Ali was also a lot better than Holmes was. Although Holmes was very good himself. I feel that's going to be a similar thing with Broner-Mayweather.

I get the sense Broner is trying and forcing himself to be like Mayweather more than Holmes did with Ali though. Holmes spent time with Ali, up close and personal. I think things naturally rubbed off on him and he had some good physical attributes for it to work. I think defensively, Broner doesn't seem natural with how he defends.

Let's just hope a 40 year old Mayweather doesn't get a beating by a prime Broner
Just what I was thinking.

Documentaries and articles could only do so much. It's always good to get the perspective of someone who was actually alive during this time for I wasn't.

Thanks for the clarification Dan.
