If i was Canelo, i would totally fight Broner. They are both looking for a PPV fight and it would attract big numbers. Canelo would get more spotlight than fighting Angulo or Carlos Molina. Canelo would be too big for Broner. Going by his maturity, i think Broner would agree to this fight if he believes Floyd can give him a tip or two because of the way he made Canelo look. Again, Broner thinks his Floyd 2.0.

If i was Broner, i would either go for 147 Guerrero or 140 Mattysee. If Broner loses to Guerrero. He will not be Floyd 2.0, he will be Berto 2.0 and a annoying version.

The safest of all three choices is Mattysse. It will get Argentina excited againg. Mattysse has a come forward style that Broner can counter from, that is his specialty right? If he fails to adapt then thats on him. If he loses he will forever be, not "About Billions", but "Argentina's B****"


Then again, Broner is a guy you just want to punch in the face. So i would recommend him Canelo.

Default Learn his craft or disappear

I think Broner needs to find a weight he feels most comfortable, shut his month, and better learn his craft. He should avoid the name guys for the next two fights, maybe find some tough contenders, fighters who can really help him hone his skills. Then, start moving up again with wins.

I frankly would love to see him KTFO, then disappear, never to be seen again. He is an embarrassment to his race, himself, the sport, and mankind.

Drop to 140 for a minute, his power is non-existent at welterweight.

I vote for him fighting light heavyweight division, LOL. The dark side of me actually loved watching the azz whooping.

As a Boxing fan, i dont want to see him fight again, until he is humble and acting professional. Boxing is the toughest sport and has no place for his antics. When a Boxer enters the ring that individual deserves immediate respect because they are putting their life on the line.

Broner is now backed into a corner; if he takes a fight with an inferior opponent no one will be interested since he has already been exposed, if he drops to 140 he likely has trouble making weight in a very talent rich environment, at 154 he would not be competitive. Whoever his next few opponents are they will likely be someone on the downside of their career or with very little punching power.

His options are limited and I see him going the way of Jason Litzau who came on flashy and arrogant, had a few wins over some ranked opposition, then got KOd and eventually faded into obscurity. Ironically it was Guerrero and Broner who shut him down.

Boxing doesn't need anymore classless jackasses, we already have enough of those in each sport.

I think he needs to fight someone also coming off of losses like Maybe Andre Berto "redemption match" (fitting since he is the new Berto 2.0)

Then again I would love to see him get in there with Victor Ortiz and get demolished,I guess what I'm saying is anyone with any kind of talent can beat this hype job(as Maidana proved) and I'll be happy to watch.

I think Victor Ortiz can beat Adrie Berto. He is also very agressive like Maidana and arguable has better boxing skills than him. It would make a good PPV, redemption match. It would also be an interesting All Acess show. Good smack talk. The Thing is Ortiz said is is fighting in the 147-154 lbs classes. So it make take a few years for Broner to move up.

For him? Move down and get a win.

But what I'd like to see? Probably Guerrero or Ortiz.
