BAN this kid for a month for this stupid topic!
Are you blind?

C'mon! many people saw his imitation. Even when he was sitting on the stool last night at his corner, it was the same style that Floyd always does. Watch the VDO if you don't believe me.

Do you want me to get banned because you think that my thread is stupid?

[quote=Bogotazo;14231170]It's not just the philly shell defense, it's a lot of things he does in the ring. I hope he starts showing more versatility, not because his style is bad, but because it limits his possibilities. New stars with trademark styles make themselves stand out. So far, what Broner's given us is something we've already seen.[/quote

Because it works. Dumb Question.
That style is an old school American style. James Toney uses a version of it as well.

In fact, I really don't need the answer for this question. I just would like him to quit doing so.

Broner Ain't copying Floyd...
If anything Adrien is what Floyd should have been.

W/Broner maybe we get a Mayweather w/*****.

Styles are not copy written. You use the style that works for you.
Mayweather isn't the first one to use it either,he copied someone too.

Yeah I have to say when he does some of that show boat stuff it almost comes off as awkward. Like when he was talking to Larry Merchant at the end. Just feel like that's not who he really is, doesn't seem to "mean it" when he says it like Floyd does.

It's not just his fighting style he's copied it's his entire persona. Floyd makes money by being a **** with masterful boxing skills. Broner wants a bit of that Money. Broner be the new Ellerbe!

just to clear things up
y'all are asking why Broner(undefeated, high IQ fast handed boxer) who's on the rise, is trying to imitate floyd mayweather(undefeated, top 2 highest IQ thats active now, fast hands with power in both, that is practically unhittable) what a mystery. So what he's sharking floyd's style. he's been successful with it, and until he's not whats the problem?
