He hasn't had one single offer to go over,he earns good money here,so untiul there is a much better than career best offer for him to go over there,your answer is inconclusive at this point.
But you did say that he would be seen as a joke,which is exactly the point I'm making.And I assume you're inferring that Wlad is a joke champion too?
Wlad is obviously not a joke of a champion as the HW scene has shifted to Europe. There hasn't been an American HW superstar in a long time. Most up and coming prospects are not American either and because of this, the Klitschko's are able to draw every contender to them in Germany. Nearly every other big name division is centered in America.
Burns can stay in the UK all he wants, he doesn't have
to fight Broner. He could build his name fighting domestic talent and go to America once the offer is sweet enough and he has a name. The point is, eventually, if he wants to become a star, it is HE who must travel to the US. It's because of this fact that if he were to insist that he is never going to leave home, he could become Calzaghe level at best, and it would be a joke.
Another thing to consider is that people are touting Broner as the next Mayweather. This isn't a comparison that is often made, and whether it becomes true or not, it is a big deal. No one is touting Burns to become anything close to that. Because of each fighters respective potential future, Broner DOES have a lot more bargaining power, regardless of whether or not people think he doesn't have defining wins.
