I agree to some degree that he is a watered down version of Floyd but HBO is finding success promoting him as the new generation of Floyd's photocopies, he did a good job on Ponce De Leon so I guess this is where most of the hype is coming from.
He still has a long way to go IMO before he should even begin to be compared to Floyd but time will ultimately tell if he belongs in the company of Mayweather, for now though it is too early to tell.
Agreed. He's just putting the carriage in front of the horse, talking about buying Bugattis and so forth. Now we ALL know that these guys dont make THAT kind of money this soon. People also forget that after these guys get paid, the following people get their cut:
1. Uncle Sam
2. Promoter (2 in his case)
5. Other assistants
6. Bills, bills, bills, bills, bills, bills
7. Children or child support
8. Family members that are suddenly financially incapable when you start making decent money
9. Food and clothing
10. Let's not forget about the mighty tax bracket that changes when you start making more money.
After all of this paid for, it's hard to believe that these guys are making the money that they're bragging about. Hell, Khan's a bigger star than Broner, and he only made $950K in his last fight, so that should tell us something.
