Default Re: What would all of the bullshitters hating on Ricky Burns have said if...

it's just the way it is in boxing unfortunately. If Broner was the UK fighter he'd have to come to the US. When was the last time a rising American star of Broners level and TV ratings went to fight a lower rated guy in England? I doubt it's ever happened. Broners pulling in bigger number then anyone who isn't Mayweather, Pac, Cotto, Chavez Jr or Canelo. He's one of the biggest attractions in the sport right now, plus he's an HBO fighter and they wouldn't even consider it being in the UK. Also Burns gets his biggest exposure by far and his biggest payday by coming to America so it really is in his best interest as well. It's how things are, not that I agree with it but Broners an HBO fighter and one of their biggest, it could never happen over there.
