Broner Hints That He May Drop Down To 140, Even 135

By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

Adrien Broner (27-0, 22KOs) became a word champion at a third different weight after securing a split-decision victory over Paulie Malignaggi to win the WBA welterweight title. Broner was given the fight by scores of 117-111 and 115-113 on two judges' scorecards, while the third gave it to Malignaggi 115-113. Broner, who had never gone beyond 10 rounds before, was stepping up two divisions from lightweight to take on Malignaggi in his home city of New York. Malignaggi showed plenty of grit and determination at Barclays Center but was ultimately outworked by his 23-year-old opponent.

Afterwards, Broner did not rule out the possibility to heading down to 140 or even dropping back down as low as 135. It depends on the fight being offered, says Broner.

"Now its time to go get more belts in someone else's weight class. I don't know if it will be at [welterweight], light welterweight or maybe I'll go down to lightweight. It really don't matter, we're just having fun right now. I felt good at [147]. I was strong as you can see. Whatever is the better fight for me. I don't care what weight it's at. If it's the best fight for me career, that's where we'll be at. But I was comfortable [at 147]," Broner said.

[QUOTE=.:: JSFD26 ::.;13497227]He won't drop to 140 and since they said Maidana could be his next fight he won't stay at 147. If Maidana hits him with what Paulie hit him last night he gets KOed. Who the f*ck is…
