Burns Plans To Up The Pace, Make Broner Work Hard

By Chris LaBate

WBO super featherweight champion Ricky Burns (39-2, 9 KOs) has a strategy in mind for his upcoming defense against undefeated Adrien Broner (21-0, 17 KOs), which is tentative for November 26th at the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati. After watching a few of Broner's recent fights, Burns noticed that he likes to fight in a Mayweather-like pace, and waits on his opponent to land hard counter punches. Burns is going to push the action and make Broner work outside of his usual pace.  

"I have seen the last couple of fights, he is a big puncher and he has got an awkward style - similar to Floyd Mayweather. He has got quick hands and is a total counter puncher - he likes to draw you in and catch you with the left hooks coming in as well. But he likes to fight at his own pace and that is something that I would be looking to take away from him," Burns told Sky Sports Ringside.

[QUOTE=MrClutch85;11086324]Burns strategy he wants to make Broner fight at a faster pace that sounds good but attacking a good counter puncher applying pressure leaves you vulnerable to counter shots Broner has a good left check hook which is his best…

I seriously think Ricky's days are numbered I would have personaly liked to see him in against Fana before he took on Broner but it is what it is.

Ponce had success against Broner and he's much smaller there should be a wait and see approach with this kid not buying in yet

If those tactics dont work he will realise soon enough that he is being picked apart and you'd expect switch to plan B. Just what that might be is anyones guess. Im not sure what else Burns can do. Good,…

Imagine the reaction of Broner's posse if Adrien actually gets his paws on a legitimate strap. :crazy: They already proclaimed him a four-time champion after the Litzau fight. :lol1:
