Adrien Broner is a three-division champion at the tender age of 24, although many have criticized the mouthy villain for being gifted some of his titles, and not facing enough competition to be considered one of the sport's elite.

In December he will face a strong test in Marcos "El Chino" Maidana, who represents the hardest punching opponent of his career. Danny Garcia, the current 140-lb. champion, is predicting Broner to cruise, however.

"It's going to be a good fight because Maidana, he comes to fight, but Broner's just got to use his skills and beat him," Garcia said. "He just can't be flat-footed and I think he'll win the fight pretty easy if he doesn't stand in front of him."

He also said that although he and Broner are friends, he's not averse to taking on the brash welterweight in the ring, although that matchup is unlikely to be coming soon.

"At the end of the day, it's a business so any fight can be made," Garcia said. "As far as us fighting any time soon, I don't think it makes any sense. We're both building, it would be under-watched."

Currently, Garcia doesn't appear to have many options on the table after his upset victory against Lucas "The Machine" Matthysse on September 14th when the pair squared off on the Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Canelo Alvarez undercard.

Another intriguing possibility is a move up in weight to face Mayweather. While that scenario seems unlikely, chatter has stalled about a potential Mayweather bout vs. Amir Khan. It was reported that Khan had pulled out of his December matchup with Devon Alexander to train for Floyd in May, but Team Khan denied those rumors in the aftermath.

Garcia would enter a fight with "Money" as a severe underdog, but he enters most of his high-profile bouts with doubters. After upsetting Matthysse, Garcia said "They said he knocks everybody down," said Garcia. "And I knew I would do it."
