There's thousands upon thousands of fighters out there trying to be a loudmouth and get attention.

Why is Floyd the superstar? Why not Bradley? Why not Judah? Why not Hopkins?

The list could go on and on.

None compare to Floyd in terms of being a twat. Plus he is p4p No.1. And has been for a very long time.

I'm all for ****iness and in ring attitude, but it doesn't work when it's used against sub-par opponents who he is superior to in every category.

I'd like Broner to try and drop his hands and act ****y against Matthyyse - he'd get his head taken off.

Broner has all the skills and charisma needed to be a great champion without the Mayweather-esque antics. From now on, he should only act ****y against legitimate threats, not guys who he is supposed to beat.
The odds will be with him even against Matthysse and just about every fight he has. So at what point is he supposed to unleash his one of a kind charm.

He's just like you. What's the problem?

His comedy is brilliant....

What's your best shot? Response...Any photo!!

'That's a tough steak but i ate it'

'I had to see how much gas that Toyota was runnin on'

Funny stuff.
Floyd was very humble at 23. Definitely less offensive than Broner.

I don't think anyone can argue that it doesn't work, even if you have to take into account the fact that Broner has a lot of promotional weight behind him. Broner is bigger than Bradley, Ward, and Trout, and has nothing even remotely close to their level of achievement behind him.
No other nationalities pick up "Mayweather checks" unless your name is Oscar. Its q blueprint to the money. Its also a mental edge that people tend to forget. I've watched black and some Latin fighters use it to perfection. You don't have to have awesome grammar or public speaking classes to be good at it. Where I'm from its more strange if you have nothing to say to your opponents. Mental edge and money. You always get paid more when people want to see you lose. Wins are sweeter when you forecast them.

I think he just rubs people who enjoyed old school fighters.. hes not the norm just the new generation type fighter who fights with their mouth a lot.

Cant really hate since Ali did it when people hated seeing it.

I just cant wait to see Broner fight another A level fighter soon.. wish he'd fight Gamboa

Broner can showboat if he wants as long as he backs it up and stops his opponents in impressive fashion

Broner's trashtalk and charisma is very similar to Andre Dirrell. It comes off as forced.
