By Phil D. Jay

WBO fringe world titlist Vicente Escobedo (25-3, 15KOs) is on the verge of cashing in his best career performance against Lonnie Smith last month, with a shot at one of the super-featherweight champions in 2012.

The 30 year-old from Woodland, has been talked about as a possible opponent for WBO champion Adrien Broner in the coming months, but told WBN that he will take on any the belt holders at 130lbs.

“I would like a shot at Broner of course. I think I have the style and skills to beat him,” Escobedo told World Boxing News.

“But i'll go for the first champion my manager and promoter can make a deal with and if that is Broner then I welcome it.

“He is a very talented fighter but I see chinks in his armour, although I wouldn’t tell what they were.”

Escobedo surprised many in his latest victory, not with the result itself, but with the manor of the job he did on Smith, who was undefeated in five years prior to his first round knockout loss in which he hit the canvas three times.

“I suppose that considering that I knocked out a good fighter in less than a round, you could argue that it was my best performance to date,” explained Escobedo.

“But before I think of world titles, I will be back in my hometown on May 12th in a bout televised on Telefutura again.

"The main goal is of course the title shot and we are talking about it for after my next bout. That’s what I am gearing up for,” he added.

[QUOTE=killacash]Its a lightning bolt, hence his nickname Lonnie Lightning Smith. He has the flag there cause of his style. I doubt he has any heritage rooting from Mexico. http://www.examiner.com/sites/default/files/styles/image_full_width/hash/184953_192771134089935_190277011006014_532320_3394...

Here's hoping that Chente gets his shot!

Mos def gonna be pulling for Chente, kids from my area, is a really humble guy and if he beats his next opponent, then why not give him a shot?!?!?!

It'll be interesting to see how Broner deals with the height and reach advantage of someone not named Jason Litzau.

Get some reading glasses. The Mexican flag is not green, white, red, green, white red. Those are two separate logos, not a ripped flag.
