Default Re: Joan Guzman versus Adrien Broner right now who wins

Guzman was a better fighter at his best, but I'm not sure how sharp and quick he really is nowadays. Nor am I sure how effective Broner would be north of 135 (I suspect he'd be fine at 140, though).

Guzman has superior movement to Broner and could potentially control the angle, set traps, attempt to counter Broner's counters, and try to get off first a bit with his unorthodox and unpredictable technique and combinations. That could see him through to some serious success if he can keep it up, but at this stage, I don't know if he really can. Broner might wind up timing Guzman with the straighter and more fundamentally correct punches as the fight goes on. And if Guzman's movement slows, Broner's inside work and body punching would pay dividends.

Interesting fight. Looking forward to seeing how Guzman looks, but gun to my head, I'd put money on Broner right now.
