel there. Balls. But he showed up and kicked ass (unlike Gamboa who no showed a Miami Press conference that he requested in a fight against his sternest test), in a time where many guys won't even leave their hometown.

Never seen an exciting Ward fight. Maybe Bute could make it one but I wouldn't hold my breath.

Pacquiao vs. Bradley will be a good fight. Bradley said he's gonna be more active inside the ring againts Manny.

The Puerto Rican Boxing Commission suspended Juan Manuel Lopez. I want to see Orlando Salido vs. Mikey Garcia.

Martinez looks like crap in this fight. He underestimated his opponent. Macklin is a B Level Opponent, or SM is showing some sign of aging.

Good effort by Macklin. Martinez is the better man.

I want to see Martinez fight Arthur Abraham, Pirog, and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. JJC is slightly better than Macklin.
