Default Re: Will Ricky Burns duck Adrien Broner if they both win the next fights they have?

If Ricky holds two belts then it's a fair shout that for him to think he's entitled to have the fight here in the UK. It could sell out a 10,000 seat arena in the UK and it probably wouldn't draw much more than that if it was in the USA. There's only a few American fighters who are genuine draws and despite all his hype I'm not sure Broner is one of those quite yet. I think it's unfair for people to say Burns isn't a draw here in the UK, he may not be a Ricky Hatton or a David Haye but I think he could sell out any 5000-10,000 seat arena and maybe even 20,000 if it was in Scotland.

Just because Broner has Golden Boy and a load fanboys on the internet doesn't mean that he should call all the shots in the negotiations, Ricky should only agree to go the US if they offer a him a **** LOAD of money. Otherwise Broner needs to come here if he really wants it.
