To my knowledge Ricky Burns is a stand up fella who would travel to the states if he was given the deal he deserves as a champion. He would have been hung out to dry if he was talking like broner..

Broner looks to be outrageously good but he is not really a massive draw yet and is already operating as if "the usa is the home of boxing" rule applies to him. An arrogance that is indeed a double standard.

I would love to see broner over here against burns supported by a monster crowd. Maybe they should do what bute and froch did and agree to fight home and away and offer the travelling fighter some kind of protection through a re-match clause.
Excellent idea Dendy.
