Honestly, Broner is really not that good. Especially against guys who are his size. Speed is his only attribute. He will never be a defensive genius because hes not a defensive fighter. People only tried to make the comparison to Floyd because Broner tried to use it. Floyd is a different person though. He takes time to perfect his craft. Broner uses his time to be a clown.

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

Maidana may not be all that great, but the kid comes to fight. You don't see him clowning around making a mockery of his opponent. He comes into the ring all business.

None of those guys can beat Floyd.

The best chances would be a Floyd-Pac showdown circa 08-10.

Or Floyd-Mosley circa 2006-2007.

Floyd-Cotto circa 2007-2008.


He'd kill anyone between 140 and 154 at this moment.

Lara would give him the best shot.

GGG at 160, but Floyd still take him.

We'd seriously have to move all the way up to 168 for someone to stop Floyd and that would be Ward because he's too big.

He needs to fight Maidana or Pacquiao. Khan is a terrible pick. A past his prime, shot, former Lightweight champion Julio Diaz was out boxing him in a very close fight.

Garcia, even Porter, and Thurman are all better guys than Khan right now.

Love to see Mayweather fight Lara at 154. Lara is a better boxer than Canelo.
