As for Martinez.... ugh.
Broner would execute him. If Burns had had more confidence and experience at the top level he would have stopped him. Probably ought to have done anyway but smartly decided to play it safer and get the W.
agree with your first point BB, disagree with your second! However, I wont lose any sleep over Martinez chances against Broner, Im too busy trying to work out if Burns can solve the problem...
I must admit though, Broner impresses me greatly & uncle Frank NEEDS to get Ricky this fight. Win or lose, Burns deserves his chance to fight HBO's new superstar... maybe we could even get a 24/7 out of it!
Dunkys dream, to see a scotsman on 24/7.
