Adrien Broner is Hoping To Fight Four Times in 2012
WBO super featherweight champion Adrien Broner (22-0, 18KOs) is hoping to have a very active 2012. The unbeaten champion returns on February 25th and defends his belt against fellow unbeaten Eloy Perez (23-0-2, 7 KOs), in St. Louis. The fight will be televised on HBO as a co-feature to a welterweight clash between Devon Alexander and Marcos Maidana. Broner wants to fight at least four times in the new year.
Andrew Williams, a co-promoter of Broner along with Golden Boy Promotions, told Cincinnati News that his Broner’s next fight after St. Louis will be back in Cincinnati in May.
“We’re looking to fight four times in ’12 – two on the road, two here,” Williams said. “HBO was very impressed with how we did here. It’s good that he’s staying active – he’s the kind of kid who needs to be in the ring. He loves to box. He’s a gym rat.”
