WBC Junior Welterweight Diamond Champion
Last night on Showtime Boxing at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, I witness Three-Division World Champion Mikey Garcia (37-0, 30Kos) dismantle with a dominant display of Ring Generalship enactment against Four-Time Division Word Champion Adrien Broner (33-3, 24 Kos). REAL TALK!
I have to tip my “B” hat to your Boy Garcia for proving to me and all the naysayers just how good this Kat can be when the competition gets better and better. I was Speechless to see Garcia handle Broner a very strong opponent, is third loss of his career.
For twelve full rounds of action Garcia did not seem intimated or bothered by anything Broner brought to the table. Garcia had Broner figured out from the “Jump”. To me Broner did not look like a fighter who followed the “Game Plan” of his corner at all. I must admit that the betting circles had it right all along.
The bothersome pattern that Broner is falling into is real right now when faced with top-notch competition. Back in December 2013, Marcos Maidana handed Broner his first Unanimous-Decision defeat and June 2015 Shawn Porter defeated Broner for his second lost now fast forward another 2 years to now and once again Broner loses to a Unanimous-Decision to the Superior Fighter in Mikey Garcia. REAL TALK!
The Judges scored it 117-111, 116-112 and 116-112. For now, the New WBC Diamond Title Junior Welterweight Champion Mikey Garcia. Congratulation Mikey this was by far one of your best performances in that squared circle.
That being said I refused to think that Broner is a done fighter at this point in his career. AB is still young and talented enough to bounce back and make thing right for his career. To me the boy is gifted but definitely needs to reevaluate his approach come next fight. REAL TALK! Your thoughts on this one?
