I do believe AB could have won...but official cards were too inclined to his side (100-90 ???)...the kind of scores that make you think about biased judges

I think it's more a case of judges scoring the fight round by round, without thinking about debatable rounds, which is poor, especially for officials, I don't doubt that there was value of education, and validity in the scoring of all the judges for each and every round, and at least when this is the case, you don't have to worry about uneducated judges whos' skills aren't up to the standard that the judgement of the sport needs.

I don't like Broner's style, I don't really care about the Broner persona. Broner's antics is just marketing.

Broner is very susceptible to getting hit. He might be economical and he might have a tight defense. Those are golden. However, he it a sitting duck with that wide stance he has. I really hate it no matter if it helps your power, because you will get hit when you face a good boxer. I'm not sure how familiar you are with the central line theory (you should read some of Bruce Lee stuff), but if you want to control the fight...you have to control the central line to your opponent even if you move around. When fighters move around broner, even if it's just a few steps, Broner becomes an easy target. Molina was able to clip him several times with an overhand just like Maidana. Of course...Molina is smaller and not as strong.

Adrien Broner is yet to develop that maturity that a champion needs, I think this is why he seems to choose showing everyone what an easy time he's having rather than trying his best to win the fight, I saw a lot of that in this fight, which is why the fight turned out to be closer. By his own standards, Carlos Molina did very well in my opinion, he may not have caused Broner to be in any physical or mental distress, he never caused any tactical puzzles for the other side, but he did take advantage of the complacence of Adrein Broner, for as much of the time as he could, which he deserves credit for.

Back onto the topic of the judges, I think 98-92 for Broner is fair and legitmimate, and to be honest, although it may have been harsh towards Molina, and it didn't give an accurate impression of the fight, 99-91 wasn't scandalous.
