Hahahahaha junior just spat his dummy again. Don’t pretend you know anything about boxing because you clearly don’t!Posted May 9, 2014 1:59 pm
3 years ago I would have went with Gamboa over almost anyone. These days this guy fights almost never against nobodys. I think Crawford will take this fight, note to future fighter, 50 cent promotions is where you sign to kill your career.Posted May 8, 2014 7:06 am
Boxing has been producing some good matches lately keep it up..f****** love the sportPosted May 8, 2014 5:39 am
Whatever Gamboa is taking it hurts him more than helps him. He’s laid up with some injury or complaint half the time. WTF is wrong with him? Terence should hope Yori takes more of that crap, whatever it is. Crawford should ignore all the PED rumors and just beat tamales out of Gamboa that he never ate.Posted May 8, 2014 2:00 am
Good fight but Crawford needs to have Gamboa tested for that concoction of various PEDs that Florida drug tank Biogenesiswas giving him.Posted May 8, 2014 12:15 am
gamboa will still be around in 5 years. still kicking tires as always, and looking like he could be the best if he ever got his schtick together.Posted May 8, 2014 12:03 am
i’m fatigued with waiting for Gamboa to emerge from the pack. he’s actually got space to make up and displays no urgency to campaign for serious contention in a division. any division(?!). once-a-year for a 32-year-old(?!) ain’t cutting it for me. he either displays some breakaway talent or he can forget about anybody remembering him in a year.Posted May 7, 2014 9:49 pm
@Who knows.., You’re the idiot.. Who gives a crap if nobody knows who’s going to win? That doesn’t mean they don’t know who’s likely to win — and it doesn’t mean their analysis isn’t dead on the money or pretty damned close.
If you lack the courage and expertise to pick winners, don’t try. Easy solution.
BTW.. Although nobody knows for sure who’s going to win any given fight, if you’re a manager or matchmaker for one or more professional boxers you better match them right… They’re not going to make a lot of money if you have zero expertise in experience, styles, and matchups.Posted May 7, 2014 4:02 pm
Good fight. I agree gamboa should not be at that weight, but still it should be a good one..
CRAWFORD WANKERPosted May 7, 2014 2:06 pm
@curtley – “but the guy seems lazy and is turning into a wasted talent. To me he is fighting far above the weight he should be”
Fully agreed that he’s far above the weight he should be at. He looks too “thick” now and I think he kind’ve looks a little too “rigid” in his motion now (though that might just be an illusion based on him being built like a rectangle).
That said, I don’t know that he’s lazy so much as now being promoted by someone who doesn’t really seem to know what he’s doing or how to get fights put together.
@manoblair – “GAMBOA LOSES THIS ONE. MOCK MY WORDS!!!”
Ermm, mock them? Okay, if you insist.
What a cracking fight, I thought Gamboa would have been pushing for P4P number 1 by now when he first went pro but the guy seems lazy and is turning into a wasted talent. To me he is fighting far above the weight he should bePosted May 7, 2014 8:47 am
To all the people who wrote Crawford wins or Gamboa wins, you are idiots. If you don’t have an intelligent comment to make, please don’t write anything. This is boxing, no one knows for certain who is going to win so please let’s use ESB comment section for something true boxing fans enjoy reading.
By the way PEEJ is the worst, he picked Collazo to win over Khan.Posted May 7, 2014 7:31 am

Scott look back at the betting odds pal. Donaire was a HUGE favourite to win that fight, and thats a FACT. That fight cemented Rigos reputation. Before hand there were questions about wether or not he could be as good a pro as he was an amateur.Posted May 7, 2014 5:41 am

Lol donaire beats rigo??? That was over as it was announced. Rigo finest pure talent around factPosted May 7, 2014 3:17 am
But junior thwy were outcomes a 2 year old chimp would have got rightPosted May 7, 2014 3:15 am
Anonymouse, as weve gone over before, i was wrong about Cleverly/Kovalev, Burns/Crawford, and Donaire/Rigo. Thats some long list aint it!Posted May 7, 2014 2:00 am
LISTEN UP CLOWNS!!! GAMBOA LOSES THIS ONE. MOCK MY WORDS!!!Posted May 6, 2014 10:29 pm
Hopkins was beat by Jones SO Gamboa has a slim chance here. Crawford has the GREATER chance. IF its anything close to even money bet your money on Crawford.Posted May 6, 2014 8:29 pm
Crawford stops Gamboa unless Gamboa runs all night and does not engage. Then Crawford wins by decision.Posted May 6, 2014 7:41 pm
Gamboa has a superior foot movement, greater punching power, is the more active fighter in the ring, throws a higher volume of punches, and the experience he posseses will make a big difference in this fight. And by the way, ¿do you know how many sparring session Gamboa and Rigondeaux have had in the past? There is nothing new that Crawford brings to this fight, that Gamboa hasn´t seen before.Posted May 6, 2014 7:19 pm
This is a great fight… I think Crawford will outbox Gamboa, but he best not get too flamboyant at any time.
TC lacks power, just like Floyd Mayweather lacks power. Gamboa’s speed and power are unreal, but he can be outboxed and outsmarted by a crafty technician.Posted May 6, 2014 6:53 pm

