Gamboa Seeks to Unify Belts

07/06/2010

Writes Dan Rafael at ESPN.com:

"Featherweight titlist Yuriorkis Gamboa will still attempt to unify belts, just not against Orlando Salido as originally planned. Instead, Gamboa will face Elio Rojas to unify two of the major 126-pound titles.

"Gamboa and Rojas will meet Sept. 11 in the main event of an HBO "Boxing After Dark" card at a venue to be determined -- although promoter Top Rank hopes to have the fight in Las Vegas -- Top Rank's Carl Moretti said. Moretti said Top Rank and Don King, Rojas' promoter, have come to terms, although they are trading paperwork.

"'We've sent them a draft of the contract for them to review and we're waiting for their comments, but we've agreed on the terms,' Moretti told ESPN.com."
