Porter Proves That Broner Is Not For Real

Adrien Broner has the potential to be one of the best boxers in the world.  He’s got all the tools.  His speed is un matched, his boxing IQ is high, he’s got decent power in both hands, so the question must be raised.  What in the world is Adrien Broner doing?  For someone that naturally skilled, someone that has that much potential, he has become a joke.  I predicted Broner to win this fight by unanimous decision, because he was the better boxer, and the faster boxer.  If Broner could just get his head in the game, it would be a whole different ball game.  I am now convinced that he never will.  Just look at his upbringing.  All you have to do is look at Broners’ father, and that will tell you everything you need to know about why he is so extremely classless, and doesn’t take the sport for real.

Through the first 5 rounds, it was a very close fight, and Broner is a notoriously slow starter.  With that being said, and Shawn Porter being the awkward boxer that he is, it was to be expected that Broner would have a rough start.  It was also expected that he would find a way to adjust, and take over the fight.  Well, that never happened.  Back and forth they went, trading rounds, and whenever Broner got in to any trouble, he would clinch.  Broner was warned for holding on several occasions, but a point was not taken.  With Sawn Porter pulling away on the scorecards in the middle rounds, Broner kept holding, and would even try to back hand Porter, not once, but twice.

By the 11th round, referee Tony weeks had finally seen enough.  He took a point from Broner for holding, and Porter was suddenly way ahead.  Broner, feeling the pressure and knowing he would need a knockout to win the fight, came out in the 12th round, and automatically knocked Porter down with a left hook, in what was the first punch of the round.  Porter, stunned by this, was never really hurt.  He simply just got hit with the perfect punch, at the perfect time.  Broner would keep trying for the KO, but it wouldn’t come.  Porter was able to outwork Broner throughout the whole fight, in what was the sloppiest fight in boxing, since the Bradly/Chavez draw.  All in all, it was a horrible fight, all thanks to Adrien Broner.
