This is my line of thinking as well. Broner was going to be the draw in any of the fights mentioned by anyone so far. He'll look unbeatable again to the general public and that'll probably set up a money fight for May. Its a management move IMO. Not a bad one, but shouldn't be a headlining premium cable fight. (actually thats debatable with some of the garbage fights they put on premium channels.) Last year was a good year for premium cable fights though, hopefully they'll improve on that, and not revert to years back where it was always Superstar vs Bum to build future PPV fights.
