Former four division world champion Adrien broner will end a long absence from the ring on Saturday night when he faces Jovanie santiago in a junior welterweight bout at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, Connecticut.
🤼 Adrien Broner vs Jovanie Santiago, one more fight
Have passed two years since Broner’s last fight (33-4-1, 24 KOs) and four years since his last win. He has had legal and financial problems, but he insists he is a changed man and still has what it takes to win another world title. That journey begins again with Jovanie Santiago (14-0-1, 10 KOs), an undefeated but uncomplicated fighter from Puerto Rico.
Broner’s reputation and notoriety is enough to see him headlining Saturday night’s Showtime billboard. The evening’s entertainment also features a heavyweight clash between Otto Wallin and Dominic Breazeale (20-2, 18 KOs) and a junior welterweight fight between Robert Easter Jr. and Ryan Martin.
This is how Broner arrives
The Last time we saw Broner fight, in January 2019, he was busy being outclassed in almost every way against Manny Pacquiao, 40 years old. Broner lost by a wide margin on the cards and subsequently announced his second retirement from boxing.
The loss to Pacquiao came on the heels of a draw against Jessie Vargas and a loss to Mikey Garcia. Even Broner’s most recent victory was shaky, a split decision win over Adrian Granados in February 2017. The defense and counterattacks that made Broner a highly touted star were no longer working, and Broner had nothing to show for at his best. moment. years as an athlete.
Broner’s problems outside the ring have persisted into his time away from the sport. He was jailed for contempt of court in November and, as ESPN.com’s Ben Baby wrote, Broner may be feeling financial pressure related to the case:
“Broner owes $ 855,682.03, which is the amount he must pay to settle the lawsuit, according to an affidavit filed Jan. 29. That follows a criminal case in which he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor offense of assault and unlawful restraint after forcibly kissing a person. woman at a club in 2018. In a court docket filed Jan. 29, Wells Fargo said Broner had no funds available, with a large stamp on blank lines. “
Broner told ESPN that this is not the main motivation for returning. Instead, he says he has “great talent, and I’m not going to let it go to waste,” according to Baby. He is still 31 years old and has dropped a ton of weight to reach the 140-pound limit for Saturday’s fight. Many fighters have had great careers in the early 1930s, although most were building on much better foundations than Broner has achieved. However, the way Broner tells it, he’s ready to start over.
“I have found my love for boxing again. I gave myself some time to miss the box and I’m ready to go in and win more world titles. My children are what feed me now, ”he said, according to Bad. Scott Christ of Left Hook.
If he’s healthy and focused, “El Problema” should have no problem against Santiago who comes in with two won fights at 140 pounds, against Ashley Theophane and Khabib Allakhverdiev, before the decline of the last few years. The junior welterweight ranges also offer a much easier path to contention than the star-studded welterweight division, as long as Broner can stay disciplined and maintain his weight.
