Broner: I Want To Stop The Mayweather Comparisons

By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

WBC lightweight champion Adrien Broner (25-0, 21KOs) wants to put an end to the constant comparisons to pound-for-pound great Floyd Mayweather Jr. (43-0, 26KOs).

Broner is often compared to Mayweather. Broner fights in a similar but more aggressive style. They share the same manager, Al Haymon. And they are both flashy and outspoken. Last but certainly not least, they are both undefeated.

While Broner often admits that Mayweather was one of his inspirations, the 23-year-old fighter is looking to distance himself from his boyhood idol. Broner wants to establish his own name and build his own legacy, and not piggyback on the recognized brand of another boxer.

"I just want to stop the comparisons. Floyd is amazing. He's got his own legacy and I'm working on my own legacy. I don't ride on no one's wave. He has his own wave. Hopefully my wave be bigger and after this fight [with Antonio DeMarco] it probably is. [Mayweather] is a tremendous fighter, a world class fighter, the best of his era and I'm the best of my era," Broner said.

Do people forget how aggressive Floyd was in his younger days? Leading with two or three left hooks? Double or triple straight right hands? At the very same age that Broner is at now. Broner and some of you sound…
