    One of the more exciting fighters in the game today, Yuriorkis Gamboa 18-0(15KOs) steps in the ring with Orando Salido tomorrow night on HBO. And while the Cuban defector's style may please the crowd, it does present his opponents with opportunities. Anybody predicting a upset?

    Gamboa is a beast.
    When he finally meets Juan Maricon Lopez he's gonna kill him.

    Yuri Gamboa is one of my favorites right now. I expect him to run through Salido.

    Gamboa is good, and really exciting to watch, but he can be beat. I do expect him to win tonight and would love to see him get in the ring with Juan Ma Lopez soon.

    Fight's no longer a genuine unification:

    Boxing - Salido stripped of IBF belt

    Can we write this one down to one of those "the road to hell is paved with good intentions" things that the ABC's seem to put through us ever so often.

    Gamboa is the most exciting prospect right now. I started following Jones around the same time in his career and now I find myself following Gamboa career the same way. I would bank on a storied rise to the top for this kid.

    this Perterson/Rios fight is looking good. Its starting off like corrales/Castillo. Standing there just pounding on eachother and Rios is winning the battle

    Peterson's forgotten that he can actually box.

    He's choking badly.

    I'm not liking Petersons corner, yes I know he's giving him solid advice but I think he's way too negative on the kid.

    Two low blows, that'll slow down Rios.

    Uh Oh, make it three low blows, pulling a Golata?

    And now Peterson's doing the Cotto tactic of landing a low blow when he feels pressured.
