Warren to meet with Schaefer to discuss Broner vs. Burns fight
By Scott Gilfoid: British fight promoter Frank Warren will be meeting with Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer on Monday to talk about matching his fighter World Boxing Organization (WBO) super featherweight champion Ricky Burns (32-2, 9 KO’s) up with #1 ranked WBO contender Adrien Broner (21-0, 17 KO’s) for a fight for knows when.
Frankly, I’d be shocked out of my mind if this fight gets made because Broner would totally destroy Burns. Broner is much too talented for Burns and it would be a first class slaughter. Burns is doing fine being matched up against the obscure fodder opposition that’s being fed to him since he won the WBO belt a year ago in September.
I always knew that Burns would last as long as he was kept away from Broner, and I can’t imagine Burns’ promoter making this fight. I figured Burns would either vacate or get the title stripped from him before he took on a world class fighter like Broner. But then again the fight still hasn’t been made, so my expectations still could be met. Burns has had his 15 minutes of fame with his three title defenses over little known fighters. The last one was a real joke with his 1st round TKO win over Nicky Cook.
I almost died laughing at that one. Cook comes out and collapses holding his back after the first punch thrown by Burns. I’ve never seen such a farce in my life. It’s like buying a new car and having the engine fall out as you’re leaving the car lot.
