Age might have gotten the best of Don King, but his acumen to get his fighters the best fights out there remains strong. Perhaps, that is why when the time dawned to restart his career, which was marred in negative coverage, Adrien Broner sought the 92-year-old legend’s assistance. Now, having received it, and tested waters with it, Broner believes he’s at the precipice of taking over the world. Of course, these ambitions make their way with King’s confidence in him.

Cincinnati-based, Broner who lept out of the ring after his 2020 win over Jovanie Santiago, did not see the face of a professional undertaking until last year. The two-year-long sabbatical was attributed to the mental health issues and alcoholism that he struggled with. However, when most assumed that ‘The Problem’ had hung his gloves for good, his resilience shone through. In a shocker, to start from where he left off, Broner defeated Bill Hutchinson last year on points. The victory boosted his confidence and his credibility as a fighter. Hence, to embark upon this streak, he hopes to follow suit.
