thats not to say thats how reese got his lil success tho ...reese speed , versatility of the lead hand that set the right, combinations to the body were great but the power diffence and size diffrence between them were just too much..IMO ofcourse...
Overhand punches from in close go right over the shoulder...but because they tend to land downwards on Broner/Mayweather as they lean back, they rarely have a lot of mustard on them.
Broner's definitely open on the body...and he's been hit numerous times on the body and it hasn't phased him yet. We will find out if Broner is world class once he's in with someone who can match his speed and power. But like I said in another thread, the main wrinkle I see Broner may want to add is using his legs more to keep distance when he needs to. He loves to catch and counter on the inside (which is great) but against quicker, more powerful guys, that may be dangerous.
