Hopefully it's someone with a banger like a lamp post, who inflicts life ending injuries on him.

His career is being ruined. He has good wins but people will look back on it and murder his legacy over the time lost.

Defining win at 130 followed by 3 disgraceful title defences.
Defining win at 135 followed by a decent defence and then 2 horrible title defences (one of which thankfully didn't happen).

I bet *****s really angry that theres no where to go at 140 citing trouble making weight. Rickys in the perfect division, should he lose to Broner then he can easily make a run at Vasquez and come again. If he wins, its huge.

Seeing as Hearn was happy to throw Barker in with Martinez, and to a lesser extent Rees with Broner..... I'm pretty sure if Brook had nowhere else to go he'd have thrown him in with Bradley.
Brook was enroot to mandatory position for ibf, a matter of months away, Why turn off down a dodgy road with Bradley and options, mandatory means fight the winner of Devon/Bailey , with no body having any options on your next fight's, Ie Walk away world champ with no one pulling your strings, Brook may still fight a unification with Bradley ( if he wins Devon) this time with no options. We know Brooks path.

You haven't answered Macho-grand question by the way.... We all knew Brook's path, what's Ricky's? ( road sweepers or super star )

At the end of the day ... Burns needs to tell FW that he wants the big fights and not accept inferior opponents to line FW pockets.

Im a big fan of Burns but he will lose some respect if he just sits back and allows his career to stagnate.

My guess would be that many are uneducated **** ends, and they believe that because he is arrogant and black he has to be good.

Did I mention you? No, so chill the **** out man.

I said many believe this slick and black shit, many get hard ons because he once asked his dad to comb his hair, because he is being made out to be the next Mayweather, many people take it for gospel without properly watching him fight.

There's new video circulating youtube, Broners sitting with Mayweather talking about money and they both start flaunting their wads of cash. At the end of the vid Broner turns to the camera and say's ''He's Mayweather im Febuaweather!''

I will look out for it, if its as bad as I can imagine, Broner will replace Jedward on my dartboard.

Burns must make decent money if he sells out the Secc and if his team feel he was getting lowball offers to go to US why should they go when they know Ricky might not be in a great mental or physical shape at the time due to the cancellation of his Defence on December if he was to fight Broner in Febuary i would have meant he would have boxed 4 rounds in 11months

It's worth the wait if they get purse parity (which Burns deserves).
So what you are saying is Brook ducked Bradley, but Burns didn't duck Broner? How does that work?

What else has Burns got lined up? I'll ask you again, WHAT IS RICKY'S PATH???

Regarding Brook is was clear cut...... The Bradley fight was for "not great money" (according to Hearn) & loaded with options. We all knew that prior to TopRanks offer, Brook was heading for an IBF mandatory spot, and Marchroom followed that through.

Why has Burns chosen to not fight Broner? Because he has unfinished by business with Liam Walsh

I'll still root for Burns because he seems like a great fella but there's no denying he wants none of Broner. It's understandable in many ways but as a boxing fan it's disappointing to see a belt holder not wanting to fight the best. It hurts the sport.
