Broner: I'd Like To Fight Pacquiao Before He Leaves

In his debut in the 140-pound division, three-division world champion Adrien "The Problem" Broner bounced back from the first loss of his career with a unanimous decision win (99-91, 98-92, 100-90) over Carlos Molina.

Broner (28-1, 22 KO), who was fighting for the first time since his surprising loss to Maidana last December, started slow and was hit by a crushing overhand right from the confident Molina in the second round. While locked up in the third, Broner wrestled and tossed Molina (17-2-1, 13 KOs) to the ground, earning a hard warning by referee Kenny Bayless.

Broner picked up the pace in the middle rounds and took control of the bout with an impressive inside fight game.

"I feel good. It was a comeback fight," Broner said. "I shook the cobwebs, looked good and got the victory.

"At the end of the day, I don't make my fights. I'll fight anybody. I'd like to fight (Manny) Pacquiao before he leaves."

Molina admitted to being frustrated by the speed of Broner.

"I felt I stayed in there too much," Molina said. "He's a fast fighter with a fast jab. It was tricky for me to time the jab and I felt frustrated. I was trying to do what my corner was telling me to do, but it didn't happen."

Broner trainer Mike Stafford praised his pupil for his performance in a new weight division.

"I think he looked great," Stafford said. "He didn't get hit and he took the guy apart. He gave him a boxing lesson. People have to realize Adrien is still young. He's in a new weight class and he has to figure this weight class out."

With Oscar feeling generous, he has offered to have Canelo fight Manny, and Broner has been asking for his for 2 weeks. I still haven't heard anything from TR except Marquez/Alvarado...NO BUENO! Manny should choose a GBP opponent, and call…
