Adrien Broner’s expected return has been delayed for another month as the four-weight world champion continues to train.
The July schedule of “Problem” had an approximate date. However, there was no official announcement.
WBN revealed that a a ten-week camp was in touch when Broner wasn’t getting what he needed in a solid televised date. Broner has new hope as his August 20 return is in the works.
According to reports, Omar Figueroa, the original opponent, is still set on the opposite corner. Broner now needs the premier boxing champions to finalize the details so the promotion can begin.
Adrien Broner in training
Videos of Broner preparing for the fight continue to circulate on social media. Of course, they are accompanied by Bronner’s usual humor and love of the eccentric.
There’s no doubt that Adrien Broner, and Adrien Broner in form, makes a lot of headlines. His talent has been praised from all sides since the early days. But it’s a shame he couldn’t live up to his featherweight billing.
By his own admission, weight gain for money has never been achieved. So Figueroa will be the headliner at 140 pounds.
Broner has a chance to win the world super flyweight title given the current situation with Josh Taylor and the belts.
Taylor is reportedly considering relinquishing all four belts he’s held, with the WBA and WBC already on the way for other contenders.
One win over a ranked name would give Broner a big shot at the title. Incredibly, it has been six years since Broner became world champion.
The win over Ashley Theophan saw Broner win the vacant WBA regular spot the crown at DC Amory in Washington. Since then, however, the man from Cincinnati has won just two of his next six matches.
Facing and defeating Figueroa at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood would undoubtedly be a great first step for the polarizing fighter.
Jose Zepeda, Jose Ramirez, Alberto Puella and Batyr Akhmedov are in contention to be title holders in the future, and there’s no reason why Adrien Broner can’t be one of those names in the mix.
He has talent. The only thing that is questioned is the desire. Is it about money?
If so, these things never work.
