Re: Broner - Justified hype or way overboard?
Lateral movement is clearly the key to beating him. He's very Toney-esque in that respect, shortens his punches up really well and has a tight defence.
Footwork whilst on the attack.... brutal.
Burns has good footwork and a decent array of punches, can vary his jab nicely which would be key in this one. After that his best shot is the left to the body, but he'd have to put himself in Broner's range to get those off consistently, which would be a concern clearly.
DeMarco did alright in patches when he could stay outside, but couldn't do it and was chewed up pretty badly.
The key to doing well against him is to forget his antics and not want to try and kill him, you'd play into his hands that way.
