NABF super featherweight champion, Jason Litzau, of St. Paul, Minn., will face Adrien Broner, of Cincinnatti, likely in June at a site to be determined, BoxingScene.com was informed by Litzau's manager, John Wirt, and Broner's promoter, Golden Boy Promotions CEO, Richard Schaefer, on Thursday.
"Yes, we will do the fight," said Schaefer. "We're still working on the particulars. But yes, the fight will happen."
The 27-year-old Litzau (28-2, 12 KOs) has won five straight bouts, two of them by knockouts, and is coming off the two biggest victories of his career.
In April, Litzau decisioned Rocky Jaurez (28-8-1, 20 KOs). In November, Litzau earned a split-decision over former super bantamweight titlist Celestino Caballero (34-2, 23 KOs).
The 21-year-old Broner (20-0, 16 KOs) is coming off of a March, unanimous decision over southpaw Mexican former WBO super bantamweight titlist Daniel Ponce De Leon (41-3, 34 KOs) of Mexico accomplished before a hostile crowd.
Broner had scored 10 consecutive knockouts heading into the fight with Ponce De Leon, whose knockout streak was ended at two, and his winning streak ended at seven.
