Re: Broner - Justified hype or way overboard?
It's hard to know how to rate him. He's fought two good opponents, DeMarco and Ponce De Leon, and looked impressive against one and got a gift against the other. Was DeMarco perfect for Broner or is it a sign he's improved? Was Ponce De Leon just a very bad styles match up or was that the sign of real limitation? I don't know, honestly.
He looks good, and has all the right attributes, but my skepticism is related to his ability once he starts getting hit back. I thought he looked poor against Quintero and poor against De Leon, so there is definitely reason for concern against opponents who dish it back.
