Adrien 'The Problem' Broner

Adrien broner is a four-time world champion across four weights, all before he had turned 26.

Adrien Broner Celebrates

A highly defensive, orthodox figher with speed and power, Broner has been compared to Floyd Mayweather Jr, who he considers his "big brother."

Broner turned pro at 2008 at just 18-years-old and won his first three fights that year by first round knockout. He kept busy, with six fights in 2008, eight fights in 2009 and five in 2010.

First World Title

In 2011 Adrien Broner was at 21-0 when he fought Vicente Martin Rodriguez for the vacant WBO World Super-Featherweight Championship at the US Bank Center in his home town of Cincinnati, Ohio.

Broner won by a dramatic round three knockout and secured his position among boxing's top fighters. He went on to defend the title against Eloy Perez.

Broner at Lightweight

In 2012 'The Problem' fought for the WBC World Lightweight Championship against banger Antonio DeMarco, this time in New Jersey.

Adrien Broner v Gavin Rees

Broner won the belt by a round eight TKO and defended his title against Gavin Rees in 2013 before moving up to welterweight that year, after failing to secure a fight with fellow lightweight champion Ricky Burns.

Malignaggi and Maidana battles

In 2013 broner won a controversial split decision against Paulie Malignaggi to secure the WBA World Welterweight Championship and become a three-weight world champion.

Later that year, Broner suffered his first defeat at the hands of Marcos Maidana in Texas, losing his zero and the WBA World Welterweight Championship to the Argentinian knockout-machine.

Adrien Broner V Carlos Molina

Since losing to Maidana, Broner showed a more patient style and won all three of the fights with defeated Carlos Molina, Emmanuel Taylor and John Molina Jr by points. Before Maidana, eight of Broner's previous ten wins came by way of stoppage

Those three wins on the spin set up a huge Ohio derby with Shawn Porter. Despite knocking Porter down in the last round, 'Showtime' managed to survive the late onslaught to win across all three judges' scorecards.

Four-time World Champ

'AB' bounced right back, picking up his fourth World Title by beating Khabib Allakhverdiev for the WBA Super-Lightweight crown with a late stoppage in front of his home fans in Cincinnati.

He made the first defence against England's Ashley Theophane, however the American lost his belt on the scales after failing to make weight.

Back on the title hunt

Now Broner is targeting another strap at 140lbs and kicks off his 2017 with a bout against Adrian Granados. The tough Mexican-American is known for upsets and comes into the bout full of confidence after a fine win over prospect Amir Iman in November 2015.

Headlining a show in his hometown once again, Broner will be eager to put on a show and put himself back amongst the World Title mix with Terence Crawford and Ricky Burns possible opponents.
