A new player in the promotion business – BLK Prime Boxing – this week marked the second high-profile signing. Following the WBO welterweight champion “pound” American Terence Crawford, his compatriot, the conqueror of four weight divisions, Adrien Browner (34-4-1, 24 KOs), was signed. Yesterday it was officially announced.
It is not yet known when, where and against whom Broner will enter the ring. But under the terms of the deal, the American will earn an 8-figure fee for 3 fights. The deal is for 12 months. It is only known that Broner will not perform in December as the opening act for the fight between Crawford and Armenian-born David Avanesyan.
The last time Broner went into the ring in February last year – he got drunk, controversially defeated Puerto Rican Giovani Santiago. In August, the ex-champion was supposed to fight compatriot Omar Figueroa, but on the eve of the fight he refused to enter the ring due to mental problems.
“I have had many ups and downs in sports,”
He speaks Broner. But I’ve always been lucky to get another chance. And I want to thank Desmond the boss BLK Primefor this chance. I call him Uncle Des. Thank you for believing in me. Together with my brand About Billions we plan to climb in this case to the heights that we have never been before.”
At the beginning of the month, Broner challenged the UFC star and then declared: I am vicious and self-destructive.
