Boner will be exposed in the next year or so if he actually takes on a live body. Then Redman can go on his merry way with a new comer’s nuts in his mouth,

Maybe Boner should fight old Man Cotto at 147lbs.. that would be nice.. Cotto would tap that tummy better then Rees did.. -

Broner walks around at about 155-160lbs and that’s his true size, But the Chavez Jr. “mystersious diuretics” progam enables him to drop 20lbs in the week before the weigh-ins. Doesn’t take an expert to see it. Broner is probably the biggest, most muscular LW I’ve sever seen. He should definitely be fighting dudes his own size at WW, but he’ll stop at Jr. WW on the way.

Clearly YOU did not watch the fight because both Broner and Rees weighed the SAME on fight night 150 and 151 respectively… Non issue he just gave the dude his beating NEXT!!!!

no doubt Broner weighed over 147+lbs fight night vs Rees.. shamefull

Posted February 20, 2013 3:12 pm

And if you want to talk size, Bredis Prescott weighed 157 coming from 140 the night he fought Alvarado and got knocked out… You wanna talk about a guy who was BIG at 135 when he capped Khan who was also big? AGAIN you guys are all over the place, if a guy goes down he is drained, if he makes weight he is too big… Make up your minds

Hmmmm NOW Broner is being dinged for having broad shoulders? GTFOH him and Rees both weighed about 150 come fight night so again this thesis that he is the biggest LW in boxing history is BADLY debunked by hard data… As I detailed belong we have seen PLENTY of bigger athletes at the weight and often being rangy and lean is preferable to raw bulk ask Jeff Lacy and Bruce Seldon…. Tito Trinidad looked like he had NEVER been near a weight room in his life and he was a murderous puncher across several divisions….Again acting like Broner has no business at the weight is really a joke, he’s there and he is winning deal with it.

Right. Notice that I said “big” and not “tall or rangy” followed by a sentence describing his muscular development. Corrales was tall and skinny, not big. When we say a chic has a big butt or a dude has big arms, it has nothing to do with their height… LOL.

“Broner must be one of the biggest LWs I’ve ever seen in my life.” – He’s listed at 5-7, which is actually pretty short given we’ve had the likes of Chico Corrales a legit 6 foot tall lightweight.

And in his spare time, Broner should take a crash course from Andre Ward and Wladimir Klitschko on how to behave like a grown ass man and conduct himself like a champion and ambassador to the sport. I know he’s young, but not a teenager anymore and already becoming someone kids look up to whether he likes it or not. There are more than enough street thugs to go around for everyone. Shoot… they’re a dime a dozen in my city and the prisons are overflowing with ‘em. And alot of those type of fools like to unload a clip on cats like Broner — just to bring him back down to size and snatch his cash and jewry. I realize that you can’t fix stupid, but they should really try hard with this guy.

Ponce fought Broner 5 fights ago, in the boxing world thats a LONG time ago and he did NOT knock Broner out or really hurt him… Broner has learned alot since then and is dominating imagine Ponce at 135 trying to fight Broner now? He would get knocked out like Juanma did him… Every boxer has a tough night, don’t bank on Lucas the only reason you are discussing him is because Broner is laying waste to his foes…

LW is undoubtedly a weak division at the moment, but there’s enough talent at 140 lbs to keep Broner busy for a few years with trying to unify the Jr. Welter titles. Personally, I think Rees exposed some real flaws in his technique — particularly with his defense. He tries to mimic the Mayweather shoulder roll, but is not nearly as gifted as FMJ when it comes to evading shots and defensive counter-punching. If I were his trainer, I’d start focusing on closing his stance a bit and keeping that left hand up. He appeared to be wide open to overhand rights to the head and left hooks to the body. Vunerable to all body shots, really. I think a skilled, powerful body puncher who doubles-up on hooks, downstairs then upstairs, could be dangerous to Broner right now. Just my analysis, but I’m no real expert.

Posted February 19, 2013 7:35 pm 


SREDMOND

I don’t see Broner at 154 its a BIGGGGGG leap from where he is and it puts him in the class of an FMJ, obviously I can be proven wrong but seeing his believing… Broner does not have to beat Canelo to have an amazing career he just needs to keep winning, moving forward… The guy is 23 and time is on his side to say the least…

“Broner is annoying to me and others yes, but he has the skills to beat all the 140-154 pounders in the world.” Are you kidding me, hecdog??? Canelo would literally smash Broner to pieces and knock his head off his shoulders. And I can think of a couple of other power bangers who would likely do the same.

