So, remember when 147 was the "red hot" division before Mayweather came out of retirement and took a big dump on it? (Williams, Margarito, Cintron, Berto, and other fighters couldn't get good fights while Floyd took the division hostage and moved up or fought no-name contenders) Also, when 126 was the "red hot" division with a promise of a super fight at feather weight between Juanma vs. Gamboa in the January of 2010 when the Mtagwa and other contender double header to set up the mega fight... except Gamboa looked a little "too exceptional" against Mtagwa... and the fight "that's been brewing" got axed once Salido knocked out Juanma and now Gamboa will move up to 135. Beauitiful! To add to that beautiful BLH Rankings list up there, we can add Gamboa and Mercito Gesta (who I think fights beautifully, has a nice right hook, and fights sort of compact, smart, and powerful like a Mike Garcia at 135).

Here's a short clip of Gesta:

And now will promoters or networks choose to capitalize on this hot division by pitting these contenders and titleholders against each other? We can have a four person tournament, or simply more promotions by Golden Boy like Latin Fury and Lightweight Lightning. This division is scalding hot, and offers expire soon! Fighters could always move up in weight, duck each other, or simply take long lay offs and get exposed. I hope this division stays active in 2012. Can't wait to see what they decide to do! Pc!
