Broner vs. Abril in Talks For February 16th on HBO

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Carlos Rodríguez, president of Dream Team Boxing, has confirmed that he's negotiating with Golden Boy Promotions for Richard Abril (17-3-1, 8KOs) to face WBC lightweight champion Adrien Broner (25-0, 21KOs) on February 16th on HBO.

"We are negotiating with Broner, and I can say that there's an 80% chance that this fight will take place. The people from Golden Boy seem to be interested in this bout, which will be a great step forward for my fighter," Rodriguez said.

Golden Boy would like Broner to face WBO champion Ricky Burns, but Burns suffered a setback on Wednesday when his scheduled defense for this coming Saturday was postponed until January 26th.

Abril has been inactive since April's controversial split decision loss to Brandon Rios. He was then scheduled to fight Sharife Bogere for the vacant WBA crown. That fight was canceled when Bogere suffered an injury in training.

Broner captured the WBC title last month with a TKO win over Antonio DeMarco.

[QUOTE=PBP;12808165]Richard Schaefer said something about Vasquez turning down $350k for that fight in a recent article. But this is the same guy that justified Canelo vs Josesito so anything he says should be taken with a grain of salt I…