Posted February 19, 2013 6:29 pm

Hidalgo, AGAIN I agree that Lucas is a dangerous fighter but the problem for me is that people assume that Broner would fight Lucas the way he fought Rees and thats not likely unless his trainer has been living under a rock…In boxing SPEED kills, I am not talking about a spent force like Judah who nicked Mattheysee or Alexander who oddly puts more into grunting than punching… Broner is lighting quick and he can hit as well, I would give Broner the edge due to talent but Lucas would be s serious danger… As for Rees getting capped it was expected but despite expectations you have to make it happen… Young fighters falter ALL the time, Salido had 11 losses despite being young when he got many but he ruined Juanmas career TWICE… You still gotta win the fights, I mean Gamboa was on the canvas again, meanwhile Broner keeps crushing

“80-1 falls under the heading of irrational exuberance there is no question that Broner was the prohibitive favorite ” Well SRedmond, at the start of the fight the odds were 65-35 Broner. Not as radical as 80-1, but Rees defeat was a foregone conclusion.

Te Tumbo, who thinks that Broner and Marquez are on the same level? not even close JMM is a proven commodity… But the truth stands that becoming a multi-division Champion is an achievement and saying a 23 year old does not cut it if he cannot become a titlist in a 3rd division is BOGUS… I know you will take ANY opportunity to lament certain aspects of JMM’s history but it is what it is….

If Broner dominates 2 divisions and chooses to stay at LW for awhile maybe even a couple years does that make him a hype job? Marvin Hagler is famous for being in ONE weight class, Bhop was in 2 weight classes…. Suddenly in order to have a really powerful legacy or be taken seriously you have to move up in weight? I would agree its a nice feather in a guys cap but NOT a requirement…I trace some of this to Pacquiao running around the divisions suddenly people began acting like weight classes are some sort of joke..Alot of fighters are BEST suited to a certain class and YES they will lose if they keep climbing…..But is that REALLY an accurate representation of who they are and their skills….Broner is 23 and he has a long way to go but right now his accomplishments have to be admired… Everyone starts somewhere

Matthysee will look like a statue in the ring with Broner… He is a murderous puncher but he is also one dimensional and that is something that Broner can exploit… The guy is not going to be as reckless with Lucas if they fought, his trainer would show tapes of the 30 guys Matthysee stopped and he would be told to fight smart and win rounds, if the KO appears then go for it but don’t press for the pundits and open yourself up unnecessarily….

Haimat, you failed to hide your bigotry now you are uncomfortable in your own skin trying to focus on Broners often clownish behavior when you launched into a racial tirade earlier..If “Real Boxing fans” don’t like the entertainment value some fighters bring to the ring then why are we watching 24/7 with Floyds insanity and buying his PPV’s by the millions? Why are you on here PISSED because Broner acts like Broner? Its because like them or hate them controversial people stir passions and create interest… Broner would not be getting the attention he is were it not for the fact he is knocking people out and making ALOT of noise while he is doing it….First rule of business NEVER argue with the public, Floyd, Mike Tyson and others SOLD…. Broner was never going to get anywhere with a bland submissive persona…

based on how well he didN’T do v. Ponce, i anticipated that Broner would struggle more v. the likes of DeMarco. instead, the extra weight has become a significant advantage for Broner whose developed some severely PUNishing punching power at lightweight. i’m thinking that he probably punches harder than anybody at 140lbs as well(?). barring some unforeseen development or upset, we’ll be seeing whether or not that’s true in 2014. at the moment, i favor Broner to dominate at 140lbs as well.

Broner with out a doubt has tons of natural talent & the desire to use it. Broner’s antics are for entertainment purposes. This isn’t the first or last arrogant fighter to step in the ring. Broner is witty & seems more naturally confident than Jr. Though it seems that insecurity made Jr erase a questionable decision with an immediate rematch early in his career. Where Broner is happy to slide by & never mention his unofficial loss(es) ever again. That said when Broner is in with an overmatched opponent he isn’t going to carry them for 12 rounds. I like that. The guy is fun to watch.

