Has Broner come at a bad time?
Ya I know this is another Broner thread, but i'm not a fan or hater so i'm hoping the thread might have some decent debate.
Mayweather gets a lot of his exposure from HBO by being labelled as the best P4P in the world, much like Pacquiao did. The celebrities of the world go to watch the best fighter in the business - its just what they do.
So if Broner aspires to "take over" the sport, he would need to be P4P the best in the sport right?
Well i'm not sure how hes going to do that. Andre Ward is here, he's young and also has a long future ahead of him. He's literally dominated a heated division without hardly breaking a sweat. HBO already call him the 2nd best American fighter, and Mayweather isn't going to be around much longer. This, then makes Ward the heir to the throne.
And I really can't see anyone who is going to beat Andre Ward, at 168, 175. Ward won gold at Light Heavy. If there's noone in sight to even bother Ward, how is Broner going to take over the sport as Mayweather is supposed to have done.
Can you be the "face of boxing" without actually being the best fighter in the game?
