Middleweight beltholder Peter Quillin could soon defend his WBO title against promotional stablemate Danny Jacobs.
Broner trashes Maidana, Matthysse
Unbeaten Adrien Broner boasted on Twitter that he can take down Argentine countrymen Marcos Maidana and Lucas Matthysse, one after the other.
THE RING's No. 1-rated junior welterweight, Lucas Matthysse, has said he is hopeful that fellow Argentine Marcos Maidana gets a shot to take the "head off" of unbeaten WBA 147-pound beltholder Adrien Broner, who, in turn, said he'd like to take down Maidana and Matthysse in succession.
Maidana (33-3, 30 knockouts) and Broner (27-0, 22 KOs) could meet if Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer can make the fight happen, while Matthysse (34-2, 32 KOs) and RING champion Danny Garcia (26-0, 16 KOs) are slated to fight on Sept. 14 for Garcia's WBA and WBC junior welterweight belts.
"Your a dam fool if you think @ChinoMaidana can beat me lol," wrote Broner on his Twitter account. "And when I'm done when this b--ch @ChinoMaidana, I'm go f--k Matthysse up."
Following his decision win over Paulie Malignaggi in June, Broner announced in his post-fight interview that, in response to criticism that he has fought hand-picked opponents, he'd let the fans decide who he fights next. Subsequently, RingTV.com posted a poll in which readers selected Matthysse, with Maidana as the runner-up.