“Juan Manuel Marquez took YEARS to achieve that distinction, it took Donaire years to get his belts…” different context, different boxing traditions. not to mention Broner doesn’t have to worry about being snubbed by American media and/or mugged by American scorecards. in fact, fair and accurate scorecards would’ve probably convinced Marquez to remain between 130lbs and 135lbs. fortunately, his desire for vindication (not celebrity status) compelled him to fight for and secure his ATG ring-legacy (not inflated bank accounts).we can only imagine what Marquez would’ve achieved if celebrity and wealth were his primary career goals. consequently, comparing Broner to Marquez is like comparing an apple with a bowling ball.

“Almost EVERYONE knew Rees was going to get clocked” but not that Rees was gonna touch Broner with such consistency. a little more size and power and Broner would’ve definitely broken a serious sweat. at least as much as he did v. the presumably overmatched(?) Ponce. besides, what “EVERYONE” knows is what makes the upsets so enjoyable, e.g., Randall v. Chavez (15-1), Douglas v. Tyson (42-1), Rahman v. Lewis (20-1), Sanders v. Wlad Klitschko (20-1), or the lopsided Spinks v. Ali mismatch for which oddsmakers refused to set odds. not to mention other matchups when “almost EVERYONE knew” Trinidud would KO Hopkins and Winky(?), or Jones would defeat Tarver and Johnson(?), or Forrest would defeat Mayorga(?), or Lopez would defeat Salido(?), or that Marquez could never KTFO of Pacquiao*. if those in the “know” were always right, they would’ve given up their day jobs a long time ago.

I mean seriously Broner knocks out the Top LW (Demarco) and guys expect MORE instantly and the reason they expect more is because despite the hate they are NOT blind to his ability which is obvious… You don’t casually become a 2 or 3 division Champion… Juan Manuel Marquez took YEARS to achieve that distinction, it took Donaire years to get his belts…Should Broner go to 140 and prevail that would be 3 divisions which is NOT something that can be taken lightly…AGAIN he could get knocked out next fight but as of right now he is showing himself to be special and I like the idea of the guy unifying 135, so what if he makes Ricky Burns look lame in the process assuming Burns gets by his next opponent…If you want a fighter to be dominant that means he is going to dominate….

Its one thing to have BIG expectations its another to actually fulfill them when the bell rings and thats what makes a fighter elite (Broner is not there yet)…. ALOT of guys got in the ring with Rees and did not stop him or make him look pathetic but Broner did… Same with Pacquiao ALOT of guys got in with Cotto and did not blast him like Manny or Mayweather getting in with Shane Mosley and totally embarassing him… I am not suggesting Rees is Cotto or Mosley but when LOFTY expectations are hoisted upon you its easy to underperform… When Donaire does not stop a guy its a disaster, when Mayweather gets touched its a disaster because and Broner is about to feel the SAME thing… Wait till he goes the distance with a foe, silly boxing fans will say he needs a new trainer or that he is slipping Blah Blah Blah…..Rees came to win but it was not enough

80-1 falls under the heading of irrational exuberance there is no question that Broner was the prohibitive favorite but any odds that get much beyond 15-1 are not credible because they offer not the slightest possibility of another outcome… Broner is getting attacked because he is seeking to clean out a division and staying active while he does it…. If you are YOUNG and fighting every 3 months you are not going to be in the ring with a World Champion every night but Rees was a FORMER Champion and Demarco was the standing Champion the night Broner beat him damn near to death….Broner is actively seeking a fight with Burns to unify, that will look DAMN good down the road when people review and say Broner unifed 135 then moved on OR he unified and defended a few times…Penalizing Broner for his talent is bizarre in the extreme…

I agree that Broner is a bit over the top but that has nothing to do with his skill set and execution in the ring..If he was nothing more than an unfocused, uncommitted athlete then one of these guys should have cleaned his clock… Mayweather makes alot of mistakes as a person but for 16 years and 43 professional bouts NO ONE has been able to defeat him or even really give him a beating… Some people sound like they want to date these boxers as opposed to discussing their fighting skills, so what if he is arrogant thats part of the reason he is on HBO, dull people don’t usually play well in the US and thats just a FACT…. NO persona usually= NO $$$$$$$$$$$$$$ People want flash and Broners bringing that, if he does not get knocked out or lose he will keep banking and his skills are undeniable…

