Will Broner avoid the top people at 140 and 147 like Floyd did as he moves up?
As he physically matured and had to fight at heavier weights, Floyd Mayweather is well-known to have avoided the best at 140 like Tszyu and Cotto, as well as the top prime people at 147 (like 2007 Mosley, Williams and Cotto again when he moved up).
Like Floyd, Adrien Broner is too big to remain at lightweight for very long.
Will Broner follow in Floyd's footsteps and avoid dangerous people like Lucas Matthyse and Danny Garcia, as well as top welterweights like Robert Guerrero, and instead cherry-pick overrated, vulnerable boxers like Amir Khan and faded old fighters?

Floyds career at 147 is so frustrating. He should have fought a Mosley, Cotto, Margarito, Williams in and around 2007-08, and a 2009 Pacquiao. But they all ended wiping each other out and he picked up the pieces. Very annoying career, but I guess it was smart business.

At 140 Floyd fought the #1 contender in Gatti..Hatton was the champ and his people turned the fight down,and Cotto also turned Floyd down at 140..so who did he avoid?
at 147 he beat the #1 fighter 2 times
the #2 guy
and the #3 guy
so how did he not fight the top guys at 140 and 147
call me when Wlad FINALLY fights the #1 contender or Vitali fights the best
