Boxing News 2014: Adrien Broner Wants Next Fight With Danny Garcia, Marcos Maidana
Adrien Broner has a scheduled fight against Emmanuel Taylor on Sept. 6 in Cincinnati, but the former world champion already has possible opponents in mind after his next fight.
Broner, who holds a 28-1 record with 22 knockout victories, said in recent interviews that he wants to face Danny Garcia or have a rematch with Marcos Maidana.
In a Showtime interview, Broner said that he wants to win a fourth world title in as many divisions and Garcia's World Boxing Association (WBA) and World Boxing Council (WBC) light welterweight titles are his top targets.
But while a showdown against Garcia will be easy to arrange as both fighters are under influential adviser Al Haymon, Broner said that he will only take the fight for the right price.
"Everyone knows in boxing you take one fight at a time. I definitely want to win a world title at 140 so I can be a 4-time world champion in 4 different weight classes at 25. Boxing is a business. I've got love for a lot of fighters in the game, but boxing is a business. If it makes sense, I'm with the money," Broner said of facing Garcia via BoxingNews24.
Garcia, who is still undefeated in 29 professional fights with 17 knockouts, is coming off a dominating second-round knockout win against Rod Salka on Saturday in Brooklyn, New York.
Broner also added that he is still aching to get a rematch with Maidana after the Argentine's second fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. on Sept. 13 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Broner took a unanimous decision defeat against Maidana in December last year where he lost his WBA welterweight title and took the first defeat of his career.
In an interview with BoxingScene, the 25-year-old Cincinnati, Ohio native said that he expects Mayweather to win against Maidana, and he is hoping that the Argentine will then decide to face him in a rematch.
"It's a hell of a fight. Maidana is a tough opponent for anybody, of course I know that. The last one was a tough fight for my big brother but he got past it like he always do. I feel like this fight is going to be an easier fight for Mayweather, but after that, I'm going to put on a show September 6th and hopefully I get my rematch with Maidana," Broner said.
