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.

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!!
