Somewhere in between, he's very good but not enough to justify the hype

Over hyped? Please Saul Alverez is over hyped. Boner looks much more talented than Alverez and yet Alverez is hyped as the next Superstar of boxing. American boxing has been geared to lure in the Latino's. So now many other fighters are underrated.

Ive seen him fight a couple of times and although he looks good Im not convinced he is as good as some people are making out. I said at the end of last year that I thought he would lose at some point in 2013 and I stand by that.

Hard to say. He does look like Floyd with a little more "pop" Heck, Pacquiao was "way overboard!"

He looks good, and has all the right attributes, but my skepticism is related to his ability once he starts getting hit back. I thought he looked poor against Quintero and poor against De Leon, so there is definitely reason for concern against opponents who dish it back.
People were saying DeMarco had a similar style to PDL. He fought very silly though that night. Ponce is a smarter fighter than ADM which is why he looked so much worse against him.

To be perrectly honest Ive never heard anyone say Broner is anything but hype, when people talk about a fighter and continiously say he's a hype job, is that actually hype???

I haven't heard anyone saying he's the 'future greatest of all time'. It's not hype, it's momentum. His performances talk. Doesn't matter if his opponent is sub-par, his talent and skill is obvious.

Just my opinion but I would take him over Burns, Vazquez, Khan, Garcia, Matthysse and Peterson. Once he goes to 147lbs he will lose.

If you watch the Gatti fight/or maybe it was the Corrales fight? You'll see how Mayweather expertly uses upper body movement and leans from angles to throw combinations to head and body without moving anywhere in the ring.

They dont need to move their feet like most. Its a different style. They create openings with upper body movement and setting traps.

Whenever I watch Broner or Mayweather they look so stiff legged, but when you watch them up top, you'll see exactly why they can be like that. They need to plant their feet to generate such deceiving power on counters, and also to make their opponents punches miss. Mayweather's trademark "pull-counter" is all about upper-body movement, nout to do with the legs, they are stationary and locked in position, they have to be in order to pull the move of, lure the punch in and fool the opponent.

You reach. I teach. Fighting these two must be a nightmare, you think you've got it, and then they take it all away! They take the piss so much, you must feel demoralized at the end of a fight. Mentally and physically.

Masters of the craft.

watch the in and out footwork here, watch how he actually measures the distance, he doesn't just stand there and shoulder roll

The criticism of Broner seems to come from the PDL fight. Personally I think the fact he has looked so impressive since tells you how much he learned from that night.I mean god forbid a prospect isn't perfect in his climb to the top? He'll whip Burns when they meet imo.

There's justified hype from his last couple performances. He's looked devastating as a total package in the last couple. But, the rating that Giampa gave him in Ring? That was pathetic and completely unjustified at this point.
