Adrien Broner has insisted that he would love to fight Amir Khan and has even suggested that he would be open to travelling to London to face him.
Deluded Khan has two summer options: Time for domestic showdown with Brook.
Khan has four-man Wembley wishlist: Questionable as to whether any will happen.
Thurman blasts over-rated Khan: Thurman not impressed with Brit’s fights at welterweight.
Broner is fresh from his win over John Molina at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Saturday night, the first night of the new ‘Premier Boxing Champions’ series on NBC.
However, the American is looking for his next opponent and that search may take him across the Atlantic if it is possible to secure a bout with Khan.
“I can’t wait. I’d even fight him at Wembley,” Broner said, according to Boxing News 24.
Given that Khan would struggle to fill Wembley regardless of the opponent, facing Broner would do little to help him sell the 80,000 seater out.
Wembley Arena has a capacity of 12,500 and would undoubtedly be a more realistic possibility, but that kind of gate would arguably make it pointless holding the fight in the UK from a financial perspective for the two fighters.
Broner received a negative response from the crowd after his win over Molina, and he has promised that he will never fight for the crowd again after his loss to Marcos Maidana.
As a result, he is possibly looking to purposely fight abroad but with Khan mentioning the likes of Miguel Cotto, Timothy Bradley and the winner of Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao as his ideal opponent for a Wembley bout in June, it doesn’t appear as though ‘The Problem’ is on his radar at this time.
Broner certainly commands attention after a decent show last weekend, but despite his efforts of drumming up interest in the Khan fight, it isn’t likely to do much good.
