There will be a response. Someone will ask AB about Senior's quote and we will see how AB handles it. Will he bow out with a no comment or will he say "Senior don't know shit about boxing." To be continued.
I think Paulie was a test to AB. AB passed with a C. Not bad but not great. I forget the odds were that fight. Paulie showed a lot of spirit. Broner did what he had to do to win.
I thought Broner lost the fight and did not pass and if I had to grade him then I'd grade him on the following:
Ring Generalship-D-, he never cut off the ring vs PM
Punching power-D-, highly overrated about his so called "punching power", he never hurt PM or knocked him down for all his so called perceived power
Defense-D-, IMHO he (Broner) got hit entirely too much, I thought PM threw more and landed more despite not being able to hurt Adrien, his shoulder roll is garbage
Lateral Movement-D- Broner did not exhibit any real movement, just straight forward walking down without cutting off the ring, no angles on his punching, no traps
Clean punching-C, he did land a few clean bombs but none of which truly had PM in serious trouble
So overall I'd give Broner a D, I was not impressed by anything he did in that fight and he'd have no chance vs Floyd, none at all but it would be interesting to see him get taken apart while school is in session.
