By Scott Gilfoid: WBA World light welterweight champion Ricky Burns (41-5-1, 14 KOs) says he won’t be fighting former four division world champion Adrien Broner (32-2, 24 Kos) until mid-2017. Broner, 27, has a fight on February 11 against contender Adrian Granados (18-4-2, 12 KOs) at a still to be determined venue. That’s not going to be an easy fight for Broner, but he’s still expected to win.
A fight between Burns and Broner would be a nice payday for both of them. It would be a very tough fight for the 33-year-old Burns to win, because he’s not much of a puncher to speak. Broner would likely walk him down and chop him to pieces. Burns was fortunate to win his last fight against #1 WBA Kiryl Relikh last October in their fight at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow, Scotland.
