Beltran Hopes To Land Adrien Broner, and Knock Him Out

By Osman Rodriguez

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.

[QUOTE=4CornersKid;12017127]^^^^This. Far better than Sykes or Clay. Beltran is actually a legit/solid title defense, much like his Eloy Perez defense. Hope this happens.[/QUOTE] No this is much better. Beltran is a great prospect/contender. He was beating salgado in their fight.…

[QUOTE=EngorgedW/Blood;12017704]Difference is Broner has defense and will most likely not get knocked down 73 times in his career.[/QUOTE] Thank you. And though Broner tends to clown a little bit in the ring, like he did with Eloy Perez, he doesn't…

[QUOTE=newcastleking;12017130]Broner is the new "prince Hamed". Hes being praised as the future of boxing, the next great indestructable force. A hyped up phony badass, until he finally faces a real badass wholl teach him a lesson. Ponce deLeon already made…
