I think Broner will be a star, but I don't know if he will reach Mayweather's level of superstardom.

I wouldn't be surprised one bit if Broner makes it that far as long as he keeps securing his 0. His style seems to be casual fan friendly too which should make things easier for him.

If that includes taking a couple losses along the way, he may be right. I'll be the 1st to say, Broner will not be able to stand in front of the banger's at 140 like he did Saturday.

Broner without a top drawer named opponent can't draw flies.Less than 3,000 paid in AC.Freebee tickets being handed out-it's all HBO hype at this point.
The kid can fight though,at a certain level.

the difference is ODLH passed the torch on to Mayweather just like he did to Pacquiao, but who is Broner going to beat to get that kind of recognition? he might become a solid ppv fighter like Cotto but not to the Mayweather/Pacquiao level

Wheres the hate fopr Broner coming from.

Hes 23, is a 2 weight world champion,fights regularly and wants to fight the big fights.

Why is it so out of the question that it can in be a superstar in a few years?
