Broner on a Mayweather undercard, the question is, who would he fight in such a quick turn over? I say the winner of Garcia and Judah or maybe Broner and Maidana, better yet why not Broner and Gamboa, make it happen. Just think of it, the whole 50 cent thing with Floyd as a background story and the fact Gamboa and Mayweather were actually cool and Adrien stepping in as Floyd's next protege. It has a million story lines. At the weigh ins Ray J and 50 can get in a scuffle. 1.5 million buys instantly.

The interesting thing about the youtube video of May and Broner was Adrian was actually quiet. As Floyd was giving backhand compliments Broner sat there as if he was a seven year old kid on Santa's lap. The funny part of that entire video: Floyd saying he doesn't do bands he does straps. Of course at the end of the video the hanger ons had to get their shout outs. Broner maybe apart of the money team sooner rather than later. May 4th just got even more interesting.

i may be alone on this one...but i don't think boxing needs all that wwf stuff. no need for story lines. no need for fluff. leave that to wwe/ufc. all i need is good fights. i'd love to see broner/gamboa...but i think at this point gamboa gets eaten up. he didn't look so good in his last outing and needs to knock a little more rust off before getting in the ring with a guy like broner. he still may be too small for broner. keep ray j out the ring unless he's singing the anthem. same with 50.

agreed on all points.....to me, gamboa looks to have speed and not too much else to write home about.

and idk bout everyone else but 50 Cents' entrance into the ring during the pacquiao marquez undercard made me fucking cringe FOR him. his incredible self esteem both baffles and impresses me lol

Another failed relationship in the making, the whole thing seemed forced and awkward. All that aside it will be a huge plus for Mayweather promotions if they could sign Bronner.

more or less says it all. boxing is the real deal, and real animosity and rivalry is the best. Stuff like Hopkins and Roy Jones Jr.

To have Mayweather, Canelo & Broner all on the same PPV card for May 4th I'd say would do record numbers depending on the opponents.

My guess being (realistically) Mayweather-Guerrero, Alverez-Trout, Broner-Burns ehhh would do about 1.5 - 1.6 mill

I'm holding GBP to their word of having a record breaking 2013 :/ so let's wait and see how this plays out.

Professor unfortunately we live in a time of soundbites and controversy. It is not enough that two boxers do not like each other. Look at what happen with Oscar and Mayweather, it was hype and all the bells and whistles that go with it. The hard core boxing fans do not push the sport, its the populous that do. If Golden Boy and TMT can push a fight with all the hype that a reality show can bring or wwe then that is a plus for boxing. New fans will be engulfed in the sport. It is like the state of ballet (forgive cousins for this statement) the New York Ballet Company had to take classical ballets and give them a new edge and style to bring new members into the theaters, the same goes with boxing, we need new fans. If having certain marketing schemes and techniques to bring in new fans than I am all for it. I am not a fan of 50 he makes me cringe anyway but I will say this he has created a buzz. Look at what reality shows have done for certain people, they had such a big personality and ego that people are attracted to the BS. I do not even know anything about the Braxtons but I do know everyone talks about Tamara and because of her personality she has a hit song, I will not even talk about the other cats who have made it big off reality shows. Hype sells. A sport that does very very well at selling hype is the NFL. Every little thing is a story line, just look at last year what they did with Tebow. People tuned in to watch a 3rd tier quarterback because of all the hype that surrounded him. Boxing needs new viewers, you and I of course will buy a PPV and watch boxing because we enjoy the sport even love the sport but people who can really push the sport are the fans that need the extra toppings. Its like going to In N Out why get the regular burger when you can get it animal style? Same with boxing.

Broner and Gamboa is interesting, the fight may surprise us. With Broner personality and Floyd being Floyd May 4th is already creating buzz. I would love the undercard to be just as good if not better than the main event.

No way Floyd, Canelo, and Broner end up on the same card. Those other guys make too much money and I dont Floyd leaving all that scratch on the table. Especially when you can pay someone like JLeon Love a hundred grand and his opponent 25 grrrr. Broners already at the mil mark plus Canelo got 2 mil+ for the Lopez fight. Plus you have their opponents that will be either champions or top contenders. I dont see it happening.

I wish they could get a card with Broner, Mayweather and Ward on it. I think it would be great for Ward, who seems to struggle to get notoriety despite being a top P4P fighter. Just goes to show, while you may not like the flashy persona of a Mayweather or Broner, they may be telling the hard core fans "We need this to make the big bucks in this sport."

Honestly I'm glad that Broner is on the undercard with Floyd and as stated this will help to place the public's perception that once Floyd is gone that we will still get to relish some of what he left behind in his protege'.

I'd love to see Broner vs Gamboa but I think Adrien is too good for Gamboa at this point plus he has that slick SP style that'll even things up to boot but I'd prefer to see Broner vs Maidana.

Marcos has been working on adding boxing to his previous go straight-forward/one dimensional knock 'em out brawling style of the past, still I think he lacks the speed to stay with Broner and he'd be facing a SP at that.

What I'd really love to see at this point is Floyd return to WW and face Lucas Matthysse, that would make for an intersting styles match up; the consummate Brawler vs the consummate Boxer.

But it seems everybody is ducking Lucas and nobody is calling him out, what's up with that??
