Broner does his Mayweather imitation, but it's a 35 year old Floyd he imitates. His feet are a little too flat for a Lightweight with his physical ability and potential. Burns is under-rated in terms of skills, his jab will have success and so will his right hand once he starts to feint. Doesn't matter how quick a Boxer is, they'll fall for feints. Cotto vs Mayweather is a wonderful example of that.

Broner should beat Burns, but anybody seeing it as a cake walk is deluded.
There's a key difference between Broner and Mayweather people are missing. The left hook. Reason why Mayweather doesnt have many impressive ko'd is because he's never sat on the left hook. Broner does. Its his best punch. He leans back waits for you to commit plants and throws that left hook. Had Demarcos face swelling after the first one landed. I feel Broner still has to develop his right hand lead and his jab. But that left hook boy. Dont see anyone at 135 handling that.
