Adrien Broner vs Jovanie Santiago- What’s in store for us?

We can expect a nail-biting contest between them, as both have their reasons to bag an immediate win. Being a professional for so many years, Santiago has never touched a major world title. So, he would try to vanquish Broner and cement his position for a future championship bout.

Meanwhile, Broner has lost his relevancy from the ongoing title ride due to his lengthy spell away from the ring. On bagging a win, the former world champion can once again bring his name amongst the other title contenders.

Height, weight, and reach

The bout will be contested at 147 pounds, which is a division where ‘The Problem’ has won a championship. As per Box Rec, Adrien Broner, the 5’6” tall orthodox puncher has a reach of 69”.

5’7” tall Jovanie Santiago is also an orthodox boxer and has a 1” reach advantage over Broner. So, on paper, he might challenge the former world champion, especially with a clean record.

Record

Broner has faced umpteen world champions in his career and has been a titleholder himself. He has a professional record of 33 wins (24 KOs) and 1 loss. That said, Broner has never lost a fight via knockout and is still an elite of the sport.

‘El Lobito’ Santiago has 14 wins and 1 draw under his name He has attained 10 KOs in his 14 wins and has a KO ratio of 66.67%. However, he hasn’t faced any major name in his career. So, a fight against Adrien Broner will certainly be a whole different ball game.

Jovanie Santiago has 826 followers on Instagram with no reported Twitter account. He is also not active on social media platforms. It can be a major reason why he could never become a household name in boxing.

On the other side, Santiago’s reported net worth isn’t credible. So, it’s safe not to assume a number. ‘El Lobito’ can change things if he heads into the next week with his undefeated streak intact.

The upcoming fight can change both the boxers’ fortunes and can pave the path for a fresh start in their respective careers.
