Tonight is a huge fight for Jason Litzau. Broner is extremely fast, but he doesn't seem to let his hands go. I really don't get how Broner is favored in this fight, as he was lucky to get the decision against De Leon and Litzau beats Caballero. Broner doesn't have half the heart or desire Jason does, and Jason is going to keep the jab out there and pressure him at times too. Broner won't feel comfortable in there, and a good jab neutralizes speed. Jay has that, and he'll be great tonight. I expect him to stop Broner actually, as Litzau can hit hard with that right. I saw the thread about Broner fighting like Floyd. Problem is, he doesn't have that type of talent or desire like Floyd.
However, the national media (mainly Teddy Atlas) consistently shits all over MN boxing. When Javontae Starks fought last night it took Teddy one minute to say something to the extent of building his record up. Dip shit Teddy should have realized dude is 4-0 only, and is trying to take the steps up. Did Teddy realize he was ranked # 1 at 152 in the amatuers and was on the olympic alternate team in 08, and fought the best in the country. Teddy really has no idea what the hell he is talking about when it comes to MN boxing, but he gives it a stigma. Well, it's time to defy the odds again and put certain media members in their place once again. Jason Litzau, Jamal James, Javontae Starks, and Tony Lee will all be champ someday. Yes, this thread is for hometown pride and I got back in town to Minneapolis last night and I missed the city. Go Jason Litzau and bring it home again!!!
Antwan Robertson and Patrick Cape are two other local boxers fighting in Canada, so best of luck to them too. Hopefully a 4-0 weekend to this state.
Here's a link to a couple local interviews with Litzau if anybody's interested. They were good pieces of work I felt.
