I know this question was asked back when it was thought Broner would face Guerrero before Floyd, but I figured since we've had updated views of both guys I'd bring up the question again; How would u see Broner matching against Guerrero from last night? Would he have the same/better success as Floyd or a Harder fight?

Now I asked, "if it's to soon to ask" for the obvious reason that we've yet to see Broner work at welter, but seeing as him and Guerrero do have parallel stories of jumping 2 divisions and Broner SEEMS more physically cut out to match at WW, the question should remain fitting at this time.

Let me know how u see things playing out with Broner vs. Guerrero

Guerrero beats Broner by TKO no later the 8th.

Guerrero has seen a Mayweather-type style...Broner is vicariously living through Floyd's victory, and has yet to see a Guerrero-type style.

Broner is waaaay more offensive than Mayweather, which will leave him more open to Robert's onslaught....

Yeah and apparently Broner isn't as good as handling that kind of offense like Mayweather can. I really don't get what people see in Broner, just because he reminds of us Floyd Mayweather, doesn't mean he is. I see two totally different level of fighters. Broner isn't going to walk through Malignaggi imo either.

Right

I see Broner having more success than Berto, but far less than Mayweather...in terms of the shoulder roll style. Truthfully, Floyd didn't do much shoulder-rolling against Guerrero, because he didn't give Robert a chance to throw that many punches.

I also agree that Broner wont just steamroll through Paulie, like most think. Guerrero is a big ass WW too...may be too much for Adrien. Just because Broner comes into a fight as a WW, doesn't mean that he will perform the same after officially tipping the scale at WW the day before. People tend to get this mixed up.

The most interesting part is, Robert has officially fought against that Mayweather style, who's fought at the top level unlike Broner's watered down version of Floyd's style, which he hasn't fought at the highest level yet. Robert may have more success than people think, because he's been there already.
