By Allan Fox: Adrien ‘The Problem’ Broner will be headlining against little known second-tier light welterweight Pedro Campa in a 10-round scheduled fight in February on Showtime.

Mike Coppinger is reporting the news of Campa being the opponent for Adrien. Ivan Redkach had been posting on social media about him potentially getting the fight against Broner, but he’s going in a different direction.

Redkach, 34, might be a little too tough for Broner, given his two-year layoff. Broner would need to be sharp for him to beat Redkach, and he’s looked anything but that in his recent workout videos.

Adrien’s trainer has been looking better than him and showing superior hand speed.

On social media, Broner bragged that he’s going to be picking up “more millions. Just how many millions Showtime will be paying the 31-year-old Broner for this comeback fight is unknown.

Broner recently made it clear that he wanted $10 million for him to come out of his two-year retirement, but that’s a figure he likely isn’t getting for his match against Campa (31-1, 21 KOs).

It’s not a high profile fight, and Campa isn’t a contender. He’s just a guy with an inflated resume filled with wins over little known opposition.

The former four-division world champion Broner (33-4-1, 24 KOs) will be coming off a 25-month layoff when he faces the 28-year-old Campa on a yet to be determined date and location.

Campa fights at 140, so there’s a possibility that Broner will be meeting him in that weight division.

It would be a good idea for Broner to stay at 140 because he’s shown repeatedly over the years that he doesn’t have the power, work rate, or speed to be a major player at 147.

“Sources: Adrien Broner is set to fight Mexico’s Pedro Campa in February on Showtime, his first bout since the Manny Pacquiao loss in January 2019,” said @MikeCoppinger.

Broner last fight against Pacquiao in 2019 was an embarrassingly bad one, as he was outworked the entire fight and completely over-matched. In hindsight, Pacquiao shouldn’t have picked Broner as his opponent, but it was an easy payday for him.

Adrien says he’s picking up millions

“We got more millions to pick up in a couple of weeks y’all,” said Broner on social media about his comeback fight. “I’ll see y’all in February when I fight a dead man.

“This is the only time I get to talk because right now I ain’t talking to nobody. I’m losing weight. I told y’all I’ll be rich, and I did it.

“When I’m training and losing weight, you can probably see it in my face, I get rea, real cranky and s***. You never knew that I would turn out to be as good as I’d be. No one did,” said Broner in gloating about having done well during his career.

Wins have been hard to come by for Broner in the last four years, as he hasn’t won a fight since his questionable victory over Adrian Granados in 2017.
