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.

Chels86 I understand what you are saying bro, I do, but names draw people in. I think the casual fan could be educated if network tv did a spot for each fighter on the under card, take TNT or ESPN they can have features on the fighters. I guess we will see who is on the card in the next few weeks to come then the real bitching and complaining can start.

Names? Is Adrian Broner a "name" to the general public?! Trout?! Gamboa?! More than likely, not. To us, yes...only because we follow their careers. ESPN needs to rerun FNFs more than just once on Friday nights, and I agree, more network tv stations need to pick up boxing.

It really wont help the stations to pick up boxing, if there are just gonna be a bunch of "I'm not here to talk, I'm just ready to fight" type of fighters. It's cool if guys just want to fight, but drama usually sells fights. These fighters need tv dates, badly, but as soon as most of them get to the big stage (or something close to it), they end up looking like shit against B-level competition.

They can give it a shot. All the undercards can have their own feature 24/7 will not be enough. There are reports that Floyd is fighting Robert Guerrero according to what Floyd Senior has stated. I am not looking forward to the fight. The only interesting dynamic will be if father and son are working together again. Wouldn't that be a bitch if Floyd took his first L under his dad... It will not happen but interesting storyline never the less.
