El Dude says:

OMG, the battle that is going to shake up a storm and kick-up dust in Omaha Nebraska between Yuriorkis Gamboa and Terence Crawford. The Cuban is young but he is no youngster, he comes to fight and will be head hunting like a hungry monster. "So what", says Terence, from the mean streets of the USA, AKA The Big Bad Ghetto. Terence don't mess around because he knows how to hold his ground and Gamboa is rough and tough with plenty of thrust. Crawford is a rough neck who hits like a son of a gun and Gamboa like Evil Knievel, tough to maneuver.
