Via Knitting Ambrosio: Teofimo Lopez and his father, Teo Sr., sent a message of support for Adrien ‘The Problem’ Broner on social media today regarding his return.
Former four-category world champion Broner (34-4-1, 24 KOs) will soon return to the ring as part of a three-figure, twelve-month, eight-figure deal with BLK Prime after being knocked out. out of the ring for the past 21 months.
Broner, 33, says he has a “big announcement” which he plans to perform during the game between Terence Crawford and David Avanesyan on December 10 in Omaha, Nebraska. Adrien said that he will attend the battle and that he will make his announcement at that time.
Given that Broner’s next bout will be on BLK Prime’s pay-per-view, it’s assumed he’ll be up against a notable opponent from the 140 or 147 lb weight classes.
For Broner to bring in a lot of PPV buys, he’ll need to face someone like Keith Thurman, Terence Crawford, Jose Ramirez or Chris Colbert. Thurman (30-1, 22 KOs) would be the ideal opponent for Broner if ‘One Time’ doesn’t take on the next Errol Spence Jr, but it’s a fight that could be too costly for BLK Prime.
“AB, we can’t wait to see you do this now,” Teofimo Lopez said in a message of support on Twitter. social media. “Let’s take it AB. Adrien Broner #1.”
“Come back, champion,” Teofimo Sr told Broner.
“I went to see Terence Crawford’s game in Nebraska [on December 1oth]. I’ve got a big announcement to make. I don’t think you want to miss this one. You should be there, BLK Prime.
Given the huge amount of money Broner is getting for his three-fight deal with BLK Prime, they’ll likely go the cheap route with his next opponent rather than breaking the bank to find a famous boxer for him to confront.
Even an old relic like ‘One Time’ Thurman might be out of the price range for a fight with Broner.
During the peak of Broner’s career, he was considered the best at the 130th rank and gained a lot of fame and fortune thanks to his impressive kills and skill displayed in that tournament. .
The place where things fell apart for Broner was in 2012, when he decided to move into the welterweight division to take on the knockout artist. Marcos Maidana.
Maidana’s size and strength were too much for Broner, and AB eventually suffered a one-sided defeat to the Argentine. Unfortunately, Broner’s career never recovered from that loss.
