Team Vazquez: We'll Embarrass Burns, Toy With Broner

By Rick Reeno

Sean Gibbons of Zanfer Promotions, who handle the career of IBF lightweight beltholder Miguel Vazquez (33-3, 13KOs), reached out to BoxingScene.com in order to respond to an earlier article - where WBO champion Ricky Burns (35-2, 10 KOs) discussed his desire to pursue WBC champ Adrien Broner in a "three belt unifcation" showdown.

Vazquez and Burns will collide in a high stakes unification on March 16th at Wembley Arena in London.

"I'm a little surprised that Ricky Burns is even talking about a three belt unification with Broner. I'm so confident that Vazquez will embarrass Ricky Burns on March 16th, that I've already instructed my partner Woody to work out an exit strategy so we make it out of Wembley Arena in one piece. As soon as Miguel puts Burns away, we're doing a marathon run to a cab, waiting for us outside of the venue, and we're heading right to the airport with both belts. They won't get me like they did in Argentina," Gibbons told BoxingScene.com.

Editor's note: Last February in Argentina, Gibbons and junior flyweight Johnreil Casimero were jumped by a rioting mob of fans after Casimero knocked out hometown hero Luis Lazarate in the tenth round.

After Burns, Gibbons plans to target a three belt unification with Broner, who faces Gavin Rees in an HBO televised main event on February 16th at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City.

"We're not even worried about Broner beating Rees. Mercito Gesta, who Miguel just dominated, would put Rees away inside of four rounds. We wanted to fight Broner, but his team wanted no part of Miguel Vazquez, the number one lightweight in the world. Broner knows Vazquez would toy with him. We were negotiating to make that fight with [Vice President] Eric Gomez of Golden Boy. They came to us with one number, and then they came to us again with a number that was significantly less. That showed me Broner wanted no part of Miguel. First they tried to get Gary Sykes, who couldn't even win the Prizefighter tournament.  After that failed, they get Gavin Rees who can barely beat domestic opponents in his own country. Broner refused to fight Ricky Burns in the UK. Miguel Vazquez is a real Mexican fighter. Vazquez will fight anyone.....anywhere. After we show Broner how it's done with Burns, we're coming for his green belt," Gibbons said.

It don't matter who wins Broner would beat the breaks off both of them

[QUOTE=cornholioda3rd;12918467]Vazquez, I think, is Broner's step up into elite. If he can figure out his style (which is surely the most difficult in boxing along with Carlos Molina), I think sky's the limit for Adrien. He has amazing attributes, I…

Vasquez would have a hard time beating a fighter like broner. Not saying he can't but a pressure fighter with faster hand speed and a bigger punch is exactly the type of fighter that ud expect to beat him
