Default Re: How does Burns/Broner go now then?

The exact same problem Rees has is also a problem Burns as, these kids really have no power against Broner. Nothing, if people think Burns bothers Broner in the slightest with his punches they're in for a rude awakening.

If Ricky Burns can't completely get Roman Martinez under control how on earth do they think he throws 1-2's all night down the pipe with the odd left-hook to the body and that's going to confuse Broner apparently and stop his march forward? Give me a break, it just ain't happening!
Go and watch the Martinez fight then Ricky's last 2fights and see the improvement,totally different fighter,against Martinez you had a world class puncher so you needed tactics to stop him throwing those bombs and Ricky done just that, the tactic side of boxing you havent a clue mate
