Nothing like coming on to read some @traveller garbage. Reading these articles if that’s what u want to call them makes me chuckle. But then I always stumble across u and think to myself yes they do get dumber. Broner hasn’t proven himself quite yet that much is true. But just bc the author is as obsessed with him as u are with burns doesn’t make either of the fighters great. Just because hbo pumps up Broner doesn’t mean all us buy in. Time will tell for both of them, cause I hate to burst your bubble but Ricky hasn’t done anything monumental to this point either. But please continue to be a moron I enjoy a good laugh and your childish rants are just the ticket

Oh I had to laugh when he finally had to mention Broner, lol …. this writer is so predictable. Broner is top-quality but has his opponent-level been so much better than Robbie Burns opponent-level? … no, it hasnt. I am quite surprised he didnt manage to get Dontay Wilders name in there somewhere. I swear, once this writer gets the hots for someone, he never lets it go.

Fact …Scotland is part of Great Britain, and to call someone from Scotland a Brit would be correct, however the scots are a very proud race of people and would prefer to be called Scottish.

Anonymous@ Scotland is part of UK right? they will vote for independence, but meanwhile Scotland is part of Great Britain.

This win will put Ricky on par with Broner in terms of accomplishments and level of opposition. Vazquez no slouch.

did Burns need*

Posted February 10, 2013 4:19 pm 


First off Burns is not British.Second where is he ever hyped???If anything he is underrated overall.Third its crazy to call a world champ hype overrated yes but not in this case,when a fighter has a world belt any fighter he has to have good solid skills to achive that in his field.Forth did Burns did corupt judges when he won the title…the answer is flat out NO.

another British hype-job that can only succeed with the help of corrupt judging, watch how Vazquez gets robbed

So Burns ducks Broner to fight Vasquez whom of course is no joke but just so he can try and get a bargaining chip at the negotiation table. Broner is the truth and will prove you folks who think that he is not wrong.

Will Broner fight Rees again after their inevitable hometown decision?

Posted February 10, 2013 9:06 am 


Broner is a bum. No power no where near as fast as burns. Burns would destroy him ala calzaghe lacy and ruin him as a fighter and as a person. After burns finishes with broner, broner will barely be able to function as a person again. Destroyed to a pulp.

Broner has fought no one remotely dangerous, he is the biggest hype job I have seen in a while, he has done nothing, and had a dubious decision against Ponce De Leon.

Posted February 10, 2013 6:27 am 


My money’s on Vasquez. Burns will not be fast enough to catch him.

Posted February 10, 2013 4:33 am 


Ken Buchanan…… Scott Harrison …..and now Wicky Burns maybe the best Scottish boxer ever to lace them up remember there Scottish not English …….

Posted February 10, 2013 4:10 am 


Burns is one of the most underrated world champs today.

Posted February 10, 2013 2:08 am 


I wonder what hype-job Broner’s next excuse will be after Ricky beats this worthy Mexican warriour. Broner’s already ducked Ricky twice before, LOL!

Posted February 10, 2013 1:34 am 


Ricky is a future ATG, no doubt about it! He doesn’t need to fight doped-up hype-job Broner with his bribed yank officials to secure a great legacy.
