What is so stupid and idiotic that was said? No one is cheering Broner on for not making weight, we all just understand the circumstance. He wasn't making weight, no reason to drain himself to try and be at a disadvantage. I don't think he is concerned at all about Escobedo, I think broner is someone who walks around at 148-149 as his trainer said in previous videos, and is cutting more than his body will allow. That is the reason for the move to 135 next. Calm down dude.
Where is the outrage for a fighter not making weight? What, Broner has a hip hop style or he's a fellow black man so people on here give him a pass? Or just say we understand. I remember not to long ago there was major outrage for JL Castillo not making weight for his fight with Corrales or Joan Guzman for not making weight for his fights. People wanted these guys out of boxing for that stuff. Fighters not making weight is just another reason boxing is not trusted by the regular public. Do people on here have integrity and can put boxing first even above their favorite fighters? If Broner was only a pound or so over that's one thing but the dude was 3.5 pounds over. He knew he wasn't going to make weight, so he said f-it I'll pull the same BS PBF pulled against Marquez. Broner didn't even try to lose those 3.5 pounds after weighing in and never wanted to try. I think there should be more outrage than the BS line of I undestand why he didnt.
