By Scott Gilfoid: Whether WBO lightweight champion Ricky Burns (35-2, 10 KO’s) faces WBC lightweight champion Adrien Broner (25-0, 21 KO’s) in a mouthwatering unification bout in the near future is up to Burns’s management, he says.
Burns told Steve Bunce “I just leave it up to my management and promoter. They always give me the fights at the right time.”
So Burns is just leaving up to his management and promoter whether he fights Broner? I can’t stand when fighters give that as the excuse when asked why don’t they fight so and so. I mean, does Burns want to fight Broner or not? The old ‘I’m leaving it up to my promoter bit’ makes me think that Burns isn’t all that interested in facing Broner.
