Burns, at this stage, needs Broner a lot more than the other way around.
If Burns was the hot shot with a belt, I'd change my tune.
Are you suggesting that Burns is not a legitimate champion Jeff?
If Ricky gets a good offer, Im sure he 'll tell his promoter he wants to go.
But as I said,we could argue that if Broner really wanted Burns,he'd travel.
It's bullshit to say it's OK for Broner to say it but not Ricky.Broner has one fight at the weight.Because Burns is still unknown over there, it doesn't mean he should become an "opponent" so to speak.
