Default Re: Is Ricky burns terrified of Adrian broner?

Now im pissed off. VERY pissed off with this whole situation. Firstly, I wanted to take a break from posting on this forum until next year, to sit back, take stock of things & recharge the old batteries as it were.

This Burns Broner thingy though? It just WONT go away, will it... & it so easily could, if Ricky Burns just came out & said something, is it too much to ask of him? A simple quote? Ricky has a loyal fanbase, he can shift nearly 10,000 tickets for a big fight, is it too much to ask that he keeps his loyal fanbase informed of whats going on?

I mean, Rickster must know people are asking questions, cos his trainer Billy Nelson is always kicking about here smacktalking with the trolls, & ignoring the more sensible posters questions here for starters.

I just want to hear what Ricky Burns has to say, as a paying customer I think Ricky owes us an explanation, is that really too much to ask?

Right where he wants to be, fighting british level in bogus title fights at home.

@DF Taylor

Broner could be long gone come May. Broner is the star & it wouldn't surprise me if GBP turn to Ricky later on & say... "You had your chance"

He had a chance to be the ****ing man and launch himself into the big time. For whatever reason he passed up on that opportunity. He might get another one or he might not.... I just don't understand why you would take that risk

Im debating the offer that was "supposedly" made because thats the most pertinent part of this whole ****ing saga.....Morrison said that Burns wants 400K net Schaefer said it was too high...end of fight, end of ****ing debate. Even if Burns said that he wanted the fight in February it wouldn't happen because of the purse demands. Jesus, is it actually too hard for people to grasp?

But he didn't want the fight, so he priced himself out

So that's it then?

Burns asks for 3/4 times more than his highest ever purse and that's acceptable if it means he never gets to fight Broner?

If & when Matchroom sit down to discuss Brook v Khan, I hope they ask for a 60-40 split and options on Amir.

When Khan turns round and says no.... We can all say. "end of fight, end of ****ing debate"

Absolutely not.....I just dont think that 400k net is that much to ask, its not about pricing yourself out of a situation, its maximising your value. I wonder how much Boner would be getting.

There is so much I want to say on this subject Doyle, but I am keeping my powder dry for now, until the full facts are known. Ricky's silence is deafening, Uncle Frank IMO still wants the Broner fight. Alex Morrison is the worst thing to ever happen to scottish boxing as hes clueless but eveyone in scottish boxing is scared of him cos he acts the gangster, is Rees REALLY fighting Broner instead?

The dust needs to settle a bit more on this mess before we can make our minds up. We need a quote from the man himself, Ricky Burns to clear things up one way or the other.

If that's 400k net in sterling, that's a ****ing lot. Especially if we are talking net net... I.E not just after tax, but after trainer & management fees etc.

Effectively Burns is asking for $1,000,000

No way is Broner making a million dollars a fight Icemax you're arguing over nothing anyway, Ricky Burn's trainer has already said whatever they offered Burns was not fighting in February
