Im no fan of deleon andi feel the guy has one of the most awkard/ugly styles in all of boxing but he got robbed tonight.
I heard things bout Broner too and was expecting a dominating performance but boy was wrong. Broner looked too scared to let his hands go against a guy who was fighting above his normal weight.
Alvarez looked good and dominated as expected bit im still not sold on the kid i know he's only 20 yrs old so i might be expecting too much right now but still see a lot of holes in hos game but to his credit he throws some beautiful ass combos for a fighter his age.

when you compare Broners perfromance agianst Deleon to that of JuanMa's it ain't looking to good for Broner.

99-91 for Broner was corrupt. The idea that this judge could possibly get by without being audited/investigated by someone is very sad for boxing. 96-94 either way would have been fine. I'd much rather see De Leon fight again than Broner.
Alvarez is still to young to judge him. I'd love to see him in with either Angulo or Kirkland. Cintron's jab would be too much for him.
I agree with both of you.
While de Leon v Broner was not full on robbery, 99-91 was full on bullshit. This kind of crap is endemic in boxing and needs to be addressed. Broner was a dud. Fuse fizzled. Big letdown.
Alvarez, on the other hand, got the job done. My only problem with him is he failed (or, never tried) to make weight. GBP sucks. The sanctioning of a fight contracted for 150 to be for a 154 belt is pathetic. The announcers might as well have been in the ring milking Alvarez's nuts while sucking his dick.
I agree that Alvarez v Angulo is the next logical step up.
