Broner: I Want To Knock Amir Khan Out - It Won't Take Much!

Four division world champion Adrien Broner (33-3, 24 KOs) is putting together a target list for 2018 - which he promises will be his biggest year yet.

First up, the controversial boxer is scheduled to return to the ring on April 21, at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Broner will face undefeated former world champion Omar Figueroa (27-0-1, 19 KOs) in a WBC super lightweight final eliminator.

Figueroa is coming off a huge victory, when he demolished and retired former multi-division champion Robert Guerrero.

Broner will attempt to bounce back after suffering a twelve round decision loss to Mikey Garcia last July, also at Barclays.

He wants to avenge his two most recent defeats - which came at the hands of Garcia and welterweight contender Shawn Porter, who won a twelve round decision over Broner a few years ago.

Garcia coming back to action on March 10, in his second fight at junior welterweight, when he challenges IBF world champion Sergey Lipinets. Porter, who does not have a fight scheduled as of yet, is the WBC's mandatory challenger to current champion Keith Thurman.

And Broner wants to get his hands on Amri Khan (31-4, 19 KOs), who is also scheduled to return on April 21 - against Phil Lo Greco at the Echo Arena in Liverpool.

Broner took to social media to map out his plans for the new year.

"This year I will be crowned king again and it starts with Omar Figueroa on April 21st, but after that I want to get some get back at Porter and Garcia. These two guys, I can admit beat me fair and square, no excuses but I know I can defeat both of these guys so good luck to both of these guys and I hope y’all keep building y’all names so when I come kick y’all ass the second time around it will be that much bigger," Broner stated.

"And last but not least - Amir Khan. I just want to knock him out cause it don’t take much to do it plus it will sell out over in the UK, so if Eddie Hearn want to make the fight let’s f***ing do it..... Now I respect all these guys, but like I said 2018 is my year."

Comment by champion4ever on 02-02-2018

Broner needs to stay focus on one fight at time because he is going to have his hands full against Omar Figueroa. Broner mostly throws single punches at a time. Where as Omar throws them in bunches. Adrien will have…
