Former four-division titleholder Adrien Broner will look to shed more than two years of inactivity when he returns to headline Showtime tripleheader on Saturday in a 147-pound bout against unbeaten Jovanie Santiago. Broner, 31, hasn’t fought since a lifeless pay-per-view loss to Manny Pacquiao in early 2019 and has endured countless troubles outside the ring in the interim including weight gain, alcohol addiction and legal issues.
Santiago, a native of Puerto Rico, will be stepping up in class for the toughest test of his career. The bout was originally scheduled for junior welterweight until both fighters agreed days before to raise the limit to welterweight. The co-main event pairs ranked heavyweights as Otto Wallin takes on Dominic Breazeale.
