I Really Like Adrien Broner...but...
I really like this kid. I keep hearing the comparisons to Mayweather but a) I don't think he'll be as good as Mayweather (hope I'm wrong) & b) I think he's a lot nicer/more fun/more rounded human being/easier to swallow than Mayweather.
And his post fight interview last weekend just confirmed my views.....
EXCEPT for the fact that he said he wouldn't fight Burns in the UK. The great fighters, the REALLY great fighters, are not afraid to to fight anywhere. I know that Vegas is the capital of world boxing but there's no greater atmosphere in sport than a UK crowd.
He & Burns in Glasgow or Edinburgh would be fantastic. Burns doesn't have the following of a Hatton or Khan to get crowds in the US but the Jocks would turn out in droves to support their man at home. I think they'd easily sell out Hampden Park and a Broner win in front of 50,000 Scotsman would be a huge bump to his legacy.
