haha said exactly what i thought but with less words.
I wasn't sure about Thurman until i saw him against Chavez, he proved he has the skills to pay the bills. Chavez was fast and strong with a defense, right when it looked like he was gonna take Thurman out, homeboy went into sage mode. Got used to Chavez's speed and was able to avoid his power and adjust his movements to get into the right spot and land the precise shots, put chavez down with 1 body shot. Broner has a solid defense but Thurman would end up imposing his will on Broner. If Broner shells up, he will either get his guard broken through or Thurman will feint him, keep moving and select his openings. Thurman has the speed to match broner, the power to hurt broner, and the IQ to beat Broner. This would be no Mismatch, the broner i saw against Paulie would've got hurt against the Thurman i saw against chavez. But anything could happen, Thurman has my vote though.
I like Figueroa but he would get picked apart by Broner, he needs to work on his defense.
I think he got Thurman a few times, maybe not visibly hurt but Thurman was gassing but not as bad as Chaves. But they were both definitely gassed
True, the Broner that showed up against Malinaggi would lose to Thurman, but I want to see how he grows into the weight class with a few more fights. Then maybe it would be a different fight
I don't think he has Broner's speed, I just don't see that. If they were to fight this year I'd side with Thurman to beat Broner bt if we're talking this time next year give me MR. Band Camp by decision, his upside is way more then Thurman's
