Broner-Sykes Bout Being Discussed, But Far From Done

By Rick Reeno

A source close to the negotiations has confirmed that British boxer Gary Sykes (20-2, 5KOs) is being considered as the opponent for WBO super featherweight champion Adrien Broner (23-0, 19KOs), who returns on May 19th at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. Amir Khan challenges WBA/IBF junior welterweight champion Lamont Peterson in an HBO televised rematch in the main event.

While Sykes has accepted the fight, which the boxer disclosed is a non-title ten rounder, BoxingScene was told there are numerous issues to sort out before a fight with Broner can be finalized - including Sykes' ability to secure a work visa in a timely fashion. The fight is "far from done" I was told, and the probability of the bout being finalized, at the moment, is "50-50."

Of course Broner looks great against weaker men. But we all saw what happened when he faced Ponce de Leon, who is past his prime, smaller and isnt all that fast or slick, BUT is very strong and well experienced.…
