Adrien Broner is Hoping To Fight Four Times in 2012

By Edward Chaykovsky

WBO super featherweight champion Adrien Broner (22-0, 18KOs) is hoping to have a very active 2012. The unbeaten champion returns on February 25th and defends his belt against fellow unbeaten Eloy Perez (23-0-2, 7 KOs), in St. Louis. The fight will be televised on HBO as a co-feature to a welterweight clash between Devon Alexander and Marcos Maidana. Broner wants to fight at least four times in the new year.

Andrew Williams, a co-promoter of Broner along with Golden Boy Promotions, told Cincinnati News that his Broner's next fight after St. Louis will be back in Cincinnati in May.

“We’re looking to fight four times in ’12 – two on the road, two here,” Williams said. “HBO was very impressed with how we did here. It’s good that he’s staying active – he’s the kind of kid who needs to be in the ring. He loves to box. He’s a gym rat.”

[QUOTE=jreckoning;11622111]JML and Cab have fought many more quality guys than Broner. And Broner struggled with PDL who both JML and Cab beat easily. [B]Broner has to have more fights before we start crowning him king. [/B] Yeah, he will lose…

[quote=richardt;11621794]For those who asked, Broner said ""Eloy Perez wants to be a star and flashy but he can't cause in the end, he is a Mexican"". And referenced him as a Burrito eating dude and other derrogatory comments. I look…
