Adrien Broner already thinks that he is the biggest thing in boxing but Floyd Mayweather Jr thinks that the general public will soon agree.
In an interview with Mlive.com Floyd discussed the business aspects of boxing and him trying to sign the next star to TMT.
“I just want to continue to work with fighters and try to look for that next Floyd Mayweather, or the next Manny Pacquiao,” Mayweather said. “That’s what it’s about, the next Mike Tyson, the next Zab Judah. That’s my ultimate goal, to try to make the next fighter a pay-per-view star.”
When asked to pick who has that star potential in boxing currently he threw out a few names:
“Andre Ward’s skills, I mean, he’s one hell of a fighter,” Mayweather said. “But if I’m making a business move, I have to go to Adrien Broner, because once again, I understand business. Hate it or love it — hate it or love it — personality.”
Broner’s in the ring skills need to catch up to his mouth outside of the ring. If he can sharpen those in the ring aspects then I can see him as a huge draw after Floyd retires.
