Mayweather Wants Broner vs Gamboa, Martinez vs Dirrell

By Rick Reeno

Floyd Mayweather Jr. (42-0, 26KOs) informed BoxingScene.com of two fights that he would love to see finalized in the future. We asked Mayweather for his opinion of WBO super featherweight champion Adrien Broner, an up and coming superstar who regards Floyd as one of his idols.

Mayweather expects very big things from Broner (23-0, 19KOs), but he would like to see him matched against Cuban sharpshooter Yuriorkis Gamboa (21-0, 16KOs) in the future. 

"Adrien Broner, I think I've seen him two or three times. He's a strong, solid young fighter. In the future I think Adrien Broner would match up good with Yuri Gamboa," Mayweather told BoxingScene.com.

When asked about a possible catch-weight fight with middleweight Sergio Martinez (49-2-2, 28KOs), Mayweather threw out the idea of having Martinez fight super middleweight Andre Dirrell (20-1, 14KOs). Mayweather revealed that Dirrell is now involved in a working relationship with Mayweather Promotions.

"I think a guy who I'm working with, Andre Dirrell, and Martinez - would be a good matchup. They talk about me and Martinez at a catch-weight, but we don't know what the future holds for Floyd Mayweather. Like I said before, I'm not ducking or dodging anyone. I'm not hard to find, I'm everywhere," Mayweather said.

Broner would put Gamboa to bed! Honestly I think Broner can beat everyone that Floyd can. Martinez would never fight Dirrel. Fighting the Matrix with those cycling skills would be career suicide for Sergio.
