Even Zab has some great skill at times, he just struggles to put it together for a whole, hard 12 rounds.

i'd like to see him at 135 for a while. demarco took his shots a lot better than the guys at 130 could. after he settles at 135 he can think about stepping up to 140 or even the right fighter at 147.
His improvement is amazing actually. Compared to his 12th fight against some guy that lots of people think he lost nearly every round to, though I had it a draw (which I thought was very fair, though you might have been able to give the other guy another round, but not Broner), he has improved dramatically. More than most do in fact.

His style back then was awful. Absolutely awful. It was as amateur as amateur gets. He would spazz out with wild, completely unthinking, useless flurries of punches that had no power, accuracy, purpose or any design to them whatsoever. Very different from now. He was incredibly inaccurate too, which really surprised me. He struggled mightily to land one good, clean punch on this guy, who did not have good defense.

It's shocked me to see how far he's come. I really like him, not as a person, but as a fighter. He's skilled, but fights which is all I want to see. Can't wait to see him truly tested against another good fighter though. Should be soon hopefully, as I doubt he will take much of a backwards step from Demarco.

I'd like to see him in against someone who will push aggressively and awkwardly as DeLeon did to see what type of forward progress he's really made and whether that is just a style he struggles with.
