Plain and simple, if Taylor wants any chance to win this fight he must take risks. And that means he must be willing to open up more than he has in some other fights. He has a tendency to play defense and put the ear muffs up way too much. If he fights in that manner consistently against Broner then Broner will pick him apart round by round.

Taylor does have very good speed and decent power. He is skilled and can fight. If he is willing to open up and let his hands go, he could push Broner. But he has to want to and not be content to just put up a decent effort and hoping to go the distance. We will see on Saturday.
