Adrien Broner is expected to end a two-year absence from the ring as he looks for his first win in four years.
Adrien Broner had a rather harsh message for his critics, a week before he returned to the ring against Jovanie Santiago, telling them to “eat a hat — and put on gravy”.
Broner has held many world championships in four different weight classes, but has not won a professional bout since he decided to split 10-rounds from Adrian Granados on February, 18, 2017.
His latest fight against the legendary Manny Pacquiao, who got a comfortable unanimous decision over “The Problem” came back on January 19, 2019.
Since then, most of the Broner fight has taken place in a courtroom.
He was held in contempt of court and returned to prison by Cleveland judge Nancy Russo on Monday, after failing to meet multiple dates to prove he could not pay $ 800,000 As part of a civil lawsuit filed by a woman he assaulted in 2018.
Now the 31-year-old is hoping to revive his in-ring career and, more importantly, resume those important pay days.
But in an interview with TMZ, Broner made it clear that the brisk and smoky ways that helped him become a star in the first place weren’t going anywhere.
“Eat an ad— and put gravy on it,” Broner told TMZ Sports, when asked what he thought of those who felt it would be a shell of his previous opponents. Santiago, a little-known Puerto Rican fighter on Feb. 20.
“It simply came to our notice then [champion] – a five – time world champion soon – so it starts on February 20, “Broner continued.
“I’ve come of age, I’ve been through a lot and I know, it’s time to get into business and make my money and do the best things and that box.”
