Theophane: Mayweather Feels I'll Beat Broner, So Do I!

By Rick Reeno

To some, Adrien Broner made an unexpected challenge on Saturday night after capturing the WBA "regular" junior welterweight title with a stoppage win over over Khabib Allakhverdiev at the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Broner (30-2, 22 KOs) dominated the contest and stopped Allakhverdiev (19-2, 9 KOs) in the twelfth and final round when referee Harvey Dock had seen enough and waved off the fight. The victory earned Broner his fourth divisional title.

During his live post-fight interview on Showtime, Broner called out tough Brit Ashley Theophane (39-6-1, 11KOs).

Theophane is promoted by Floyd Mayweather Jr., who is close friends with Broner.

Some were caught by surprise with Broner's verbal challenge to Theophane. But BoxingScene.com ran a story last month, where Theophane revealed that he sat down with Mayweather - who promised him a title fight as long as Broner beat Khabib.

"Put Ashley on one of your private jets, bring him to come see me - and I bet I bring the girl out of that boy like Bruce Jenner," Broner said after the fight.

Theophane is ready for the fight. Following Broner's call of war, Theophane spoke to his promoter, and adviser Dejuan Blake - and advised both to make that fight happen.

"Whenever Adrien is ready to make this fight we can make it happen. My promoter Floyd Mayweather and advisor Dejuan Blake believe I can beat him and so do I. He's a great fighter. His record shows that. 26 years old and a four weight world champion but I believe in my ability and I 100% believe I would be victorious. I want to be your first defense Adrien. You called me out live after your win. Let's do this," Theophane stated to BoxingScene.com.
