Rios, Gamboa erupt on Twitter

Warning: Contains Strong Language

Things heated up Monday in a heated Twitter exchange between current WBA interim lightweight champion Yuriorkas Gamboa and former champion Brandon Rios. Gamboa and Rios have some history as they were scheduled to fight in April 2012, but Gamboa never showed up at the press conference in Miami. Top Rank sued Gamboa for breach of contract, but that was dropped after an out-of-court settlement. Gamboa has recently been trying to stir something up with Rios’ stablemate Mikey Garcia, but the dispute between Rios and Gamboa has now erupted full scale.
