I don't see him going undefeated in his career but you and anyone else who believes that bullshit you spewing should be laughed at every time you speak. He gets hit with shots he shouldn't get hit with every time he fights and that's due to him standing in the pocket a lot. No one on this board has been in his camp or been around him in between fights ti speak on his dedication.

And so what if their team sports Jordan hit a casino in NY in the 93 playoffs and it was a crucial game for them and he still whipped their tail. All athletes club because they get paid to be there. Don't single him out just because you probably don't like him. Once again your bit picking at someone I don't think you care for which is fine but state facts. When you been around the man to speak to his dedication. I'll answer for you, not never. His issue isn't one of discipline its one of buffoonery and he does that in the ring too. I agree he will take an L but I see no one on the horizon that's gon clip him just yet


I am not around Broner you are right but from what i have seen and heard he lacks discipline. He may have a hard work ethic but discipline is key. he has the hard work aspect but the dedication I question....
I like Broner... I do, as a boxer I think he has all the gifts it takes to be number one, and I am not making you out to be a fanboy of Broner's either. I know you Chicago cats like anyone rough around the edges, hence yawls love for Rodman!

i don't know broner either....

but when u see video of him drunk and eating stripper cootchie in the club....and you hear stories of him getting dropped by a dude who just turned pro in sparring....it's easy to assume he has no discipline. and let's not act like he didn't get touched up by gavin reese. that shouldn't have happened.

we know when jordan was up in that casino...he was gambling. not getting drunk acting a fool. and when floyds up in that club...he ain't taking a sip of liquor or licking no stripper cootchie. i guess what i'm getting at is that there are different levels of discipline. so in comparison to floyd...who broner wants to be....he lacks discipline.

Thank YOU Professor, someone understands what I am saying!

Yeah we like toughness not pussies lol.

I think what Broner's career is going to come down to is maturity. If he doesn't grow up inside and outside the ring then it's a wrap. I think me, you, professor, and everyone else on this board wants to see how he fares with some junior welters Luke Matthysse and Garcia and Peterson. Fighting those types will show us who Adrien Broner is

That game was wild. It's crazy that the original 6 made it to the end

True. He does display a lack of immaturity. Sometimes I wonder if it's an act or if it's really the way he is

I wonder the same thing, he does seem like a sharp guy, so it is very possibly and act to make himself more marketable and it's working

I don't get why people got so excited about broner getting touched up by reese. It wasn't by accident! Lol, he stayed in there because gavin can't crack. Do you know how many times Floyd did that in the lower classes and got touched up for it to? I'm not saying its smart but come on guys he didn't respect his power and he stayed in there cause he wanted to not because he couldn't avoid him lol. Way to much weight being put in that fight. I don't remember people giving Floyd flac for choosing to trade with Emmanuel and getting his nose busted.

Bottom line is broner has a lot of talent and a good amount of skill. He has the tools but he lacks some focus, I could see him getting upset by any number of guys and that's probably why he skipped a stacked division. But I don't blame him because once those dudes move up he might already have a belt and they will have to Chase him.

Up until that fight Floyd showed his defensive skills. we knew what he could do... Broner I have to idea yet. The Manny Augustus fight was the first time Floyd actually stood toe to toe and got hit. It was a great fight and if you noticed he hasn't fought like that since that fight....

He stood toe to toe with Mosley. But he chose to trade and broner has shown flashes of brilliance defensively to but he chooses to trade, he's even said it he likes to trade instead of focusing so much on defense. In the demarco fight he got touched well maybe what?.. twice?

Bradley could have ran from ruslan all night but he didn't. It could have been a relatively easy decision for him buy sometimes the fighters have other plans even tho they have the skills to avoid a fire fight

Boxing is not running... That is a casual fan's analysis. Bradely could have boxed his way to victory. He does not hit hard enough to continue fighting in the manner he fought the russian and will cut his career short if he fights that way again

The point I was trying to make is that many fighters could easily outbox a lot of fighters but feel like they have to probe something so they don't.

Only a causal fan would miss that.

The difference between Floyd and Broner outside the ring is, Floyd parties partly because of business. His persona makes him money. Broner would be partying whether he was a household name or not. Also, Floyd comes home from the club and throws on the sweats to go work out. I highly doubt Broner is comin home drunk and running miles while intoxicated. In a few interviews Floyd had in NYC, he seemed a bit "over" Broner and the comparisons. I think Broner is closer to him than he is to Broner. I won't accuse Broner of not being a hard worker. None of us are in his camps. That being said, he does seem to lose focus and professionalism at times. Not just out of the ring but in the ring by, like daprofessor said, getting hit unnecessarily by outclassed fighters like Gavin Reese.
