Schaefer on Broner's options: Khan, Alexander, Ortiz, and Guerrero named

Scott Heavey

Four notable welterweight names have been cited by Golden Boy's Richard Schaefer as potential opponents for Adrien Broner, who may instead go back down in weight.

Amir Khan, Devon Alexander, Victor Ortiz, and Robert Guerrero were named by Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer as potential next opponents for Adrien Broner, who won the WBA 147-pound belt last night from Paulie Malignaggi.

There is some debate about whether or not Broner will even stay at 147, since he has options to move back to 135 or go down to 140, which Schaefer also acknowledges:

"We first have to see if he wants to stay at 147 or not. The question for Adrien will be - does he want to defend his title, does he want to go 140, he is still the lightweight champion as well, he did not give up that belt yet. I do not see him going back to lightweight. We have to see what he wants to do. For example, a fight between Adrien and Marcos Maidana, I would love to see that as a fan. The division is so deep, there are so many names there....Amir Khan, Devon Alexander, Victor Ortiz, Robert Guerrero. The names go on and on and there will be some big fights for Adrien," Schaefer said.

All four of those names are intriguing potential options for Broner, and he did have some beef with Guerrero last year. Guerrero also recently made a challenge to Victor Ortiz, who responded by calling him "broham." Alexander and Khan are reportedly near a deal for a December fight.

It would seem at the moment that Broner is likely to drop back down in weight, even if just to 140 and not 135. But there are options all over.
