Adrien Broner May Be Closer Than You Think Tweet 0 COMMENTARY | Despite co-starring in amusingly vacuous videos and exchanging a steady sprinkling of loving words, there seems to be a growing tension between Floyd Mayweather and Adrien Broner. And while both have said that a Mayweather-Broner bout is not ever going to happen, there’s no denying that the mutual admiration society founded by “Baby Bro” and “Big Bro” is not what it used to be.

In 2007, De La Hoya was doing surprisingly well, pumping a jab in Mayweather’s face repeatedly and getting out to an early lead. For some reason, though, De La Hoya quit jabbing and Mayweather came on in the second half to pull out a split decision. It makes sense then that Alvarez’s plan will try to incorporate elements of both Castillo’s strategy and De La Hoya’s. It’s a good guess that Alvarez will try to jab his way in, cut off the ring and try to make Mayweather fight in an enclosed space where he will then test Mayweather’s ability to withstand both his power and his punching volume.
