Default Is Adrien Broner the complete package?

What do you think? He has the speed, power, skills, and ability to fight any distance. Do you think he's the most well rounded fighter right now?

I think Andre Ward is the most well rounded.

I think Floyd Mayweather is the best skilled, and I think Broner is the most talented right now relative to his weight.

He can do it all. He can ambush, set up an opponent or engage in a firefight if need be.

Kid has the artillery and good chin.

Hasnt been tested against a good outfighter yet. His left hook is excellent. Would like to see him throw the right more.

Floyd's lack of aggressiveness has a lot to do with why he is 43-0. Floyd's power is also underrated. That being said, Broner is quite skilled, but for now, he is like Dwade, while FMJ is Jordan.

So far so good, the great thing is that he is at GBP and there are so many fights to be made how to show how great he is or solidify himself as a special fighter.

and the lack of agressiveness and tendency to avoid and take retirements put a blemish on his record, like his unc said, if he does not face PAC he will go into history as a scared fighter.

Broner if he continues to take on champs and punk them he will be a special talent who cares about records when u face the best, and don't avoid.

Dunno yet. Certainly has talent, but he's been matched well and hasn't been pushed. What kind of chin does he have? How does he handle good movement and a good jab?

he took some pretty decent lefts from demarco, but you're right pertaining to future matchups against good boxers. i would like to see how he would do against another slickster

So far he has proven to be the real deal. He is skilled and has a good defense, but unlike Floyd and Ward, Broner makes his fights exciting.

I know Floyd was much more exciting, when he started, so I just hope Broner doesn't become a boring fighter later in his career.

hard to say atm, i wanna see how he does against someone who will run away and look to spoil like a Alexander, he likes to stay in the pocket but against some guys who just retreat it will be harder

Would like to see him against Bradley at 140.

Bradley has his limitations, but the guy will make you fight from ding to dong.
