Default Will Ponce de Leon be Broner's Castillo?

When Floyd Mayweather's resume is discussed you often hear people bring up the first fight with Jose Luis Castillo, Floyd's closest fight to date and one many feel he came up short.

Adrien Broner, a new up and coming fighter with superstar potential had a close fight of his own with Daniel Ponce de Leon, a fight many feel he lost.

Will this Ponce de Leon fight haunt Broner the rest of his career? Does he need to hold a rematch to settle the score?

What's your thoughts?

Not the same level of fight though. Castillo is a potential HOF fighter, was the #1 LW in the world.

But in the sense of "Well Floyd had a really close fight, could have lost to Castillo the frist fight", than yes it's similar. I think Broner should rematch him at some point. It was a close fight. Could easily see a draw or slight win for either fighter.

It wasn't close to the robbery people make it out to be.

It's just one of those close fights where no matter what, somebody would be unhappy with the decision

Broner took over the fight and landed the far better shots IMO.

Broner has shown significant improvement sine then. I would like to see the rematch to shut people up but I know what would happen.

Both fights were close, but Mayweather-Castillo I was a far far far bigger fight in the grand scheme of things.

I thought Broner lost, just like I thought he lost to Quintero, but both fights were close. In De Leon Fight 5 round out of 10 could've gone either way really. If De Leon goes on to win a title, what he has decent shot at doing in current Super Featherweight division, rematch would definitely do well for his legacy.

When you're a prospect and have a 'close' fight vs Ponce then you deserve the L.

Ponce is so 1 dimensional and uncoordinated.

Its just one of those instances where boxer "A" didnt do as well as expected and boxer "B" did better than expected. Every boxer has that one guy or style (sometimes multiple), that he struggles with. Broner still landed more and better shots and seemed to control the fight.

In Floyds case he won in the judges(only people who matter) eyes because he beat Castillo at his own game. People who are bias and expected a certain outcome pre fight (fans, commentators, etc) feel Floyd lost because he wasnt as dominate as he was in previous fights and Castillo did better than expected.
