British contender Ashley Theophane is ready for WBA junior welterweight champion Adrien 'The Problem' Broner.
Theophane (39-6-1, 11KOs) had vowed last month to take the fight to Broner (31-2, 23KOs), after the four division champ promised to 'beat the sh*t' out of him and branded him as an 'easy money' fight.
Broner loves playing the role of a villain, which is why Theophane says he's been receiving a lot of support from fans, and people in the industry, who want to see him unseat 'The Problem' from his championship throne.
Theophane is finding motivation from Broner's belief that he's going to have a very easy defense. The fight is being targeted for a date in February or March says the British fighter. Theophane is promoted by Broner's close friend, Floyd Mayweather Jr., who is putting the event together with his promotional company.

After reviewing Broner's defeats, and some of his close calls, Theophane is going in there with the game plan of applying a lot of pressure with a heavy workrate to make Broner uncomfortable.
