Broner fighting Redkach on Feb.18th in Atlanta, then possibly Prograis
By Allan Fox: Adrien ‘The Problem’ Broner says his next fight will be against Ivan Redkach (23-6-1, 18 KOs) on February 18th in the 71,000-seat Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia on BLK Prime followed by a title shot against WBC light welterweight champion Regis Prograis next year.
Broner, 33, doesn’t say who will be his third opponent for his three-fight contract with BLK Prime, but did rule out fighting Rolando ‘Rolly’ Romero. That’s not someone that Broner is interested in fighting.
The former four-division world champion Broner (34-4-1, 24 KOs) is said to be getting paid in the neighborhood of $12 million for his three-fight contract with BLK Prime, and he plans on making that money count right away with his pay-per-view fight with the 36-year-old Redkach. Then after that, a title shot against Prograis (28-1, 24 KOs) for his WBC 140-lb belt.
“The deal that BLK gave me, I wouldn’t have gotten nowhere,” said Adrien Broner to The Last Stand, about the 10 to 12 million dollars, three-fight, twelve-month contract.
“February 18th in Atlanta, Ivan Redkach,” said Broner when asked who he’s fighting next. “Yeah, he was talking crazy.
“As boxers always do, I went where the money is at. After I signed this deal, I haven’t heard from certain people. We might have ran our course,” said Broner when asked about his previous relationship with PBC.
“I don’t pay that guy no attention,” said Broner when asked if he’d be interested in fighting Rolando ‘Rolly’ Romero.
“He’s got something I want. That’s very most likely for you guys to see in 2023,” said Broner when asked if he would like to fight WBC light welterweight champion Regis Prograis next year.
“So, I’m going to go out here and handle my business on February 18th, and then I’m definitely going for that title. Yes, sir,” said Broner about 140 being the weight that he’ll be fighting at.
“On February 18th, I will be that same AB, the ‘Can Man’ that y’all fell in love with, and I’m going to put on a great show for you guys.
“I think a lot more big fighters are going to come to BLK Prime because, one, they got the budget to pay these fighters. I think this is the new wave. I think BLK is going to take the world and run with it.
“If I told the world or another businessman the type of deal that I signed and the type of deal that was drawn up for me, they probably wouldn’t believe it.
“Just know that I’m back, I got the spark back, and I’m ready to fulfill this contract,’ said Broner.
