Paul Spadafora Wants a Showdown With Adrien Broner

By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

Former champion Paul Spadafora (47-0-1, 19KOs) would love to get a fight with the current WBC lightweight king Adrien Broner (26-0, 22KOs). Spadafora, now a junior welterweight contender, was going to face Vernon Paris on an April date, but says the fight recently fell through because Paris is having some contractual issues.

Broner is looking to get a fight with WBO champion Ricky Burns. If that fight doesn't happen, Broner will head up to the junior welterweight division - and Spadafora would like to be the guy to test him at the weight.

"I think that's a perfect fight to make. I think he's a great fighter. I've followed his career and he's looking better with each fight. And I would love to get the opportunity to fight him," Spadafora told BoxingScene.com.

Would love to see Broner brutalize Spadafora. It would be the first time I'd be rooting for Adrian..

Maybe I am thinking in the past but last I checked Spaddy can fight. No he isn't a draw...he has had a lot of drama in his life but this guy has mad skills. I would love to see him…
