It is just my opniion, but I think he is better on the inside with lefties with his shoulder roll than Floyd was. I think he is a more dedicated body puncher too, two different styles from the same base though.
You can't use the shoulder roll when walking down fighters, especially southpaws because with the weight on the front foot, it's difficult to avoid punches(which is why Broner eats so many straight punches) Floyd uses it from midrange and in. Broner uses it at every range which is ok except he lacks the upper body movement and balance to be efficient with it.

On the inside, there is no such thing as lefty/righty. The angles are all but gone and the punches come from similar angles. That's why southpaws need space. So the left hand comes from an angle unusual to conventional fighters.
