I don't like all these no-hopers that Broner is fighting. Time for him to step up his competition! List contenders and other champions that you would like to see him fight and predict the results. When Adrian steps up, we can better gage his abilities.

Well he tried to make a fight with Burns but Burns is fighting IBF belt holder Vazquez. I think after Abril's fight for the vacant WBA Belt, Broner should fight Abril. I'd also like to see Broner fight PEDboa. But honestly Broner is out of everyone at 135's league and no one with a belt is a Top Stank fighter, with that being said there's no reason why he shouldn't be an undisputed champion at 135 by the end of the year/top of 2014. I'd like to see him get everyone with a belt. But the most dificult fight I see him winning at 135 is against Abril. Down the road is love to see Broner vs. Mikey Garcia. And when Broner jumps to 140 which I feel will happen in 2014 then the real fun begins..

I think Broner would likely always take a decision against Abril. It could be another Brandon Rios type situation. There's just no money in the slick elusive Abril winning on the cards against a pom-pom network or big promoters fighter. Stylistically Abril could be a problem for many. Richard just won't be treated fairly by most judges. HBO is looking for the next "potential star." and they see that in Broner, and this could influence the judges.

I would love to see Broner-Garcia!!! Big paydays for the winner, and a potential rematch of what could be a thrilling fight!

I agree with you on Broner vs Garcia. I think that fight happens the minute Broner vacates and moves up. No tune-up fight at 140. Not worth the risk. Broner vs Garcia could be a PPV fight.

Since when is demarco a no hoper..?

He tried to make fights with burns abril, he even told guerrero to shut up and send him a contract. But that division isn't so great. He would probably knock Gamboa out, I really don't know who he could be fighting at 135 other than abril or burns.

I will grant a pass on the Demarco fight. You know, in thinking of the nobody set for Broner on HBO, I had forgotten about Broner's dominating win over Demarco. This was good.

Yea I have no clue who reese is. But I mean the division is extremely weak, and he tried to make fights with some of the top guys.. hbo is just padding his record so that once he hits 140/147 he can be a big draw or even a ppv star.

Maybe he and marquez can get it on if marquez doesn't find an opponent later in the year

Broner and Marquez would be great! I would take Marquez to win!

problem is...broner is just that good. he won't find any real challenges at 135...and by the time he gets to 140....they may all be at 147 by then. all he can do is start to collect belts and hope that someone develops into a real challenge in the near future. i don't see any.

Really? I think if the weight isn't an issue it'd be a like Mayweather vs Marquez all over again.

Why not Broner vs Pac? Everyone is talking about every other fighter having an opponent exept Pac, he has 2 loses in a row and he needs someone with credibility and a name to begin some sort of comeback. Personally, I think if Bradley can make Pac miss all night that the faster more defensively sound Broner will make him miss and make him pay and I wouldn't be surprised if he knocked Pac down or even out at this juncture in Manny's career.

it's TOO soon to say that Broner would dominate Marquez in the fashion that Floyd did. yes i know it was a while back, but remember the fight against Ponce De Leon. TOO soon. I Give Marquez the edge. People underestimate marquez but he's not a walk in the park. And Floyd fought a Marquez that Moved up from 135. the Marquez of '09 is NOT the marquez of 2012. if Marquez brings that power down that he developed at 147 ain't no telling how Broner-Marquez would go. Broner would need to outbox Marquez which idk if he can do. Like i said we haven't seen Broner in enough fights against QUALITY opposition. Lets see how he does against Abril first before we speak of Broner-Marquez in the same breath. But i can say one thing, BronerMarquez would not be the cake walk that Mayweather-Marquez was.

I LOVE this fight. This fight sounds interesting. It could turn out either way. Pacquiao would put the pressure on Broner and Broner has never been in a position in which he really had to use his legs. He doesn't move around. he Just stands right in front of you and punishes you but with pacquiao i dont know if this style would be beneficial. I'd give the slight edge to Broner in this one due to boxing ability.. but one thing we'd also have to consider is that the fight would be taking place at 147. It's too soon to say how Broner would perform at that weight class. Everyone always says Broner is big and he can do well at virtually any weight class up to 147 but has anyone ever seen him fight above 135? I can't stand when ihear nonsense like that. broner-Pacquiao would be a question of Broner bringing his power with him to make Pacquaio respect him. But when you're accurate and timely, power means nothing..

I agree that its too soon to put broner over marquez.

But broner can move, he just chooses not too. Watch the Litzao fight (the whole one round lol)
I wouldn't mind seeing that either but I would rather see the marquez fight because I think marquez still holds a belt in the 135 division.

Broner vs Bradley...

It's just the contrast of styles I think
