Adrien Broner: I'm Gonna F*** Omar Figueroa Up, Stop Him!

By Radio Rahim

On April 21 from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, four division world champion Adrien Broner (33-3, 24 KOs) will make his return to the ring for the first time since suffering a decision loss, at the same venue, last July at the hands of Mikey Garcia.

Broner will headline the upcoming card in a showdown with undefeated former world champion Omar Figueroa (27-0-1, 19 KOs) in a Showtime televised fight.

The co-main event that night feature 23-year-old former world champion Gervonta Davis (19-0, 18 KOs), who comes back for the first time since a TKO win from last August on the Mayweather-McGregor pay-per-view.

Last July, Figueroa shockingly went all the way up to the welterweight limit of 147-pounds and demolished former champion Robert Guerrero in three brutal rounds.

Figueroa dropped Guerrero a total of five times, with three knockdowns in the second round and two more in the third before the contest was waved off. Guerrero announced his retirement two days later.

Broner is looking to make a big statement, by not only handing Figueroa his first career defeat - but he wants to become the first man to stop the Mexican boxer.

And then he wants to avenge his decision losses to Garcia and Shawn Porter.

"He just stopped Robert Guerrero. It's a big fight. He's undefeated, he's a former world champion - but I'mgonna f*** him up though," Broner told BoxingScene.com.

"I want to stop Omar Figueroa and give him his first loss. Then I want to fight Shawn and Mikey this year."

Garcia and Porter secured clear victories over Broner - but the controversial fighter is promising to make some very telling changes that would boost his performances if the rematches ever came about.

"I be focused during my fights, but its just about making changes that benefit my career. You can't look for different things by doing the same shit. So I just had to make some changes and on April 21st ya'll will see that Adrien Broner that you've been looking for," Broner said.

[QUOTE=Graz;18461982]Perfect illustration of Broner after Maidana taught him a lesson. Truth is this guy could have been one of the greats if he had any degree of class and a work output in the ring. Nothing worse than wasted potential.…
