Default Re: Does Broner have a tougher climb ahead in opposition than Mayweather

My point is, it will be difficult for Broner to become a PPV megastar with a padded record he will really need to prove himself in challenging situations.

I'm a fan of Mayweather but his opposition picking has always been smart in the sense he and the public always knew/felt he would win. With Broner it won't be as easy to get away with fighting guys that are tailor made for him especially if he want's to become the next big thing in boxing.
Gamboa is still at 126. Do not see that happening, although that right there may very well be the scalp he could get in terms of the most skilled opponent. Marquez will be pushing 40 so wouldn't be a good win but nice name on resume. Garcia and rios are prolly going to be Broner's corrales and castillo.
