Adrien Broner signs major deal with Don King

Adrien Broner signs major deal with Don King.

Now, Broner has linked up with King, the 91-year-old legend who rarely promotes these days. King doesn't have a TV deal and usually offers his fights on pay-per-view.

"This phenomenal team-up of superstar ... bad boy of boxing Adrien Broner and the world's greatest boxing promoter will give the people what they want," King said in a prepared statement. " ... Adrien is ready and excited to show his championship skills once again for the delight of the great boxing fans.

"His proud promoter drops the gauntlet to all the other promoters and challenges them to bring forth their best fighters to fight superstar bad boy of boxing, Adrien Broner. Bob Arum, Frank Warren, Al Haymon, Eddie Hearn, and any other promoter with a hot commodity champion, we welcome them all."

Broner (34-4-1, 24 KO) hasn’t fought since controversially edging out Jovanie Santiago in February 2021, which in turn was his only appearance since losing to Manny Pacquiao in January 2019. The eight-figure deal with BLK Prime was supposed to kick off on February 25th, but after Ivan Redkach pulled out due to a promotional dispute, Hank Lundy got medically suspended after suffering a cut, and Michael Williams Jr somehow contrived to break his jaw a week out, both parties elected to cut bait.

King spends more time sabotaging his own fighters than giving them opportunities nowadays. Not even genuine contenders are safe, as seen in his attempt to keep Ilunga Makabu from fighting Michal Cieslak for the WBC cruiserweight title and subsequently announcing a title defense against Noel Mikaelyan that just flat-out didn’t exist.
