Broner: Burns couldn’t beat my on my worst day!

Phil Jay 27/09/2011

WBO super-featherweight title challenger Adrien Broner is on the cusp of becoming world champion after an amazing start to his professional boxing career and is just awaiting an opponent for his November date in Cincinnati, Ohio.

The 22 year-old has racked up an impressive 21 victories in just over three years, with 17 knockouts, ten of which have come in the first round and the American believes that former champion Ricky Burns was right to vacate the title rather than risk it against him on home soil.

“I’m not unhappy [at Burns’ moving up],” Broner told World Boxing News.

“I feel like every man know what’s best for their career, so at the end of the day I’m happy for him because to be honest, he and I know he couldn’t beat me on my worst day.”

Another undefeated prospect Eloy Perez, 24, had initially been linked to opposing ‘The Problem’ in November but was apparently ruled out by promoter’s Golden Boy in the past week and as the WBO seek a worthy contender, Broner isn’t worried who he faces at the U.S Bank Arena.

“I don’t know who I’m facing in November. I just know I will be ready for whoever and after I win the title, I might stay around or I might go up and give the lightweights hell!” he stated.
