Adrien Broner's Team Looking Toward Next Fight

21-year-old super featherweight prospect and contender Adrien Broner's team is considering a couple of names for his next fight, and according to Mike Coppinger, those opponents are Rocky Juarez and Rafael Marquez.

Broner (21-0, 17 KO) has made a couple of very different impressions this year in fights on HBO. In March, he was lucky to get a decision over Daniel Ponce de Leon, but in June he sparked Jason Litzau in just 2:58.

Neither of the rumored fights are likely to excite anyone. Marquez (39-6, 35 KO) is planning a move back to super bantamweight, looking for a title shot against Toshiaki Nishioka that could come this fall. And Juarez (28-8-1, 20 KO) has lost his last four, which should have been his last five (he got a hometown draw with Chris John in their first fight), and hasn't won a fight since 2008. Overall, he's just 3-7-1 in his last 11 fights and has become nothing more than a gatekeeper. Broner is ready for more than that, though of course if there's nothing notably better, than Juarez could be a somewhat useful stay-busy fight for the young fighter.
