Two vastly different characters, humility vs braggadocious in the eyes of many. This would likely translate into the old story of good guy vs bad guy, thus drawing plenty of fans in and making such a fight even bigger.
Recent reports on Boxing Scene suggested that Broner had priced himself out of the fight, according to Top Rank head honcho Bob Arum.

The American last fought in April when he stopped Britain’s Ashley Theophane inside the distance in what was a very impressive win, to be fair.
He now appears to have put legal troubles behind him for the most part too, following being released from jail after doing a brief stint earlier this year following the Theophane bout, with his apparent focus now back on his prizefighting career.
