Broner will have at least 5 losses on his record in the next several years (assuming he keeps fighting). Way too many flaws to overcome and he gets hit in the head too much at a young age. Jermaine Taylor 2.0

Bernard Hopkins was robbed twice against Jermaine Taylor back in 2005. Watched the fight again, and check the compubox stats. Hopkins has the best resume in boxing, and he's still kicking some @$$ at age 49.






Same with the first fight Hopkins out landed taylor.

Interesting comparison. Very interesting.

There was a time when Taylor was considered the next big thing and the best young fighter in the sport. It wouldn't shock me if Broner took a similar route.

It will be a lot funner to watch with Broner, though. He seems like a pretty despicable person, whereas Taylor seemed like a quiet, unassuming cat with a slight stutter.

Btw, I'd still really like to see Broner get his wig split by Matthysse before he's too exposed and everyone expects it. Lucas would annihilate him.

They're saying Broner is the next Prince Naseem Hamed.

I see him more as a Zab Judah.

But hay, maybe this is his Montell Griffith moment and he comes back strong.

I hope Broner can show some humility due to his embarrassing performance. I'd respect him if he does. Somebody (definitely not his pops) needs to sit him down and have a man to man talk with him about a lot things not even related to boxing because his act (not quite sure if it's an act) isn't getting him anywhere. It doesn't help that he is not a great fighter either. Hopefully, he can grow up because of this. If not, he'll be stocking shelves at Lowe's in 5 years.

Jermaine Taylor's biggest problem imo was that he had gotten too comfortable and made no effort to improve his fight game. Shortly after his 2 fights w/Hopkins, he hired Manny Steward as a trainer. There were many occasions where Jermaine would blatantly ignore Manny's instructions during training as well as during the fight (look up Taylor/Winky Wright fight). His stubbornness caused his downfall.

Word.

Its a thin line between being a clown and a pro. And he's all over that line.

Losses: Joe Calzaghe (Controversial loss. 50/50 could have gone to either fighter), Jermain Taylor (Another Controversial losses. Hopkins was robbed in their 2 fights), Roy Jones Jr.(Roy was just flat out better than him during that time, but he eventually surpasses Roy because of his longevity, and his changes his fighting style as he grows older), Chad Dawson.

Sugar Ray Robinson, Henry Armstrong, and Sam Langford, and Sugar Ray Leonard have the best resumes of all time. Duran ranks higher than SRL because he fought many times than Leonard, and won a Middleweight title an an aging boxer.

I'll give him Tito and Pavlik (who really hasnt been heard from since), the others were either past their prime or not top level fighters
