Adrien Broner: After DeMarco, It's Going To Get Bigger

By Luis Sandoval

This Saturday night Adrien “The Problem” Broner will be moving up in weight and trying to become a two time world champion as he takes on current WBC Lightweight title holder Antonio DeMarco in Atlantic City.

Broner is known for being an animated fighter and talking to or about his opponents but in the weeks leading up to this fight, Broner has been quite the opposite.

When Antonio DeMarco spoke to BoxingScene’s official radio show The Boxing Lab, he said he felt Broner had been quiet because Broner understood he had a real fight ahead of him. BoxingScene caught up with Broner and asked him what he thought about DeMarco’s comment and why he had been more reserved this time around.

“I'm going to be me regardless. Every fight is serious. But DeMarco, he's not a guy who's going to trash talk. He's about business and that's what I like about him. That's how I know he's going to come to fight and he's going to be prepared. I'm well prepared. I train so hard for every fight. This is definitely one of my biggest fights ever and from here on out it's going to get bigger” Broner would tell BoxingScene.

Broner was in good spirits and he’s been in Southern California since Friday as he was at the Fantasy Springs Casino to see long time friend Rau’shee Warren make his professional debut and also sat ringside at the Abner Mares-Anselmo Moreno fight this Saturday night at the Staples Center.

While Broner has been a bit more subdued, he did manage to give us some of the Broner we are used to hearing.

“But I'm very focused. I really don't have to do a lot of talking. You know he's a nice guy. If I do talk then I'll seem like the bully. But I'm still going to be me. And anybody still can get it. AfriCans, AmeriCans, MexiCans. Anybody still can get it and he's going to get it” said Broner with a smile.

Broner will look to keep his perfect record intact and record his biggest victory to date as he tries to dethrone DeMarco in his first fight at Lightweight.

[QUOTE=SkillspayBills;12695885]I've said it before and I will say it again. By the end of 2013 Adrien Broner will be the unified LW champion of the world. First Demarco, then Burns, then Gesta/Vasquez.[/QUOTE] that's really not going to happen.... he'll probably…

I think its going to be a long night for broner especially if demarco stays behind that jab plus I don't know if broner is going to be strong in the later rounds its going to be a good fight…

One thing I like about Broner, despite getting exposed by Ponce and weight cheating his last fight, is that he doesn't seem to be afraid to fight anybody despite his only credibility revolving around that 0. That's a risky business…
