“4-division world champion @AdrienBroner faces undefeated 3-division champ @mikeygarcia at 140 lbs on July 29th. #BronerGarcia,”
This tweet came on Showtime’s boxing page less than an hour ago. Needless to say, it represents good news for fans, who have already been enjoying a stellar 2017. There had been word that this bout would indeed happen, now that it’s official, the fight world has another huge match on its hands in the coming months.
Garcia, who has been nothing but sensational since returning to the ring after some time away, will be facing Broner at junior welterweight. His opponent, Broner, is, of course, boxing’s bad boy. The Cincinnati native’s reputation has taken a well deserved hit in recent years, thanks to a pair of high profile loses and much out of the ring antics. Still, Broner has a large degree of talent, and, when focused, presents a challenge for most anyone.
