Former three division world champion Adrien Broner (27-1, 22KOs) is moving down to 140-pounds, but he doesn't rule out future fights at the 147-pound limit against welterweight champions Marcos Maidana and Manny Pacquiao.
Broner, who suffered a decision loss to Maidana in December, is looking to bounce back on May 3rd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Broner will face Carlos Molina as part of the Showtime Pay-Per-View undercard to Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Maidana.
Following his first career loss to Maidana, Broner exercised a rematch clause to face Maidana again. But then he stepped back to allow his close friend, Mayweather, to face Maidana in a unification. But he warns that because of the rematch clause Maidana will not be able to avoid a return match in the future.
"Boxing is boxing and business is business. I opened up another fight for my big brother. And I'm happy for him and I'm happy for Maidana, and I gave them a chance to make that fight happen," Broner said. "[Maidana] has got to fight me. He said the fight was too soon and he was having a baby. He could have ten babies, because at the end of the day he still has to fight Adrien Broner."
"If somebody don't take too much punishment [against Mayweather], we can fight in July. Because I'm going right back to camp [after Molina], no partying and no breaks for me."
Another fight that interests Broner is Pacquiao - and Broner said he is willing to take the fight at whatever weight that Pacquiao requires.
"I'd fight him at any weight. If I could make 115 to fight Pacquiao - I will do it," Broner said.Tags: Adrien Broner
