By now I'm sure you've heard
the talented Cuban, Yuriorkis Gamboa, has settled his dispute with Top Rank
that now makes him a free agent. What's lost in all this is that Gamboa was
really seeking his freedom from his original promoter, Ahmet Oner and Arena Box-Promotion.
At the end, unlike most divorces, everybody seemed to get what they wanted.
I'm told that Top Rank got
upwards of more than a million bucks to settle whatever legal claims they had
against the fighter (and a future percentage of his earnings too) and Gamboa
got his emancipation and is free to join the likes of Mayweather
And with that, perhaps the
fans will get an opportunity to see a Gamboa-Adrien Broner fight down the line.
