Junior middleweight boxer Carson Jones turns 33 years of age on Monday. And for a birthday present, he would like none other than to face Adrien Broner, who stated earlier this week his intentions of winning a world title at 154 pounds.
Jones is active on Facebook and several boxing groups. And for the last several weeks, his timeline has been flooded with Broner retiring, unretiring, and supposedly wanting fights.
Fed up would be an understatement to describe Jones’ feelings towards Broner.
“Hell yeah (I’ll fight Broner),” Jones told FightNights.com. “This dude is one of the biggest idiots I’ve ever seen in my life. I fuc**** can’t stand him.”
Jones (41-15, 31 KO’s), of Oklahoma City, is a journeyman and has lost four of his last five fights, including a controversial technical decision to Antonio Margarito in September 2017. However, he gave former titlist Kell Brook all he could handle in their razor-close first bout in 2012.
Broner (33-4-1, 24 KO’s), 30, of Cincinnati, who is 3-3-1 in his last seven ring appearances, said he would like to fight middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez and former unified titlist Gennady Golovkin in 155-pound catch-weight bouts before retiring for a third time.
Broner is coming off a dreadful performance against them-secondary welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao, which saw Broner land a mere 50 punches in a unanimous decision rout.
