Adrien Jerome Broner is a Cincinnati, Ohio-born professional boxer and rapper. Because of his remarkable talent, the quirky fighter ascended to the title of being a global celebrity at an early age. He is a former four-division world champion, having held the WBO super-featherweight, WBC lightweight, WBA welterweight, and WBA light-welterweight titles.
At the age of six, Broner’s father introduced him and his twin brother to boxing. However, as he grew older, he became involved in gang-related scandals.
Broner had a spectacular amateur career, amassing a record of 300-19. In 2002 and 2003, he won the Gold Medal at the National Silver Gloves Championships. He also won bronze at the 2005 National Junior Olympics.
Broner won the world title four times as a professional, in four different weight classes. In 2011, he won his first title in the super-featherweight division, defeating Vicente Martin Rodriguez to capture the WBO title. Broner won the WBC lightweight title in 2012 after defeating Antonio DeMarco.
He stepped up in weight once more to face Paulie Malignaggi for the WBA welterweight belt. After a heated buildup, Broner defeated the champion to claim his third title. In 2015, he defeated Khabib Allakhverdiev for the WBA super-lightweight title. Broner became a four-time world champion at the age of 26.
He stepped away from the game for two years. In 2021, he defeated Jovanie Santiago.
The former champion has a respectable 34-4-1 record as of 2021. However, despite being compared to Floyd Mayweather and frequently dubbed “the next untouchable fighter,” many argue that his record does not reflect his talent. His 34 wins includes 24 knockouts.
He was unbeaten in his first 27 professional boxing contests. However, he was defeated for the first time by Marcos Maidana.
Celebrity Net Worth reported that Broner has a net worth of $6 million as of 2021. His boxing profession is his principal source of income. In addition to that, the former champion’s rapping profession is also a source of income.
His last two Pay-Per-View fights netted him a whopping $3.5 million. Manny Pacquiao’s fight will cost $2.5 million, while Jessie Vargas’ fight will cost $1 million. He also received $1.5 million for his contentious battle with Paulie Malignaggi.
The renowned fighter has a slew of endorsements and sponsorships. One of his most recent collaborations was with FashionNova. Avianne and Co., a well-known jewellery manufacturer which sponsored Broner’s bout against John Molina.
