Ricky Burns: I Would Love To Face Adrien Broner!

By Edward Chaykovsky

WBO lightweight champion Ricky Burns says he was never ducking a mandatory fight with Adrien Broner in 2011. As the mandatory fight was ordered and negotiations were starting to play out, Burns vacated his belt and made a move to the lightweight division.

Broner has now made his own move to 135-pounds and faces WBC champion Antonio DeMarco on November 17th. Burns will return on December 15th but then he wants his promoter Frank Warren to get him the DeMarco-Broner winner.

"After the Nicky Cook fight that was the last straw for me. Everyone who knows me, they knew I was tight at the weight. Four weeks before the fight that was all that I was worried about, trying to get the weight down. Obviously I have to come through the 15th of December first, but that's a fight that I would obviously love [against Broner]. Adrien Broner has a tough fight on his hands with DeMarco as well. As long as I get through this, Frank said that we will try to get a fight with the winner," Burns said to ILondon.

Burns vs. Broner would have been a good fight last year. It will be a GREAT fight this year if Broner gets past DeMarco.

This fight just isn't going to happen before an all-Scottish world-title fight with Burns and Harrison. Warren isn't going to turn down that opportunity to make money. even though that's a bit of a crap fight at this stage.

Burns vs Broner up in Scotland would be an electric atmosphere. Although i think Burns would have to go over to America for that fight. But would Warren want to make this fight..you know what hes like.
