I watched Broner last 2 fights and he's nothing to brag about...He really didn't look that good. His power is mediocre at best. He tries to imitate Floyd but that's something you can't imitate and be successful. Kell Brook is a better prospect.
If he sticks to it long enough, maybe he'll master that style of boxin'.

Broner has some proving to do. He was nowhere near busy enough in his last fight. Wouldn't hurt my feelings if Litzau pulled off another upset.
Litzau isn't really a push-over himself, so an upset is very possible.

I thought ponce de leon got him in that in that fight even though most of his connects were to the body i didnt think that mattered but that broner has good skills i think jason litzau is gonna get lit up by a counter i can see it already.....ponce was just too small for this dude but he held his own....i think broner is gonna have to move up to 135 to get more intreastings fights there isnt anybody i can think of worth fighting at 130 if im wrong please correct
You aren't the only person that feels that way. Many people, includin' Ponce De Leon feel that way.

Broner is nothing to get excited about. He struggled and looked like shit against a smaller Ponce de Leon. He has no power and showboats way to much for someone who has done nothing. I think Litzua may light him up unless Broner puts on his running shoes to avoid a punch. To say he has Mayweather like skills is an insult to Mayweather. Broner doesnt do the shoulder roll and he lack true boxing skill. Just because a guys runs to avoid a punch doesnt mean he's a skilled boxer. Hes a wanna-be boxer who likes to showboat, nothing more.
He does do the shoulder roll, he just doesn't do it as good as Floyd does it (yet). That's what made me make the comparison in the 1st place. When I 1st saw him fight, I was like, "This guy has that Mayweather defensive posture." His defensive posture is what kept me interested (the same thing that made me become a fan of Mayweather), 'cause before then, I didn't even know who the kid was. I did some research on him and watched a few clips of him on Youtube and came to the conclusion that he's definitely tryin' to be the next Floyd, although Floyd's boxin' IQ is light years ahead of his, so is his skill set.
