    Tries too hard to fight like Floyd, that's always been his biggest problem.

    I think he could have done more in his career if he wasn’t burdened by the physical need to impregnate every woman he slept with.

    I'm not trying to hold him up to ATG standards. Just that he had some flashes of brilliance before weight jumping.

    Kind of reminds me of Trevor Berbick. He showed glimpses of elite potential but he just doesn't have the discipline. He is a shell of his former himself and should just hang up the gloves now. Adrien Broner is done. Its over

    Correct. A Floyd wannabee who never had anywhere close to the ability but worse not a tenth of the workrate.

    I never understood how Broner never looked at Floyd and saw that even with all the money Mayweather worked as hard as anyone.

    I disagree slightly.

    Hes got plenty of talent.

    What holds him back is lack of IQ, and lack of discipline.

    But talent? I think hes got plenty of that.

    Cant think of a worse 4 division champ then him and think he would have been better served hanging around those lower weights bit longer

    Absolutely. Broner's main problem is a mental issue. Lack of focus and discipline.

    Think there may be a couple of guys who picked up 4 in the lowest divisions which is easier considering small fighter pools and i cant say i follow the staw and flyweights much
