Ricky Burns Ready: I'll Give Adrien Broner Problems!

By Mel "Sabaka" Ohlhoft

WBO super featherweight champion Ricky Burns is ready for the challenge of undefeated Adrien Broner, the mandatory challenger. Burns will travel to Broner's backyard of Cincinnati on the 26th of November

Broner is known as "The Problem" but Burns expects to give the rising fighter some problems of his own. Burns watched Broner's fight with Daniel Ponce De Leon and felt the Mexican boxer may have done enough to pull out a win. He saw some flaws in Broner's style and plans to further exploit them before an American television audience on HBO. 

"Broner is a good counter puncher with an impressive knockout ratio and he is always looking to throw his big left hook. When I watched him fight Daniel Ponce de Leon I got the impression that he is a Floyd Mayweather type of fighter," Burns told The Scotsman.

"However, he was rather lucky to get the verdict on points and, with my high-intensity boxing, I can definitely cause him some problems."

Ironically Burns, you have just about as much of a chance of beating Broner as Ortiz does beating Mayweather.. which is slim too none...
