He tries too hard to be Floyd instead of working to his strengths and he's too stiff. By copying Floyd he ends up copying the obvious things while ignoring the less obvious things that win fights and ofcourse the difficult skills that seperate the top fighters. He also copies some of Floyd's errors like his wide slappy left hook. I reckon he does a bit of bodybuilding training too, which adds muscles for show but not explosiveness/strength

If he's the no.1 135lber he's one of the very worst to ever earn that distinction.

Still, solid chin, big guy, decent pop, good test for Broner.
Yea pretty weak no1, Demarco is there to build Broner's name not as a true acid test

The Benitez fights were impressive in themselves, although I'm sure others have seen far more of him to give a fair assessment

Never thought I'd agree with Flea so many times on 1 thread, aye Flea?
