To be fair, he was competing against the far superior PPV with Chavez Jr. vs. Martinez on the same night. I don't really think those numbers are indicative.
Broner did 1.4 with Escobedo, but in a world title shot against DeMarco who is probably more known and was the more competitive opponent he did only 1.1... So either people got annoyed with Broner and did not decide to watch or the Escobedo fight was just fluke numbers.
HBO will be giving Chavez Jr. any fight he wants when he puts in numbers like that.
