I think he has terrible footwork & footspeed.
I am utterly convinced he is far from what he is made out to be.

A poor mans Berto rather than a poor mans Floyd if you ask.
Come on. You have to admit he's much better than Berto. After you mentioned his footwork I went back and took a look. Man the boy's footwork is deceivingly good. The way he controls distance leaving room to punch is Mayweatherish. Every boxer has idols. Ali-SRR, Foreman-Liston, now Broner-Mayweather. That shouldn't count against a guy.

I will still pick broner to win by a UD (like a 116-112 or 115-113 type scorecard) But at the same time i wouldnt be shocked if burns wins.

That's not how boxing works, I think Broner should gun fro Burns in May and Vazquez in August to claim lightweight kingship.
