Neither fighter is a huge name, both need to become big names, and the way to do it is fighting in the US.

Broner has the luxury of telling Burns he has to come fight him, as he's already living under the money tree.
This might be true, however he isn't currently getting much from the money tree, not enough to command that Burns chases him.

Both Burns and Broner will make very similar amounts regardless of who they fight, therefore can get away with fighting worse fighters, it's **** but it is the way it is, and unless you're willing to criticize one you can't criticize the other, well at least without breaking away from logic.
