The May 17th HBO bout between unbeaten super featherweight sensation Yuriorkis Gamboa (9-0, 8 KOs) and WBO #2 ranked Marcos Ramirez (25-0, 16 KOs) has been pulled simply because Ramirez has decided not to take the fight. Gamboa still will be fighting on the date and the search for a replacement is on. Gamboa's promoter Ahmet Öner/Arena Box-Promotion shared his thoughts on the situation. "Obviously it's disappointing but we have to move forward," stated Öner. "The one thing I take a lot pride in is that none of my fighters have to be moved carefully. We fight the best fighters out there regardless of how good their record is."
