There are a few people here who clearly have no idea how boxing works for non-HBO superstars and I didn't have you down as one of them.
If Ricky fights Broner he'll need a 12 week preparation and his head isn't right with all the ****ing about for Saturday.
Why is Broner having any problems getting an opponent for Feb?
And as someone pointed out,Ricky's promoter is terrified of Ricky performing well on HBO,as every time that happens he loses his fighter,and for those unfamiliar with the way things work, promoters still have a say in what their fighters do.
Because no one wants to fight him. Guys like Ricky Burns need 3 months to prepare for him. It's not easy at this stage of his career for Broner to find quality opponents.
