Jose Ramirez responds to Adrien Broner!
Although he is a great boxing talent, Adrien “The Problem” Broner has kept himself much more relevant due to his social media presence than his victories in the ring. Such was the case when the controversial fighter denigrated super lightweight champions Regis Prograis and Jose Ramirez.
Whilst sitting at a bar guzzling liquor, The Problem aired his less than favorable opinion of the two men via social media.
Angered with the attack, WBA world super lightweight champion Prograis was quick to respond via his own social media accounts. The New Orleans native let it be known he wanted to settle the disrespectful matter in the ring…ASAP.
Ramirez, the other insulted fighter, also responded. However, he was far more tranquil and even respectful in his retort. This does not mean that “anything was sweet” with Ramirez because it was not!
The WBC and WBO super lightweight champion simply recognizes his own list of things to do. He also sees the benefit of having Broner join the super lightweight division.
“He’s not doing too well at 147 so maybe 140 he’ll be a better fighter, you know? […] I hope he does make that move to 140 because we could use names like Adrien Broner to be honest, you know? We could use those types of names to be in the mix, it’s good for us too.”
Ramirez was quite candid on how he thinks Broner could supply beneficial notoriety to the overall division. However, he is in no way saying he is inferior to the Problem. In fact, not only does Ramirez feel that he has the skills to beat Broner, he is confident that he has the tools to stop the Cincinnati wild card. If that happened, the skillful Californian would be the first to do so.
“I never like to say, but I think I’ll give him his first stoppage! I think so. […] I think my high volume of pace and punches and I think he’s very defensive, and you know, that works good for me because with 8 ounce gloves, I could break through that guard.
“I don’t know if he has that hunger he once had you know […] but I believe Adrien Broner. I believe he’s kind of satisfied with what he’s already made, you know? That’s to my advantage if I was to face a fighter like that.”
Love him or hate him, you have got to respect Broner’s ability to continuously talk himself into big fights. He has yet to endure a single bout back at super lightweight. Still, The Problem already has two potential fights with two of the three reigning champions waiting.
That’s impressive for a man who has not won a fight in nearly three years!
