Talking Does Broner stand a better chance V Bogere or Abril??

We all know Bogere has too much foot speed for Broner and he will not be able to adapt to it.

Broner also, has never fought a counter puncher and will struggle with the height and not being against a shorter flat footed european level fighter.

BOTH are too tough a risk for him to take atm unfortunately!

Agreed. He especially doesn't want none of the Cuban slickness.

Beats them both IMO,but a far tougher night with Abril,although I still think people are getting a little bit carried away with him(Abril)
I think the trick with Abril is to make him come at you,and Broner has that lovely left lead but Abril would tie him up a lot and Broner would pull that shit where he keeps his head too low to hit legally in and after the clinch.
I'll need to give this one more thought but it's not a bad one to think about (probably shit to watch though!)

I have no interest in him fighting either. He would beat Abril but wouldn't look good doing so.

Beats them both. Abril would be harder, but probably KOs him and defenitely KOs Bogere.

There is no real competition for Broner at 135.

He has to move up to make competitive fights.

Outside of Abril, who really isn't a fan friendly fighter, there isn't anybody people want to see.

Burns?

Who is Burns?

Rios vs Broner.

That's a good fight. Broner by KO.

He'd actually have a tougher time with Bogere, who turned out to be a better fighter than I thought. Broner is not so good on the inside with his shoulder roll tho he does have good body punching, but if the Bogere that came in rough housing and smothering Abril fights the same way against Broner, Sharif will make Broner look really, really bad. Only reason Bogere lost was because he let off, probably tiring, but his fast footwork cutting the ring off and smothering Abril early and in the middle of the fight is the best way to fight the slick, defensive style. If Bogere fought that way throughtout the entire fight he could of beaten Abril or make it much closer. I think Broner beats both, but won't look so good doing it especially vs. Bogere.

Why does Broner keep calling him out if he's such a nobody?

Are you saying Broner is a chicken shit looking for the easy option?

If he's this adamant at fighting Burns, then I'd say he's going the Mayweather route, which is a shame considering Broner could potentially be better than Mayweather.

He has devestating punching power.

Nobody in America wants to see Broner fight Burns. Rees was a skilled fighter. Suprisingly skilled, but he didn't have the power to affect the bigger Broner.

Does Burns have anything Rees doesn't have?

Rios is less skilled than Rees, but he has size and power, which means it could be a potentially exciting fight. Besides, Broner is huge for the 135 division, so a move up would suit him fine.

Broner vs Rios ends in Broner KO, but it would be exciting while it lasted.

Can Burns bring anything to test Broner?

If not, then why would fans be content in throwing their money away?

Rios isn't on the same level as Broner in skill, not even close, but he at least has a puncher's chance.

What chance does Burns have?

I've been very impressed by Broner's last two outings,and if I'm honest I can't see a way for Ricky to win,but I do think he can make it competitive for a while as he's a far more intelligent fighter than Rees.
But I want to see the fight because I'm a Burns fan and I want him to fight the best,and I know the criticism has really hurt him and I'd like to see him get the chance to show he's up for it.
He does have the ability to jab his way out of clinches,avoid that lead left and get on his toes,but Broner is getting better and better and I'm not sure Ricky(or anyone at 135) has enough to get past him.

Bogere gets knocked out cold.

Abril, imo, presents the biggest challenge in the whole division because of his akwardness and technical skills, but i believe that Broner's athleticism, speed, and power will get him the W. also Broner is getting better in each fight.

I think Abrils Broners toughest fight at LW stylistically. He'd win but won't look as impressive as usual.

I think Abril gives anyone a tough match. Including Broner.
