i just want to get this off my chest and let my filipino brothers know that there is more to boxing than pacquiao. i know he's fallen...but u still have donaire. i never really had faith in mercito gesta...sorry. but seriously, there are plenty of other great boxers that aren't filipino. become a fight fan...not a fighter fan. there is so much to love about boxing. educate yourselves on the sport! don't abandon it...or the boards for that matter. feel free to ask questions and i will be more than happy to help you find answers. boxing is beautiful. stick around!!!

+1, But I personally think they'll leave when he retires. Post this too when Floyd suffers his first L (if he loses).

floyd fans are typically band wagoners that have been around for a while. a lot of those guys were roy fans previously. broner is in the que for them...they won't be leaving anytime soon. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

So true, I am one of these guys... Although I am a previous fan of Ali, SRR, SRL, Hagler, Herns, Duran, Tyson, Holyfield, etc... However I do love the sweet science and always will.

This your list is so true of me as well, wiley.

As for daprof's original statement on the emerging lineage, I'm not quite sold on Broner as yet...he's quite good, but he hasn't blown me out yet, even with the DeMarco fight (to me, he was missing a lot of his punches in that fight.) And the comparison by some of that fight to Gatti-Mayweather is way out of line, IMO. Having said that, I still don't know who else takes over from Mayweather other than Broner in the current dispensation, when it comes to the style of boxing that I truly admire.
