Burns’ trainer: Ricky can beat Adrien Broner at 135lbs or 140

Tommy Barber – London

Billy Nelson, the long-time trainer of Scotland’s two-weight world champion pug Ricky Burns, has claimed that his charge can beat motor-mouthed publicity machine Adrien Broner at lightweight, or even super lightweight. The two have been in talks to box before, at the super featherweight division limit, but Burns headed north, to the 135 pound pool.

Both men have since made great splashes with Burns’ hat-trick of lightweight triumphs over Michael Katsidis, Kevin Mitchell and Paulus Moses, and Broner’s teekayo torturing of tough Mexican hombre Antonio DeMarco and gritty Welshman Gavin Rees. Burns is in action this weekend, defending his WBO strap against Jose Gonzalez at Glasgow’s Emirates Arena. Meanwhile, a June 22 clash at New York City’s Barclays Center with welterweight titlist and fellow smack talker Paulie Malignaggi awaits Broner.

    Well… I don’t/won’t deny that Burns has a fighter’s heart and talent to go with But… I wouldn’t go as far as believing that he’d defeat Broner. Yes, Broner would be in for one of his toughest fights, no doubt but I beleive that Ricky will fall clearly short at the end.
