Comments Thread For: Broner on Facing Mayweather, Endless Comparisons
Until he’s able to post a few big wins under his belt, Adrien Broner knows he will have to live with the endless comparisons to Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
Both fighters won their first belts at 130 before moving up in weight. Mayweather was far more accomplished at the weight, but avoided a disaster in barely getting past Jose Luis Castillo to win the lightweight crown in their first fight.
The parallels are further apparent in this weekend’s headliner in Atlantic City. Broner (24-0, 20KO) moves up in weight to challenge for Antonio DeMarco’s lightweight belt in what will serve as Broner’s sixth straight fight on cable giant HBO.

Broner claiming he's trying to surpass Mayweather yet at this age Mayweather had accomplished for more than Broner will EVER accomplish. Mayweather is also an Olympic medalist even tho he shouldn't have since he got a gift vs Aragon but that's a different story.

He pretty much brought those expectations and comparisons on himself, I guess he would get some considering the class he started in and the fact there aren't many African American 130 pounders who are successful but he really stoked that fire.
I guess it is cool to shoot for the moon and expect a lot of yourself but that will be a very tough road to hoe.

I can't figure this dude’s objective? All he has done thus far is disrespect the sport by not making weight and flaunting it indiscriminately. Now just talk over DeMarco.
