Featherweight Lightning, Great Lightweight Matchups

Hey guys,

So we got Adrien Broner, Mikey Garcia, and Gary Russell Jr. at featherweight. All three great talents with speed, accuracy, and their own strengths. What do you think of them? Where do you think they will go?

Unfortunately Gamboa is leaving that division when it was about to get red hot, but his fighting Rios is a real fun fight. You add JMM wanting to fight Mercito Gesta (a great filipino lightweight) at 135, things can mix up and get ugly!

Other featherweight title holders or worthy mentions are Salido, Juanma, Ponce De Leon, Gonzalez, and maybe Cabellero and Hasegawa. Do you think everyone will mix it up at one point to a very beautiful soup? Will Donaire ever move up to 126 or 135 any time soon to mix it up? Things can erupt in the lower divisions in a way that 147 or 154 hasn't lately.

I'm very excited about all these talents.

I'd say Broner is like a tricky, slick offensive fighter with some good counters, and good hand and foot speed. A very good athlete. Garcia is a very methodical, careful, and powerful boxer puncher. He waits and finds openings and pieces his opponents apart. Russell is an offensive powerhouse who overwhelms opponents with speed, angles, and volume. Mercito Gesta to me sort of fights like Garcia... intelligently and carefully, and strikes with great power and accuracy.

Let the good times roll!
