The ‘Problem’ Adrien Broner will finally enter the squared circle on February 20. This will mark the Ohio native’s first fight since a dreadful loss to Manny Pacquiao in 2019. However, Broner moved on from that defeat and inked a deal for his return last year. But, who is he actually signed to?
In 2018, Broner announced a cosmic 5-fight deal with Mayweather Promotions, worth $50 million. Although Broner had an on and off relationship with Floyd Mayweather, the duo came to terms with this eye-catchy contract. This deal not just solidified Broner’s career ahead, but also his relationship with ‘Money’ Mayweather.
Back when the deal got official, the ‘Problem’ even took it to his official Instagram handle to express his contentment.
“@floydmayweather I’m glad we was able to sit down and work out our differences… I was glad to sign the 5 fight promotional contract for 50 million,” he wrote.
Broner cited Floyd Mayweather as his ‘big brother’ and has had immense respect for him.
Now, as the ‘Problem’ is on the comeback trail, Mayweather Promotions will look to secure fights against huge names to help him make a killing.
Can Adrien Broner put on his career-best performance on Saturday night?
It was in 2017 when Broner won his last pro-boxing bout. Ever since then, he’s been hungry to secure a win and rise to world champion status. He abruptly stayed out of the sport for a couple of years, but in his preparations for this bout, the 31-year-old has left no stones unturned.
More than anyone else, the ‘Problem’ himself is keen on making a statement. Broner will look to employ his experience and ring IQ to grab a win over the undefeated Santiago. A win at this stage will only motivate him to go beyond what everyone expects from him. Furthermore, it will see him regain his self-belief as a boxer.
A quick finish or a 12-round rally? How do you envisage Broner’s Saturday night bout going?
