    incredible

    has any fight ever fought any were near the caliber of fighters Yuriorkis Gamboa has fought in his first 10 pro fights , his last fight was also supposed to be against former champion eastwood

    http://www.boxrec.com/list_bouts.php?human_id=391770&cat=boxer

    the winner will probably get a title shot as ramirez is ranked 5th by the ibf as he's there Latino champion and he's 3rd by the wbo as he;s wbo america's champion as well .

    oh yeah, it's called the "spinks" treatment. Olympians getting cracks at a belt waaaay too early is also a sad trend we will see with the defectors.

    I think the trend of defectors is sadder still.

    Turning your back on the nation that made you. I find that disgusting. They're traitors.

    Odlanier Solis the hw who defected with gamboa won 2 fights in the last 2 weeks against 2 decent journeymen boxers with 15-6 Adrian Rajkai and 22-9 Cisse Salif records

    i remember seeing solis knock david haye out in an amateur and i think that was at under 200 , i'd like to see him drown to 220 - 230 or so , cause he looked kinda slow when i saw him , and against haye he was lighting for a big guy

    Maskev first fight against 21-0 fighter seventh fight against Oliver McCall 11th fight against prime undefeated Tua. But I feel his was more due to mismanagment then wanting to fight the best.

    pffff, says someone who hasn't had to live over there.

    Cuba is SUCH a great place to live that's why people risk their life to leave on fuckin rafts and don't look back. Their system turns them into brainwashed soldier athletes who aren't even taken care of by their gov't and barely can put food on the table. Even top Olympic heroes get maybe a small house, if that.

    even tho i have my doubts about their defectors becoming stars as some people tend to think, i applaud them for trying to make a living for themselves instead of kissing their leader's ass and licking his boot for scraps. It's just a pity that their families suffer at the hands of the gov't when they manage to escape. If anything, i can see people saying they're selfish for leaving their family to be punished but hey, we're not in that position so we can't say much.

    Western culture hasn't brainwashed its own into thinking any other way of life is inferior and democracy is the be-all, end-all? Of course not.

    the words of countless people who've actually lived in Cuba carry far more weight than what my gov't, schools or faceless internet posters say.

    Your an idiot. Look at the luxary life of Felix Savon. The government gave him a bicycle for putting Cuba in the public eye(not the other way around). Savon will never cash in on all the money thats out there for him. Neither will countless Cuban fighters. You can't blame anybody for turning their back on a country that has long since turned it's back on it's people. There is a permanent ceiling over Cuba that makes American Ghettos look like luxary resorts. Can't blame anybody for leaving.

    I'm a Socialist and do so greatly admire communism but I've got to sympaphise with Gamboa if his dream is to box professionally. And purely from a boxing fans perspective it's going to be great to see one of the truly talented Cuban boxers get a crack at the Professional game. I really see him having a great/dominant career.

    Back on subject, Sam Soliman was also matched incredibly hard very early into his career. So was Rafael Marquez.

    God forgive Gamboa go to a country where he can live more comfortably. Blind patriotism is retarded no matter the country. Good for him for trying to make the best living he can using the talents he's been given.
