Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn. - In a welterweight fight, former four division world champion Adrien Broner (34-4-1, 24 KOs) return to the ring to win a twelve round unanimous decision over previously undefeated Jovanie Santiago (14-1-1, 10 KOs) of Puerto Rico. (photos by Amanda Westcott)
The scores were 115-112, 116-111 and 117-110.
Broner was snapping a two-year layoff, with his last fight taking place back in January of 2019, when he lost a twelve round unanimous decision to Manny Pacquiao.
The fight was much closer than what the official cards indicated from the judges. Santiago lost a point for hitting after the bell. Broner had given up much of the first half, but then picked things up in the last six rounds of the fight.
