Still a very credible opponent for a 1st fight at 140 and one he deserves props for winning if he does.

Demarco's arguably the #1 fighter at 135 so thats a great first step up for Broner too. There's only one other fighter you can argue better than Demarco at 135 and that's Vazquez who gets criminally underrated.
Good post.

If you can't see past your own bias then you don't know how to watch a boxing match. I am sorry if you don't like me attacking your man crush, I didn't mean to offend your sensitive feelings; I just tell it like it is.

On another note, what does Abril holding have to do with whether he won the fight or not? If you do only two things during a match, hold and hit, one does not negate the other. It may not be a pretty style of boxing, but it is a legitimate style of boxing if the ref allows it. Once again, when someone mentions the holding, while discussing whether they won or not, it makes me question their knowledge of the sport.

Broner stepped up already against De Leon, he just didn't look that great and probably should have got the L in that fight. It was still a step up in competition nonetheless.