Gamboa is going to be outclassed.Posted May 6, 2014 3:40 pm
jumior once again gets it wrong, he has a long history of picking the wrong winner. Crawford will win on points.Posted May 6, 2014 3:38 pm
Crawford winsPosted May 6, 2014 3:35 pm
Yeah I would have prefer Mikey but I’m not going to complain. Fights like this should be made more often.Posted May 6, 2014 3:28 pm
What happen to Mickey Garcia??? Was he not supposed to go fight Gamboa???Posted May 6, 2014 3:01 pm
Blacker, I do appreciate the finer points of boxing, as I appreciate the points you make in your post. However I found that when Crawford switched to orthodox against Burns he looked terrible. In that fight I also felt that Burns threw the fight away with inactivity. Now maybe Crawford madeBurns look that bad because of his aawkwardness. But I would put it down to the fact that Burns had been on the slide in his last 3 fights and looked a shot fighter. And I still wasnt impressed with CrawfordPosted May 6, 2014 2:22 pm
Good fight…Gamboa has the background and skill set…Crawford not as tested,still unknown to a point.My pick would be Gamboa,a guy who is the real deal!!!Posted May 6, 2014 2:14 pm
Killing Moon The Soothsayer
Interesting fight…Crawford is quite unproven (Yeah, I know Burns..But c’mon..) and Gamboa might have some ring-rust.
If Gamboa wins it will show he was everything, he always seemed to be..(Which has been questioned)
If Crawford wins, he’s catapulted into Stardom..(To have even a ud over Gamboa makes a career)
Either way this is win/win for the boxers and the fans…So gotta say it’s a fantastic match-up..Posted May 6, 2014 1:14 pm
Crawford beats Gamboa in this one. He’s on a roll and is getting better. He can match speed and technical boxing with Gamboa, and his ambidextrous fighting style will make a big difference. Crawford is young, hungry and handles the spot light well. He’s the next fighter in line to dominate.Posted May 6, 2014 1:12 pm
sean p h
50 50 fight. Think gamboa has the experience and power speed and punchs to take care of crawford. But who knows till they mix it up.Posted May 6, 2014 1:00 pm
Junior, its easy to not be impressed with a very technical fighter. Crawford’s ability to judge distance is his greatest asset and something no one can teach. He can see punches coming and steps back in time to avoid them. Very aware of distance, good lateral movement, and head movement; a very good arsenal of text book punches, plus the ability to adjust. I am very impressed with the guy.Posted May 6, 2014 12:32 pm
Nice.Posted May 6, 2014 12:29 pm
YES!!!!Posted May 6, 2014 12:18 pm

This fight is very very very good because the two are evenly match! You’ll never gonna know what’s gonna happen.Posted May 6, 2014 12:06 pm
This should be the mayweather mosley early 2000!Posted May 6, 2014 12:00 pm
Good match up styles make fights the question i have is gamboa can he close that distance with some fast footwork if he can he can give major problems ..crawford more boxer will try to keep it long seen his fight did not look greatPosted May 6, 2014 11:46 am
Gamboa has not been fighting, he could have some ring rust, he might be a gym rat so we shall see.Posted May 6, 2014 11:38 am
Im kinda surprised at the reaction here. I think its a good match up but i wasnt impressed with Crawford when he beat Ricky Burns. Gamboa on the other hand is a beast IMOPosted May 6, 2014 11:29 am
Great fight, and a tough one to pick,
Due to the styles involved, this will be more of a technical fight than a free swinging brawl. I’ll take Crawford by UD.Posted May 6, 2014 11:18 am
Wow, what a fight. I like Gamboa as a fighter, however Crawford is one of the best young Technical fighters in the game today. His fundamental skills are A++, and can switch from Orthodox to Southpaw. I’l pick Crawford to give Gamboa his first loss by decision.Posted May 6, 2014 11:13 am
Can’t waitPosted May 6, 2014 10:58 am
Looking forward to this fight.Posted May 6, 2014 10:48 am
