Adrien Broner Wants Marquez Clash, Talks Brandon Rios

By Luis Sandoval

Adrien “The Problem” Broner is coming off a dominant victory over Antonio DeMarco where he captured his second world title in a second weight division. Broner was in Inglewood, CA on Thanksgiving Day as he participated in the Annual Watson Turkey Bowl as he played in a football game and mingled with everyone who was in attendance.

Broner spoke to BoxingScene afterwards as he talked about his win last weekend but more importantly, he spoke about who he’d like to fight next.

“I'm going to wait and see how this Pacquiao-Marquez fight pans out. But I'd love to fight Marquez” revealed Broner.

While Broner’s eyes are set on a possible Marquez clash, one fight that fans also find intriguing is a fight with Brandon Rios who recently left the Lightweight division and made a strong statement at Junior Welterweight as he beat undefeated Mike Alvarado.
When Broner was on BoxingScene’s official radio show The Boxing Lab a while back, he said he felt Rios would be the type of opponent that would allow him to showcase his skills and be a great night in his career. Broner was asked what he thought of a possible Rios fight.

“[He’s] a good fighter. Still has a lot to learn, just like myself. We're both students of the game. And if that fight happens, it happens. Like I said, anybody still can get it” Broner would tell BoxingScene.

Most likely it looks like Broner would need to move up to 140 pounds to make either of those fights happen but he assures he’s never one to shy away from tough fights.
“No matter if it’s tough, I want all tough fights. I'm going to make it look the same. I just have that ability” said Broner.

Broner will be in attendance at the Andre Berto-Robert Guerrero fight this Saturday night.

marquez v. broner = cotto v. canelo equals toss up on what dictates the fight. broner v. rios would not even be a contest. broner easily.
