"Now it's time to go get another belt in somebody else's weight class. I don't know if it's going to be light welterweight or I might go back down to lightweight or jr. lightweight; it really don't matter. We just having fun right now," stated newly crowned WBA welterweight champion Adrien Broner, who discussed his future plans during the post-fight press conference following his split decision victory over former champion Paulie Malignaggi at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Though Broner was making his welterweight debut, there's no guarantee that he'll stay at 147 pounds as the undefeated champion revealed he may still fight at 140 or even 135 pounds.
"Whatever's the better fight for me. That's what I'm doing. I don't care what weight it's at. If it's the best fight for me for my career, then that's where we'll be at, but I was definitely comfortable [at welterweight]," Broner explained. As for whose title he'd like to go after, Broner once again made it clear that he has no preference and is willing to let the fans help him decide his next move. "It really don't matter. My fans can pick the opponent," he continued, though you can scratch undefeated pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather off of his list of potential opponents. "Y'all know y'all better not go there," Broner added.
