BoxingScene.com has been advised by Golden Boy COO David Itskowitch and CEO Richard Schaefer that undefeated junior lightweight Adrien Broner will stay sharp ahead of a pivotal fall bout with RING No. 2 and WBO titlist Ricky Burns. Broner's return is "targeted" for Friday, Sept. 16 against an opponent to be determined.

A television outlet has not yet been secured for the Sept. 16, according to Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer, but the bout with Burns will soon be set.

"I know that Adrien Broner is going to be fighting for the world title against Ricky Burns," said Schaefer. "I'm actually on my way over to England to sit down with Frank Warren to finalize the fight."

The Cincinnati-based Broner (21-0, 17 KOs) is coming off an impressive one-round destruction of Jason Litzau on HBO in June. Burns (32-2, 9 KOs) of Scotland is also coming off a one-round KO victory, his over Nicky Cook last month.

[QUOTE=richardt]Stop playing DUMB!!! ANYONE who has been around boxing KNOWS that most people support the boxers of their race.

[QUOTE=richardt]Once again, you torched yourself which is pretty easy to do. When you say unanimous, lets not forget corrupt judges like the one who had Broner ahead 99 to 91. Now go give that judge the blow job you have been wanting to do. Just remember being a black man who supports black figh...
