Broner Fires Back at Salido: I'm on a Different Level!

On Sunday afternoon I talked to a surprisingly-animated featherweight champion Orlando Salido, who took some digs at junior lightweight titlist Adrien Broner.

Coming off of a scintillating rematch with Juan Manuel Lopez last month in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Salido admitted that he isnít too impressed by the landscape in the featherweight division and is considering a move up in weight, with Broner being his chief objective.

The usually mild-mannered Salido took his swipes at Broner, one of the most flamboyant fighters in the sport, and said that he would love to break his jaw and shut his mouth, among other choice actions.

Wanting to get Bronerís thought on Salidoís remarks, I touched base with the Cincinnati, Ohio native on Monday afternoon. And while Broner received a direct message containing a link to the article in which Salido bashed him, he insisted that he didnít even bother to look it over.

ďFor what? I donít got to read up on that,Ē stated Broner. ďThatís all talk. You know me, I donít look up on fighters, I donít even look at their blogs, I donít watch what theyíre putting up, I donít look at none of that. The only thing I watch is Floyd Mayweather and myself.Ē

Broner canít knock Salidoís ambition but feel his class will show if such a fighter ever comes off.

ďHe just wants the shine I got, thatís all,Ē Broner continued. ďHeís fighting on Showtime and heís a Showtime fighter. Heís trying to get to where Iím at. He beat Lopez twice. To me, thatís a B+, B- fighter with no chin. I donít knock him down, I congratulate him on that but they need to stay in their lane. Iím just on a different level and when these guys get in the ring with me itís going to show.Ē

Broner is next penciled in to make the second defense of his title on May 19th in an HBO-televised showcase at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas underneath the Lamont Peterson-Amir Khan rematch. Twice-beaten British fighter Gary Sykes appears to be in the running to be Bronerís opponent on that evening but the 22-year insists he is ready for any and all comers.

ďI donít duck nobody, anybody they put in front of me I will fight,Ē said Broner. ďAt the end of the day I just want to cut all the talk. Iím not a promoter, Iím a professional boxer and Iíll fight anybody they put in front of me. I donít care who it is. It could be Sykes, it could be Koo-Wan, it could be Hu-Han, Iím ready. Iíve been ready. I donít have fights and take off. I fight on Saturday and Iím back in the gym on Monday.Ē

The more this little kunt talks, the more I want to see him get his jaw shattered.

[QUOTE=TyrantT316]This is what happens to guys like Mayweather and now Broner. A fighter with a big win challenges him, but that fighter is smaller and limited. Haters say Broner is scared and ducking by turning down the call out. Eventually Broner fights him, wins impressively and haters call it...

[QUOTE=Realizniguhnit]Maybe you should just admit your a fanboy of a fighter that hasn't proven anything yet in his career. Broner is like buying a spec stock, nothing more than very risky bet. Oh and I was very serious about stopping a 5'5 Perez anyday of the week, your young man, don't go aroun...

If Salido can carry his power with him to super feather, I would definitely favour him despite the reach disadvantage. Broner is not nearly as proven as him.

He should be careful of his opinion on "Showtime Fighters"...he may need to fight on the network one day.
