Hey lirva, were you that plonker who claimed to have put down a six figure number on Scott Quigg losing to Munroe? The same plonker who puts up lots of betting tips and always gets everything wrong? Ha ha if so.... You're a right onion!

Ricky will 100% fight Broner and will beat him mark my words

Can't get plainer than that really. I'm not about to start calling Burns a ducker or a coward or anything silly like that. If he doesn't feel the time is right, that's his choice, and the fight could still happen later on in 2013. It's not as if it 100% won't happen. Let's see what unfolds. If it doesn't happen though, you can say he had his chance and he let it get away. Lot of people still pointing the finger at the team or allegedly (which is understandable). Just wanted to put it straight.

^^^^^^^^

Exactly. Mayweather undercard, huge audience on TV and live...if the fight has to happen over there, is there a better time. Imagine if he turned the flash twat over as well

Default Boxnation subscribers are subsidising Burns ducking

Cancel your subscription now and mention Burns ducking of Broner as the reason.

I'm sure this has already been told to you, but in all likelihood it's FW who's ducking this fight not Burns.

Burns wins this fight he's a mega star, why wouldn't he want to take it?

I've been impressed with Broner like everyone else, but he's beatable. and Burns is no mug.

No reason I can think of Burns wouldn't want this fight.

I've lost all respect for Ricky Burns over this whole affair.

I bet Burns won't fight him on that card, they'll be another excuse & he'll probably fight Rees instead, ****ing joke

Billy Nelson has said it was Burns decision not to have the fight next on here. I can get the quote if you like.

His manager was quoted as saying Burns told him he didn't want the fight next on a Sky Sports article.

Burns doesn't get paid unless he fights....I dont understand your position. You want to hurt Burns by stinging Frank financially

Did Broner make an offer?, and if so how much?

Default Re: I hope burns and his team feel ashamed

I want to just take a moment to point out something Bunce said a few years ago regarding Pavlik-Abraham. That fight was there, fans wanted it, and yet it never happened.

Abraham was called a ducker for not travelling for it, but what it came down to was cash common sense. I know a lot of folk on here think boxers should be like samurai, fighting only for honour - but if the money isn't right (and let's be honest, without HBO there's nothing in Broner - the gate would take much more in Scotland!) and the terms aren't ideal (two months to prepare could easily not be enough for the most important fight of your career), then it won't happen.

None of us know what was offered or if there even was an offer. Richard Schaefer is not a reliable source, especially in light of his conduct towards VADA. Do you think Gavin Rees is getting some amazing deal? Or that it's not loaded with options? What do you think Hearn and Rees have had to concede to make this fight?

Rees has nothing to lose, Ricky is a belt-holder. But, it's not a surprise to see people getting so over-emotional about things. It's a ESB tradition.

Just wait, Mossley will be in shortly to tell me there are other forums.

And let's also put this out there: no one else GBP has approached has accepted the fight with Broner. That tells you something about the offer.

And Broner's fighting Gavin Rees! That deserves criticism in and of itself.
