Via Chris Williams: Adrien ‘The Problem’ Broner looks sharp, training for this summer’s comeback battle on Showtime. Former four Broner World Champion (34-4-1, 24 KOs).
In the training video of Broner, 32, he beats the light of day by one of his companions, showing the form that hasn’t been on him since 2012 when he was a powerhouse. strength of nature at 130 and 135.
Broner needed a second chance to turn his career around, train hard, stay active, and become the boxer many believed would carry the sport on his back ten years ago.
Everyone needs a second chance, and Broner deserves to be the one who can correct all the mistakes he made a decade ago when he didn’t devote himself to the sport the way he did. he needed to replace Floyd as the number 1 guy in boxing.
Broner hasn’t fought in 14 months since beating the always tough Jovanie Santiago by unanimous decision of 12 innings in February 2021 on Showtime.
It’s understandable why Broner didn’t play well against Santiago as he was about to be sacked 25 months after his loss to Manny Pacquiao in January 2019. With that type of dismissal, it’s no surprise he didn’t. The whole world burned before the match. Santiago last year.
There’s no word yet on whether Broner will fight his comeback fight in July, but it is believed he will drop to 140 to give himself the best chance of regaining his glory.
If Broner fights at 140, these will be great picks for him:
- Jack Catterall
- Jose Zepeda
- Liam Paro
- Regis Prograis
- Gary Antuane Russel
- Mikey Garcia
- Sandor Martin
- Subriel Matias
- Arnold Barboza
- Jose Ramirez
- Teofimo Lopez
- Shakram Giyasov
Practice every day like it’s my last. [You] never know how this S*** boxing will play out. I’m so lucky to have Al Hayman and Showtime Boxing. See you in July #TheProblem🆎” Adrien Broner mentioned above Instagram.
Staying active is key
Broner can’t afford to take on an inferior opponent in July, especially if it will be the only game of the year for him. Fighting once a year puts Broner in the predicament of having to win again at a world title or an important battle.
Broner has missed too much time over the past four years for him to continue to fight year after year as Gary Russell Jr. Indeed, since 2018, Broner has only fought THREE times, and that’s a pitiful number for a world-class boxer.
Broner’s time to rest is when he retires, not while he’s still active with his career. Broner’s career has faltered significantly since his 2013 loss to Marcos Maidana.
You have to wonder how things will turn out if he defeats Maidana. Will AB fight more often if he defeats Maidana? Chris Williams likes to think things will be different for Broner.
