Broner has better inside offense and defense in spurts. He wasn't getting hit in the pocket for three rounds.

As for complete inside game, Rios takes it. Rios has a monster chin. The guy doesn't feel pain and to trade with him inside is committing suicide. All Rios knows how to do is fight inside. If the two were to fight, Broner would move a lot more than he did against DiMarco.
