Default If Ricky Burns beat Miguel Vasquez and Adrien Broner...

... if Burns won two unification bouts in a row against Vasquez and Broner (won fairly on points), would he be one of the top ten best British boxers of all time??

And would you put him in today's P4P list if he beat both?

He should def be on any p4p list if he wins against both. It would be incredible if he did, thinking where he has come from and the stick he has received (especially on here) over the years. Hopefully his handlers let him do the Broner fight.

He will not be getting past Miguel Vazquez nevermind Adrien Broner.

Unless of course Billy Nelson masters up some master strategy to somehow beat Vazquez.

Vazquez is vastly underrated and an elite operator, just look at the blokes resume, he has fought some of the best. Canelo, Tim Bradley, he has lost 3 times on points, twice to Canelo and once to Bradley. Ricky Burns aint even in that class, and he certainly aint fought anyone of the calibre of Miguel Vazquez or the fighters he has faced.

Vazquez is on a 12 fight win streak. Never been stopped. His last loss came to Canelo in 2008, where he lost a 10 round UD. He lost a 10 round UD against Bradley in 2007 and lost his first fight as a pro against Canelo in a 4 round SD.

DO NOT underestimate Vazquez. He is a very very very very good boxer.

This is just another Kell Brook vs. Devon Alexander.

Vazquez WILL win
Alexander WILL win

Your playing with the big boys now guys......mind the gap.

It's ****ING HUGE!
