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 think the formula is simple....put on great match ups. it doesn't matter who the fighters are when u put on a great match up. in order for this to happen...u have to have a quality match maker who knows boxing. he has to know the styles and how they mesh. he has to be familiar with all the talent out there...the up-and-coming talent...regional talent...etc. there used to be some great match makers out there...now they seem to be a thing of the past. u also need to have a cast of commentators that are savvy enough not to shit on the talent and can point out the finer things happening in a bout. that doesn't mean they shouldn't point out the bullshit when they see it...it's just something as simple as believing the glass is half full instead of half empty.

the other thing they need to do is stop promoting the shit out of fights they know won't produce what the public wants. we, the fans, know when a good one is coming up. tell me how excited u were to hear that corrales/castillo was going to happen? cotto/margarito or berto/ortiz....or matthysse/soto? these are just a small sample of some of the fights that we knew would be great match ups before they even happened. i can point to a shit load of others...but my point is...those are the fights that should be pumped up by the networks because the chances of them delivering on fireworks is almost guaranteed.

when commentators are ringside and a bout comes on that isn't producing the 'fireworks' don't shit on it. take notice...maybe discuss what needs to happen for this fighter to get to the next level...or pay attention to the finer points of boxing and point them out to the viewing public that might not understand what it is they are witnessing. the truth of the matter is....a skillful boxer just doesn't happen by accident and not all guys that are defensive are scared to hit or mix it up. most guys that are taking punches and mixing it up are doing so because they haven't been taught the finer points of the sport. i cringe at the thought of how a guy like ray robinson or willie pep would be treated by network television commentators today. they, for the most part, have no clue.

do not promote train wrecks. mike tyson was an amazing figure in boxing but over time he became a caricature of himself. he was in essence...a kid with amazing talent that wasn't fully developed psychologically or character wise. but that didn't stop the networks from sticking a mic in his face and allowing journalist to ask questions that were sure to set his predictable nature off. there is a certain savvy i expect from the talking heads to steer the topic of conversation in a direction that will further the sports cause...not destroy it. overall...the ppl involved need to be a bit more responsible and mindful. this whole notion of "speaking ur mind" like the bullshit merchant does...is not good for boxing. for one, it's condescending and insulting to the fighters. plus it turns the viewers off to certain fighters because of their lack of character when the focus should be about boxing.
