Bad Left Hook Fight Night: Yuriorkis Gamboa v. Jose Rojas

Tonight at 11pm ET, Yuriorkis Gamboa and Jose Rojas will meet for "the vacant interim WBO ordinary featherweight title," which is just ridiculous. Rojas hasn't fought in a year, and hasn't faced a legitimate opponent since March 2007, when he lost to Chris John in his second fight with the WBA titleholder (John and Rojas had a technical draw after four rounds in 2004).

Gamboa has been on a rampage since going pro and is the heavy favorite tonight, as he should be. Rojas can hit, though. The better fight might be the co-feature, between unbeaten Turkish welterweight Selcuk Aydin and fringe contender Said Ouali.
