On Thursday, it was announced that four-time world champion Adrien Broner has signed with Hall of Fame promoter Don King.
After leaving Al Haymon and PBC, the 33-year-old Broner(34-4-1, 24 KOs) recently signed with BLK Prime and had a fight scheduled for February 25 in Atlanta.
However, after three opponents(Ivan Redkach, Hank Lundy, Michael Williams Jr.) had to back out of the fight for various reasons, Broner left BLK Prime, and now he’s with King.
“Adrien is ready and excited to show his championship skills once again for the delight of the great boxing fans,” said King.
Broner was once the youngest fighter at the age of 24 to win four world titles at 130, 135, 140 and 147 pounds, and according to him, he’s in great shape and ready to win titles.
“I have a fantastic camp with Kevin Cunningham, and I can hardly wait to get back into the ring again,” said Broner. “Winning a world title and constantly defending or unifying the titles is what I am aiming to do.”
King is ready to work with any promoter out there to get a fight for Broner.
“As his proud promoter drops the gauntlet to all the other promoters and challenges them to bring forth their best fighters to (meet) fight super star bad boy of boxing Adrien Broner. Bob Arum, Frank Warren, Al Haymon, Eddie Hearn, and any other promoter with a hot commodity champion, we welcome them all,” said King.
Broner has been out of the ring since he fought on February 20, 2021 when he defeated Jovanie Santiago unanimous decision at the Mohegan Sun in Connecticut.
