    Giving big-name underachieving fighters title shots is par for the course. The guy he's fighting lost his last fight too.

    So you have two guys coming off losses fighting for the title.

    The belt is vacant. Anybody CAN get it.

    Fucked, this is.

    Still, kinda explains why Broner didn't seem to upset after his last loss. Haymon ftw.

    It's boxing what do you expect, it's all about money.

    At least he's not overreaching here, Maidana and Porter were brave foolhardy moves.

    Yeah he's legit. I thought he beat Vargas last time out, actually. Stopped M'Baye which is sort of impressive since the guy is pretty durable. The guy isn't great but he's no scrub, either. Broner should win but I'm actually not angry about this fight. The Russian dude is pretty good.

    Its because he hasn't lost at 140 where he technically still holds a WBA fringe title.

    Is everyone ignoring what weight this is? What are we crying about?

    Sniper Pedraza-Edner Cherry might be on the undercard.
