The gifted Cincinnati native made it clear on a conference call that his Feb. 16 fight against Gavin Rees will be far from his last at lightweight. The WBC lightweight champion emphasized that he’ll consider moving up to 140 pounds at his own pace and won’t react to external pressure to seek more attractive alternatives at junior welterweight, despite that he completely dismantled Mexico’s Antonio DeMarco in his first lightweight fight.

I told you Broner was smart. He knows exactly what people who press him to move up are thinking. I can see Broner having a great career. He will move up but he will do the most at 135 before moving up. Also notice the bitterness in this writer, can you feel it? "Devoted of opponents?" Really? If Broner moved up how long would it take for people to find that lost "Manny Pacquiao" at lightweight who they proceed to call the next great thing and then say Broner ducked him? Perhaps try to entice Broner into lightweight again? Know these people are very knowable of the damage floating up and down weight classes can do for you. All they think about is the fastest way to STOP Broner of building a good career. That's all that's in their minds. They see the talent and they HATE it. And because they are snakes and think they're smart, they do this. /rant
