I know the boxing world has a hard one for Broner. I get that, he looks spectacular in all his fights (Ponce de Leon is the exception and no rematch surprisingly) and he has the image of being a clown and he is exciting in and out the ring. Great. Boxing skills are high and he isn't afraid to land shots. Kellerman was almost arrested for sexual assault when he interviewed Broner for having Broner's nuts (without permission) all up and down his mouth. As great as Broner is I do not think he will be as good as the Charlo twins. Broner has speed and power but will that transcend as he moves up in weight? When he moves to 140 and 147 fighters will be able to hit just as hard as he does, can he take a solid punch and can he handle a real boxer/fighter? I would want him to fight either Marcos or his countrymen Lucas Matthysee. THat would be interesting and the winner from Judah and Swift. I want to see how he deals with all around fighter. Gavin gave him fits and to be honest that little man has heart!

The Charlo twins show such great poise and maturity in and outside the ring. In their fights they look as if they have been boxing for decades upon decades. The way they use their jab, speed, and defense is remarkable. They do no look for the knock out but instead they look for openings and placing their punches precisely where they want them to go. They are all around solid. They are methodical the way they box.

Thurman is an exciting boxing but I fear he only looks for the knock out punch, I think he will end up getting beat first than the aforementioned boxers. Of all the boxers I just feel that the Twins will be the most successful.

Mayweather Jr Jr has the brightest future among those guys.


Thurman reminds me a lot of Kermit Cintron. He will run into his Margarito at some point and what he does will determine what kind of fighter he is.

Dont know much about the Charlo twins. I just recently heard of them.

I just recently heard of the twins as well. If Thurman stays at 147 and can find his way into some mandatory challenges for belts, he could be a long term champion in that weight class. He looks like his frame can carry him all the way to middleweight and he has the punch to go with it.

The only concern I have with Broner is his height as he moves up. He has the skill level, although I imagine he will adjust his willingness to get hit at 147 when he gets there.

Both will be on the scene for a long time and be champions in multiple weight classes

I like Broner, but i dont like how he carries himself when its not fight time. I only take him seriously in the ring, other than that, he needs to make more of his upcoming name other than the guy who clowns around and gets his hair brushed. I really just respect him as a boxer, when he's in the ring he is in there to break you down and take you out.. I was wondering what was going on in the first two rounds against Rees until i noticed he was just feeling him out, he even called it and said "He only got 3 more rounds in him" then put on a show... Thats when i gain the most respect for him, when its time to put up or shut up, stop clowning around and get to work. Other than some immature antics, is he keeps dedicated to his craft he'll be good.

Thurman; ehhhh, he will just be a good opponent for someone to be tested. Let him face canelo.

Charlo Twins: I keep hearing about them every week and how Dolomite explained it, it sounds like they fight how i fight. I already like them, I need to see some footage!

Gary Russell Jr; Fight more people!!!! Donaire, Rigondeaux, Gamboa, Juan Manuel Lopez, Salido, Mikey Garcia. He needs to stop sleeping on himself. I think Russell jr has a bright future if he gets more active..

It's hard to say at this time, they are bringing Broner along slowly so he might get a chance to develop well or become a product of "select" matchmaking and being allowed to fight some of those with a big name by the time they're past it or someone has beaten them. On the other hand Thurman has a harder road to get through because he has made a reputation as a power puncher and therefore must keep proving that by providing rousing KO's, unlike Broner who has garnered the rep as a Boxer who can simply make it by outboxing his opponents.

Time will tell but I think Broner's defense will get tighter and careful match-making will allow him to fare longer in this sport because of it and will be spoken of more highly than Thurman.

Let's not forget that with Broner's last PPV showing of 1.4 million that he is already an attraction and will hold the attention of the public due to his antics, loud mouth/rash things he says and people wanting to see him get KTHO!!

The Charlo twins have been on Fox Sports and I think they were featured on Showtime. They are Al Haymon fighters and these boys know how to box. They are very smart boxers. They are not flashy outside the ring but inside the ring they are trouble. Yawl have got to look these kids up they are amazing talent.

Gary Russell Jr. is ina weight division dominated by Hispanics, he has to beat all the top cats in the lower weight division. He has the speed and power to do it.

As much as I like Mayweather Jr. Jr. or M3 I see him taking a L early. I don't know why I just do. His outside life is too closely related to his boxing life. Plus he has a million dudes in his camp that are not about boxing but instead about that life a boxing megastar can bring. He needs to stop rapping period he is awful. Look at Roy Jones Jr, didn't make it as a rapper. Mayweather even stopped. M3 just stick to boxing!

Russell Jr and Broner. The way they fight and the manner in which they display their physical gifts is something I truly can appreciate. I don't know wtf GB is doing with Russel jr, but it's time for him to shine. I have no doubt that he will be a great champion and have a great career going forward. Broner is Borner, what he does in the ring is self explanatory. His interview antics and such at times doesn't really move me at times because I think he overdoes it. But that's not my problem to deal with and I think some fans penalize him because of outside the ring which is stupid. He's GB's headache, I only care about the entertainment value and he provides lots of it in and occasionaly outside the ring

Russell needs to get in there with Gamboa.

Broner is the most complete to my knowledge.

Thurman seems to rely on his power A LOT.

Don't know who the twins are

Each of the Twins has only 1 fight on youtube. They show promise indeed. They're around Thurman's weight. I would love to see that. I always appreciate pure boxers
