SouthPaul says:

Like I said, a star in the making ....soon to be a PPV attraction. I won't buy it but a whole lot of those 1.4 million likely will.

deepwater says:

Now I know why I dislike Broner so much. Seems lil Broner purse snached a little old lady . lil broner snatched the ladies purse and punched her in the face and stole $40. no matter how good broner is at boxing he is scum at heart. have a feeling karma wont allow broner too much success.

ali says:

SouthPaul if alot of those 1.4 would buy his fights that makes him a PPV attraction period.

SouthPaul says:

No doubt. And remember it don't got to be 1.5 million buys to be a successful attraction . Anything over 300,000 is doing well for someone like Broner. Maybe Dino can confirm this.
