Adrien Broner: Nobody at 140 Would Pose a Problem

By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

WBC lightweight champion Adrien Broner (26-0, 22KOs) is seriously considering a a move to 140-pounds as early as his next fight. Broner is hoping to fight WBO champion Ricky Burns, but he won't wait around for the match.

Broner doesn't see any of the top names in the junior welterweight division - including Brandon Rios, Amir Khan, Danny Garcia and Juan Manuel Marquez - who would pose a problem for him.

Broner retained his WBC title for the first time on Saturday night at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, with a fifth round stoppage of British challenger Gavin Rees.

"I'm not going to wait on Ricky Burns. If he fights [me] or doesn't fight [me], oh well. Nobody [poses a challenge for me] at 140. I'll make them all look the same. I'll fight them all different. Different strokes for different folks," Broner said.

[QUOTE=el_mas_chingon;13053209]I think at 140 Broner has a good chance....to get his jaw broken vs the guys you mentioned but he would probably do good vs Garcia, Peterson, Judah or Khan![/QUOTE] Which is why he'll never fight either Matthysse or Rios.…
