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?
All brother HBO boxers do that crap. Berto,Mayweather, Broner they're making boxing into a joke

Broner is 23 yrs.old. He's already a 2x Division Champion. He just defeated Antonio Demarco last year.


I love to see him fight Miguel Vasquez and Ricky Burns this year.

What a terrible question~

The question is, does it matter what Broner actually does because people will harp on what he didn't do?

Judging by this thread I would say the answer is it doesn't matter what Broner does his fate is preordained to many. Good thing for him though is that those people don't really matter and will only make him more famous.

You forgot about the part where Floyd fought the former lineal and then lineal champ at 147 and when Floyd fought Mosley when he was the Ring Welterweight champion when Pacquaio refused to face Mosley unless the fight was at 144 because Mosley was "too good" to face at 147.

You also forgot the part about Hatton refusing to face mayweather at 140 because he was "not ready".

Finally you forgot the part about Cotto being in attendance for Gatti-Mayweather in preparations for a Floyd fight at 140 and him running away scared after seeing Floyd's virtuoso display and Cotto stating that he never pursued a Floyd fight until he left Arum and it was made at 154 by GBP.

Broner will likely try to avoid the tough fights but if he is forced to face a top guy at 140/147 all he has to do is survive and not get KO'd...................he WILL get the decision. Haymon is his manager, that's all he needs.
