why because you're mad nobody can beat him at 135?

Ppl on this forum needs to stop trying to rush these fighters up weight classes so quick. How about we encourage somebody to actually stay at a weight and unify titles

He should **** up the overrated Burns first and then go to 140 and make some big fights.

If anything this fight with Demarco proved how much power Broner has. Demarco is an iron chinned mofo, you can't expect him to get ktfo in a round or two. Broner was hitting him with some huge shots, that other guys wouldn't have been able to take.

Sometimes all it takes is one fight to determine a fighter is far above everyone else. Broner has said he'll fight anyone from 135 to 147. I like Broner and I'm not mad. In fact encouraging him to move up is a roundabout way of complimenting him because he's so good that he'd need to move up in weight to find competition. I just want to see great fights, that's all. I think he'll be in great fights against the likes of Matthysse or Garcia. Besides, the sooner he moves up without losing a fight, the sooner he can prove he deserves a big money fight against Pac or Floyd. Isn't that a good thing? To your credit I'd love to see Broner destroy Burns. So maybe one or two more fights at 135...

I've just watched his fight against Demarco. Broner's power wasn't so impressive. Only those accumulation punches that got the job done.
damn he just got there plus you said that about him at 130. he needs to get that belt from ricky burns anyways. broner would do well fighting fighting atleast 3 more times at 135. the shit hits the fan at 140 because its alot of monsters in that division. 135 is fine for him for now i think.

Burns, Vasquez and/or Abril before moving up. No point moving up winning titles in 3 divisions when there is other top fighters in your division with belts.

I think fighters should clearly prove themselves as the divisions best before moving up. I mean Broner is a 2 weight champion but he didn't fight the other belt holder to establish himself as the clear number 1 130 lbs . Obviously he out grew the division so it is understandable that he moved up but whilst he can still make 135 lbs he should beat some of the other belt holders.

At 140 there are a plethora of GBP great fights to be made... Broner if he is special will have the shot to prove himself at 140 and 147 in a few years.
What's up Doc !
I know what you have in mind, Broner moving up to 140 and throw him against Canelo.

I agree!

Unfinished business with Ricky Burns first though.

You can throw a shitload of punches when you're opponent ain't returning fire.

I thought he was stopped standing in the Valero fight.

Burns seems next... which is a good fight.. And i would love him to fight Gamboa.. After that i agree that there is no reason to stay at 135... Only decent opponent would be Vazquez, but he is toprank, so that's not going to happen...
Broner Linares could be a fun fight too..

He's had 1 fight at LW!!! ****ing morons!

i love how haters like this guy who wasn't gonna give broner credit no matter what are now asking for him to move to 140 when he's had 1 fight at LW!! They saw that there's no one that can **** with him at LW and they hate so hard that they need to put their hopes in dudes in a division higher. Broners only 5'7 he ain't some massive muther****er, he had absolutely no trouble making 135, if you make weight with ease then there's no need to move anywhere when you're 23, if you make weight with ease that's your ****ing weight class....it's not like he's pulling some bitch ass Brandon Rios shit where he continues trying to fight at LW several fights after realizing he can't make weight comfortably. DLH and PBF didn't even do that and they're ATG's. And DLH was far bigger than Broner. They both had several fights at LW before going to 140. You're just a hater who will never give Broner credit, if he moved to 140 and whupped Matthsse you'd say he has to go to 147 to beat the top dog there. Goof ass poster.

And Broner doesn't have big power? well I guess Valero didn't either then cause he took longer to do the job with more punches and aggression and Broner visible rocked Demarco more, put more damage on him and actually KD'd him.
