Re: Do we agree, and admit, that we overrated Adrian Broner?
I agree but don't admit, because I've said since day one that he was overrated!
Read every post I've ever written on him, I always said he was far too hyped.
End of the day after last night, name a welterweight that doesn't beat Broner?
Matthysse - hits Broner, stops Broner.
Garcia - hits Broner, stops Broner.
Khan - dances around Broner, scores a very one sided UD over Broner.
Mayweather - I need say no more
Petersen - closer fight but stands a chance.
Guererro - beats Broner on UD.
Guy looked average last night against Paulie who is an average welterweight now.
Broner in the lightweight division is like Mile Tyson fighting in the cruiser weight division, he's massive and compact, however for Broner that doesn't transfer well to welterweight.
As much as he won the fight we realized last night that he was hyped and that his huge knockout ratio in the LW division is down to nothing more than his size in the division.
When he steps up to a weight were he is of average size and weight he's an average fighter.
Nothing like Matthysse who is average size, maybe even small for the weight but still has raw power.
