why is gary russell jr fighting a guy that has lost his last 6 fights
Seems on par with the rest of his opponents
I guess Golden Boy wants to test to waters to see how much Broner can draw. I agree with others that said this will bomb. I mean, they're really gonna have to stack that undercard. Mine as well stack it with Mexican fighters and gear towards that crowd
With Alvarez-Mayweather, Rios-Pacquiao and Marquez-Bradley all being PPV, and all being within a 3 month time frame this is almost a guarantee to flop. I like the fight. Overall, I don't see it selling well.
Broner is still a work in progress and hasn't done shat to headline a PPV.. This would be more acceptable if he fought somebody better but Maidana is obviously a stepping stone and has no business being on PPV. Maidana Is just a showcase fight for Broner.
i think it depends who else they put on the undercard though
Schafer said it will be huge.
"Basically, what I'm going to do is I'm going to be utilizing Oct. 26 and Nov. 2 -- those two weekends -- as buildups to our big Nov. 9 pay per view," said Schaefer.
"And I can not yet disclose to you what the Nov. 9 pay-per-view will be. But I will be holding the date with the pay-per-view industry, and I will be holding the venue with the MGM Grand in Las Vegas."
Charlo knocks out Smith in the 2nd round. He looks promising.
Vargas won a UD over Bennett (with special guest Adrien Broner, lol.) Vargas should have knocked Bennett out after the 4th round. Either Bennett has a strong chin or Vargas is not a hue puncher.
Oh shit at Wilder, he damn near killed homie with a first round knock out. Not sure if this is a good thing or bad thing for Wilder. They made this fight because they assumed it would go longer than 5 rounds at least, considering he was a heavyweight champ just a few years ago.
Broner in an interview said he wants Maidana and also called out Matthyse. Said if he beats Garcia next month, he wants Lucas next.
I watched a short 20 mins documentary in regards to boxing about fighters who are known as "opponents", "cans" the guys who show up to be beat.
It's under the series name "The American Life": Underdogs and it features two of these guys and what there life is like at the lower end of the boxing spectrum. Great watch if you any of you are interested have a look around for it I loved in personally.
Broner is in for a long night against Maidana. I would order that PPV.
If they put Guerrero/Thurman on the undercard instead of the weekend before. And also add Austin Trout vs Lara, Omar Figurero vs. some one with a 135 title, Jermell Charlo, Victor Ortiz comeback, maybe Lamont Peterson on the card, that would be pretty good.
