Frank Warren: I'd Match Burns With Overhyped Broner!

By Edward Chaykovsky

Promoter Frank Warren has no problem making a unification between WBO lightweight champion Ricky Burns (35-2, 10KOs) and his WBC counterpart Adrien Broner. 

On February 16th in Atlantic City, Broner (25-0, 21KOs) will defend his belt against another British boxer, former 140-pound champion Gavin Rees (37-1-1, 18KOs). Burns will stay busy with a fight in late January or February.

Golden Boy Promotions, who have Broner, are not willing to meet the "high monetary demands" of Burns. Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer says Burns not only wants a record purse - but he also wants a "tax free" payment.

Warren stated: "If WBO lightweight boss Burns comes through a mark time third defence of his belt in late January, as expected, I’d love to pair him with any of the other 135-pound world title claimants, but particularly overhyped WBC czar Adrien Broner from Cincinnati. Already 29, Ricky now needs to be unleashed against the cream of the division if he’s to coin the rewards his talent merits."

Vasquez is promoted by Zanfer who is cozy with Top Rank.

[QUOTE=KRAFTSMAN]Nah. He won't be moving up anytime soon. He needs to maintain his zero as long as he can as per Haymon/GBP's instruction. Much like Berto, Canelo, Trout, etc. etc. But he'll soon run out of opponents with five fans in no time. I'd like to see him take on guys like Vasquez and ...

Warren on Broner-Burns for what it's worth: (2:50 onwards) - "next year, it's not far off, I'm hoping he's going to be fighting Broner, that's what we're working on"

comment by Allucard, on 12-30-2012
[QUOTE=GAR1680-Boxing]Burns is the ONLY guy at 135 worth fighting for Broner, unless Gamboa is possible. If Burns doesn’t take it, Broner may need to go up to 140 where he finds A LOT more competition: D. Garcia, Khan, Rios, Matthysse, Alvarado.[/QUOTE] So people duck him, he HAS to go find so...
