Super featherweight contender Miguel Beltran Jr. (26-1, 17KOs) is hoping to land a title fight with WBO champion Adrien Broner (23-0, 19KOs). Broner is scheduled to return on May 19th at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, but he doesn't have an opponent set for the moment.
On Tuesday, Beltran had a hearing with Nevada's Medical Advisory Panel and he was approved for a license to box in the state. Beltran, currently ranked at #7 in the WBO rankings, is available and ready to fight Broner.
"Broner only fought one real opponent in his career and lost - but he was given a gift over Daniel Ponce De Leon. Broner's nickname is 'The Problem.' That's a good nickname for him because the only problem he has is when he fights real Mexican nationals. He likes to play with his hair brush before and after he fights. I will be happy to help him brush his hair when they wake him up after I knock him out," Beltran said.
