Former four division world champion Adrien Broner is aiming for more gold in the near future.
This coming Friday night at the Casino Miami Jai Alai in Miami, Florida, Broner will return to the ring for the first time in over two years.
Broner, who makes his promotional debut for Hall of Famer Don King, has been out of the ring since February 2021, when he decisioned Jovanie Santiago.
The upcoming bout will only be the second contest for Broner since January of 2019, when he lost a twelve round decision to Manny Pacquiao.
The upcoming opponent is underdog Bill Hutchinson.
Broner is hoping the upcoming fight will lead him to a world title opportunity against newly crowned WBC world champion Regis Prograis.
“Hell yeah [I want to fight him for the title], Regis already know. If he’s still got that belt, I’m coming to take it. “We’re going to make it happen. We’re going to go get Regis - but we’re going to take care of this business and then we’re going to go get Regis for sure," Broner told Fight Hub TV.
“I don’t hate on Regis, I always shout him out. I’m happy for what he’s done. He just won another world title again, I’m proud of him too, but his name is on my list. There are a lot of people, but Regis’ name is definitely on there.”
Prograis is scheduled to make the first defense of his world title next Saturday, on June 17, when he steps in the ring with late-replacement Danielito Zorilla. Original opponent Liam Paro withdrew with a training injury. The event is a hometown gala for Prograi, with the card taking place at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans.
