I actually disagree with others and dont mind the fight. 1st off Im not sold on Broner's overall ability. I would love to see him have one fight where he doesnt clown and where I could see him do something more than stand in the pocket. He's young so he should have very good legs but weve never seen it, even with his athleticism.
My thing is this though. No one should rip him until you see what happenes next. Its only bad if he doesnt do anything next. To me it could be a great strategic move. Those guys at 140 are great and use to the weight but if he beats Paulie then he has the experince at an even higher weight than them. Now if he fights one of them next, it almost feels like he's coming down in weight to do it instead of moving up.
Its like I think he can beat the guys at 140 but if he moved up right now and fought them I wouldnt be as confident in him winning as I would be if he fought Paulie at WW and then came down to 140 and fought those guys in the next fight
