Re: Better footwork and Speed Linares vs Broner?
His accumulated lead against DeMarco is now looking more impressive...from what I remember, there was a lot of lateral movement, combination punching, and side-step counter-punching (all JMM-like traits)...but the question here isn't really whether Broner is going to out-maneuver DeMarco, but whether he's going to catch him consistently as he comes in and control the distance. I think Broner has the superior power and equal quickness, he's just more devastating when he lands an accurate single shot or couple of punches. But DeMarco does have quite a chin on him and may be able to wreak havoc on the inside on Broner and reach him in ways he couldn't Linares.
Interesting thread! I'll have to watch more footage to review the idea.
