Elio Rojas injured, Gamboa fight in doubt

9

Featherweight titlist Elio Rojas has injured his shoulder, and it appears unlikely that he'll be able to keep his date to fight Yuriorkis Gamboa in a non-unification "unification" bout (Gamboa can't actually unify since Chris John is super titlist). Already, Celestino Caballero is saying he's ready, willing and able to step in to the fight on short notice, and we already know that's a substitute that HBO is willing to make. Another possibility is Jhonny Gonzalez, who won this past weekend and is Rojas's mandatory. If a substitute is named, it would be Gamboa's third opponent for this fight, as he was originally slated to fight fellow titlist Orlando Salido. In addition, the date had originally been reserved for a clash between Gamboa and Caballero before Bob Arum pulled a switcheroo on HBO. (Links to BoxingScene).

Gamboa vs Rojas for title official

1

On Showtime on April 17, Yuriorkis Gamboa will officially be fighting Jose "Cheo" Rojas for the WBA's regular featherweight title. While Rojas is a bit crude, he does have wins against Celestino Caballero and Genaro Garcia and a draw against Chris John on his resume. (Warning - the link is to a site with a lot of popups)

Yuriorkis Gamboa vs Elio Rojas for Interim Title

+

I don't know that this should be a title fight, but it's an intriguing matchup of two up-and-comers for a paper title. Ahmet Oner has intimated that he'll make this fight happen, and if for some reason it falls through, Cristobal Cruz has offered a title shot to Gamboa.
