The scheduled 10-round bout, promoted by Christy Martin Promotions, is slated for February. A fight date and location will be announced at a later date.
Broner, known for his flashy style, in his last outing scored a unanimous decision victory over Jovanie Santiago (14-2-1, 10 KOs) in November 2020. His last fight before that was a unanimous decision loss to Manny Pacquiao in 2019. Broner is eager to show the world he still has what it takes to become a world champion again.
Redkach, a Ukrainian-born boxer who now fights out of Los Angeles, has been in the ring with some of the best, which include Regis Prograis, Devon Alexander, and Danny Garcia to name a few.
In a battle of former world champions, Mickey Bey (23-3-1, 11 KOs) and Tevin Farmer (30-5-1, 6 KOs) will square off in a lightweight matchup on the undercard.