I doubt that Broner is going to prove to be as defensively gifted as Floyd Mayweather but the does NOT need to be in order to have a terrific career in boxing.. Manny Pacquiao won fighter of the decade and a titles in a solid 7 weight classes and he took plenty of fire along the way….Alot of time the key to having a solid for very good defense is the ability to NOT take FLUSH shots… Those love taps Gavin Rees landed were all mostly somewhat rolled by Broner, thats why you did not see his head violently snapping back like that uppercut did to Rees….Hate on this kid all you want he is WINNING and you are TALKING and that =$$$$$$$$$$$$ for Broner.

Broner must be one of the biggest LWs I’ve ever seen in my life. His muscular shoulders, back and lats are about the size of a small middleweight. On fight nght he looked quite nearly the same size as FMJ. I was actually quite surprised to see how Rees, with his super-short reach, was able to outbox Broner for the first two rounds and continue to land many good shots throughout the fight. It’ll be very entertaining to see Broner’s open-mouthed chin get battle tested when he steps up and starts fighting the top guys his own size (140 -154 lbs) who can really bang. This guy must be on the Chavez Jr. “mysterious diuretics” program that enables him to drop 20 lbs in the week before weigh-ins. I’d love to see match-ups with Rios, Garcia and Matthysse. Hell… the way so many fan boys are already touting Broner as the next great world-beater, why not put him in with Mayweather, JMM, Pacman or Bradley after a couple wins at Jr. Welter? But that would of course give Mayweather another huge opportunity to prove he’s not a cherry-pickin’ bandit. And the boxing world wouldn’t really want that, now would we?

Broner is a talented kid. Don’t by into the HBO hype quite yet though. It ain’t hard to look good and flash those fast combinations against a feather fisted dude like Rees. He’s almost a dwarf. What is remarkable in this fight is that fact that Rees landed at will during the first two rounds. All you guys saying Broner is all that is in for a surprise once he fights a hard punching fighter his own size.

HBO desperately needs a US fighter to take over after Floyd. Too bad he’s promoted by Al Haymond which means we’ll see him cherry-pick the remainder of his career. Burns got nothing. He’s just another Gavin Rees, only full size but less skills. Let’s see Broner fight the top guys at 140, which won’t happen, and see how he fares.

his footwork sucks or is it because he dosnt need to use it at the lower weights? it will be interesting to see if he adopts that style in the higher weight division,great hand speed,raw power but also a static target there to be hit, almost zero head movement, basically he is gonna get hit and hit much harder at 140 and if his footwork don’t improve drastically his chin better be made from titanium.

*I don’t hate him I just think he has lots of people sold on him before he has actually earned that kin d of adulation, if he ends up getting KO’d at 140 he will make all you guys look like fools. if he does the opposite he will make his sceptics look like fools, when he eats Matty’s bombs and comes back and KO’s him then yes he is a great fighter no doubt.that’s the situation that has to play out,until then the jury is still out for me and many others.

Broner is fighting guys his own size he makes 135 easy!! And no one gave Kotelnik hell when he stopped Rees at 140??? Matthysee came in at 163 according to HBO why is he not facing 154 pounders? Rees and Broner both weighed 150 fight night that’s boxing.. Who cares I’d he was short???

PEEJ

So Broner needs to defeat folks his own size. So he moved up to 135 from 130 and he needs to fight folks his own size. He just fought someone whom had a belt at 140 and then just moved back down because he lost and he needs to fight folks his own size. If I am not mistaken if you weight in as the same weight as your opponent you would be the same size unless folks are talking about hight. So now if you are taller than your opponent then you should not be fighting them because they are not your size. Gotcha. Folks know nothing about boxing

Truth

His Skills are phenominal. Level of opposition is not. he will not be challenged untill he moves to 140. There are no elit fighter at 130 or 135. Adrian stpped in the ring at 150. He is a Welter weight. Amir Khan, Devon Alexander, Andre Burto, Danny Garcia, Brandon Rios, Marcos Maidina, there is a hell of alot of game talent out there for him to fight.
