Mikey Garcia and Yuriorkis Gamboa exchange words

WBO Super Featherweight champ Mikey Garcia and Yuriorkis Gamboa have addressed their interest in fighting each other by tweeting at each other. 

"I want a fair contract and I want to knock out a good fighter like him. Not really asking for much." Gamboa would say while addressing some fans on twitter. 

"How much will it take to get you in the ring?" Garcia would respond. "That way Bob, 50 Cent, and HBO know what they are working with?"

The argument continued as they both went back and forth about money not being an issue and that they both want to fight each other. However both would have to talk to their promoters to get any more serious about the situation. Garcia is promoted by Bob Arum while Gamboa is promoted by 50 Cent. Arum and 50 Cent have worked with each other before and their relationship is pretty good. Garcia defends his title on January 25th against Juan Carlos Burgos. Should he win the fight, a showdown against Gamboa shouldn't be that hard to make.
