Dudes are saying Broner’s going to 147 to fight Paulie. In other words, bypassing a deep 140 lb division and the likes of Lucas Matthysse tto face someone who can’t punch out of a wet paper bag. I’m opposed to that cherry picking approach to match making but at least he’s facing world class boxers. Russell Jr is almost in no man’s land. They keep this up and they’ll stunt his development and his physical talent will peak without him proving it against a worthy opponent.

Russell was calling out Juanma that would be a good test for him.

What a dirty fighter APRIL is he makes Casamayor look like a clean fighter

Bogere had to fight with his head, he had to close distance, he had to get inside, stay inside and make it an ugly fight. He had to to do this to negate Abril’s superior, height, length and boxing skills. That’s not not dirty, the bum rush is not dirty, although it leads to the accidental butt, it is not dirty!! Bogere couldn’t win that fight from the outside in a million years. He was just giving himself his best shot at getting the win.

Yea FA, broner has raced ahead but this Rusian wasn’t all that bad. Granted, can’t crack an egg but went 12 solid rounds with Burgos!! His biggest mistake was that he was scared of Russell…u could see it at the weigh in – looking at the ground, limitd eye contact. Even though he’s clearly been brought along too slow, Russell’s upside is still MONSTEROUS!!

Hard to believe just a couple years ago Russell and Broner were on par as prospects. Since then Russell Jr’s comp has remained atrocious and Broner is now a title holder. Showtime should not televise these garbage fights. Make him fight someone decent or put him on the off-TV card, where he belongs.

You don’t know if Russel is any good yet, need to put him with someone who also has talent & power. Bogere is a fighter who should be suspended for a long time, what a billy goat. If I was a fighters manager Bogere would be out as an opponent, accidental head butts are part of his offense nothing accidental about them. This referee was marginal at best, should have taken a point on the 3rd bull rush & possibly it would have been a better contest.

yeah it would be good to see how Broner did against the taller awkward Abril.

Does SHO like these dirty fights? Where do they get these referees? Most fans still want to see some skilled boxing, not street fights. Abril vs. Broner would be an excellent match up, but with rules!!

When’s Russell going to make the leap from prospect to contender?

Russell Jr looke dreal good, hopefully he gets a better test next time he was on a different level to the Russian.

Ask Arturo Gatti too.

I’ll give Abril some credit, he’s not the most fun guy to watch but dude has an awkward boxing style that I see giving problems to any of the top guys at 135/140..he also throws a nice combination of straight punches when he let’s his hands go..too bad for Abril that the boxing world is not clamoring to see him on the ring against any of the top guys..only haters want to see fighters like Abril matched against boxers they don’t like in hopes to make them look bad.

Fight dirty with Floyd and you’re toast. Ask Victor Ortiz.

Abril won the fight, although it was closer than the official results. Bogere should learn how not to fight with his head. Abril can be a dirty fighter too.

Proud African

Abril probably won. Wrestling-Boxing-MMA.

The Prince

Obviously, if you fight on Showtime, you can fight dirty and get away with it. Good news for Gurrerro, then again, Floyd also knows how to fight dirty and make it look good.

Two dirty fighters, with one punching with his head.
