By Bill Emes

Adrien Broner (24-0, 20KOs) dominated and stopped Vicente Escobedo (26-4) in five rounds at the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio. Broner was a little upset that he didn't get a chance to knock Escobedo out. As he was battering Escobedo against the ropes, Escobedo's corner threw in the towel.

"It just shows good fighters and elite fighters don't mix," Broner told "I didn't really get done what I wanted to do, but I did what I had to do to get the victory. I'm going to go home and watch the tape and see what mistakes I made."

Broner is now moving up to the lightweight division. He wants to face WBC champion Antonio DeMarco next, and then WBO junior welterweight champion Juan Manuel Marquez - likely at a catch-weight.

"I'm going up to lightweight. Like they say, guys like me don't come around for decades and decades. My training ethic, I can really do what I want in the sport, as long as I stayed disciplined and loyal to the sport," Broner said.

"Now we're moving on. The task will only get bigger from here. We're going to lightweight to give all of them hell. DeMarco can be next, Marquez after that...[Brandon] Rios. Anyone can get it."

Would love to see DeMarco-Broner if DeMarco gets past Molina.

[QUOTE=jtiger777]well that means they didnt use them and he did lol[/QUOTE]That doesn't make it an acceptable form of promotion. He is lucky the plug wasn't pulled on his career.

[QUOTE=jtiger777]well there u have it brother u finally got it[/QUOTE]Finally got it? I have had it for a long time. That is why no one can say that Broner did not make racial slurs. Golden Boy Promotions had to do a lot of cleanup after what Broner did. Even Broner's videos were removed from you...

[QUOTE=richardt]None of them used racial slurs like Broner according to you for "hype" purposes. No way in hell does a fighter need racial slurs for attention, hype, etc. That goes without saying.[/QUOTE] well that means they didnt use them and he did lol

[QUOTE=richardt]Broner saying that a boxer cannot be equal to him in a particular catagory because in his words "at the end of the day, he is Mexican" IS a racial slur BY UNIVERSALLY ACCEPTED DEFINITIONS! Not arguable, not up for debate![/QUOTE] well there u have it brother u finally got it
