Curtis '50 Cent' Jackson was asked about negotiations with Mikey Garcia's team and Top Rank Promotions, about a possible match-up with against Yuriorkis Gamboa. "They are going well, both sides are moving in a positive direction." Which is great because fans have been calling for this fight for a while and it would surely bring Gamboa back to the spotlight. Many fans have missed the days when Gamboa was the most dangerous fighter in the lightweight division. Mikey Garcia has taken the lead in the lightweight sweepstakes, which has him as a possible opponent for Manny Pacquiao.
Garcia has had a wonderful career, and a great 2013, and now Gamboa is determined to ruin those plans. I have been told that the fight is 90% done for May 17 of 2014, venue and prices are being worked on. Everybody is happy and is on point for this event, which will be worth the wait.
