Adrien Broner Says Lucas Matthysse is Next Opponent

By Edward Chaykovsky

Former three division world champion Adrien Broner is looking to face Lucas Matthysse in the next chapter of his junior welterweight quest. This Saturday night at the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Broner and Matthysse will appear in separate Showtime televised fights.

Broner (28-1, 22 KOs) will face Emmanuel Taylor (18-2, 12 KOs) in the Showtime main event, while Lucas “La Maquina” Matthysse (35-3, 33 KOs) will square off with Mexico’s unbeaten Roberto “Massa” Ortiz (31-0-1, 24 KOs) in a 12-round bout for Ortiz’s WBC Silver Super Lightweight Title. 

“This isn’t a joke.  There should be three winners on Saturday: two ABs (Adrien Broner and Andre Berto) and then my next opponent, Lucas Matthysse.  That’s what’s happening," Broner said  “(Taylor) knows what he’s in for.  Everybody knows what they’re in for when they fight a guy like me.  But, at the end of the day, I’m going to be victorious."

[QUOTE=FerFAL;14915396]ssshhh... you'll give these guys a stroke, they cant handle the truth. Peterson was supposed to destroy Matthysse. Freaking Mike Dallas Jr. was supposed to be too fast and young for him, according to Paulie Malignagi, lietrally 3 seconds later…

Broner will get walked through by Matthysse just like he did maidana he will try and stand in the center of the ring with no movement and get walked through. Brokers second loss is coming
