Default Adrien Broners win over Demarco is overrated

So was Valeros win. Demarco was never that good to begin with.

Gamboa would have stopped Broner.

He would have still beaten Broner. Broner struggled with Ponce De Leon.

Ponce is a southpaw. Just like all fighters who's bread and butter is the Philly Shell, Broner had to switch to a high guard which muddled his offense.

Get real and stop trolling.

Maybe at a catchweight, yeah. DeMarco struggles with good fighters.

I'm getting real and saying Broner is not as good as Gamboa. He's overrated.

DeMarco is not a featherweight.

So whats your point?

Broner was a featherweight and never fought Gamboa. He would be knocked out if he did.

I agree with the OP, and this isn't revisionist. I've been consistently saying (since before Valero fought DeMarco) that Tony isn't and won't ever be ready for prime time.

He was getting schooled by Linares until the latter's flaws (and his own dogged perseverance, one of the tools that brings him close to being able to hang with the world class) gave him a perfect in.

Similarly, he dodged a bullet due to Adjaho's stupidity/cowardice in a match that could have easily wound up an L on his record otherwise. (to a B- level guy, no less)

Kid Diamond was shot.

His next best victories after those are nothing to suggest he's what many prop him up to be. He's an overachiever, and a product of lucky circumstances several times over. Easy to root for, spirit of a warrior and all - but no, he isn't and never was elite or even close.

Molina is rubbish.

Broner was always going to bat DeMarco around like a cat toy, and I said this from the moment it was signed.

This isn't about discrediting Broner (whom I admittedly do disdain) - it's quite the opposite. It's about recognizing that he's leaps and bounds above the ESPN level that DeMarco truly is.

I would say yes. DeMarco fought a terrible fight that played right into the hands of Broner. His victory had already been predetermined so how can it be a massive achievement..

Gamboa is the same height as him and at featherweight would beat Broner.

People are just regarding the win as a solid statement. That's all. Not a career-defining scalp or anything.
