Broner with his typical shelling up getting picked apart. Every time he gets backed off against the ropes (which is quite often), he doesn’t really do anything else but put up his guards, smile like an idiot, and get hit. He really isn’t gonna win a lot of fights against the best boxers with this flat-footed style.
Mikey looked terrific. Admittedly, Broner has been a shell of his former self since moving up from feather and lightweight, where he once terrorized smaller, inept guys. The last good opponent he beat was Paulie Malignaggi (and only barely). The Maidana beatdown left him scarred as we saw when he let Sean Porter kick his a*s. The reflexes are still there, the hands are still fast, and he can still get into shape. His nerve is gone.
The economics, however, are starting to turn cruel and that won’t favor more sleepy performances like this one. Showtime had to basically give away this card, in the hope of luring fans back to boxing. Does anyone think it helped? It was an enjoyable enough one-sided performance, a fine debut at 140 for Garcia. But a has-been like Broner isn’t an advertisement for boxing thrills.
Great comment again! You’re right, Broner was excellent in lower weight divisions where he didn’t have his back against the wall (or ropes) and could exploit his talent and physique. When push comes to shove, I don’t feel like he’s got the heart and courage to go all out or to make the adjustments. Not a very good fight for boxing except for a couple of rounds, but a good fight for Garcia career.
Broner isn’t a has been casual he did a good job defending and not getting knocked down.
Garcia vs. Lomachenko – will it happen?
A well deserved win by a superior technician and much more active fighter against to a guy that lately, he is only good for talking and brawling. All the judges were too nice to Browner giving him rounds he doesn’t deserved. In my opinion he was just able to won just one of them. Anyhow, Garcia dominated the fight showing without discussions the great champion he is.
Perhaps Broner should increase the amount of material and trimmings on his shorts until they become a skirt. Sliding up and down the ropes and attempting to become a dodger and a runner a’la Mayweather is beyond his capabilities. Totally outboxed by a thinking, talented oponent in Garcia. The fight was spoiled somewhat by the nasal whine- like commentary of one of the announcers.
