However, since many people enjoys it and the participants go home with thousands of dollars the nothing matters.
This fight was was much talked about as Broner has in different platform voice out his plans and preparedness to take Pacquiao out during their fight. As Usual, fans trooped out em mas to watch how Broner is going to do the magic but were there disappointed?
