Former WBC lightweight, WBA welterweight, and WBA light-welterweight champion Adrien Broner is set to make his much anticipated return to the boxing ring this month, February 20, live on Showtime pay-per-view.
Broner recently went onto Morning Kombat, where he was interviewed by Brian Campbell.
Campbell eventually asked Broner how he got back on track mentally, and what his drive for this comeback is. Broner responded with the following:
“Um, I woke up one day, I was drunk as fuck the night before, and I woke up and I said, I looked right up and I called Jarrell Tucker, one of my coaches. I was like, you know what, I’m done drinking. And everybody didn’t believe me.
“You know what I’m done drinking. I’m gonna start by training, getting back serious in boxing. And from that day on it was just like, let’s do it. And I told myself that day that I’d be a world champion. I’ve just been pushing forward since that every day.”
This was very exciting to hear. Some don’t care for Broner too much, but one thing is for certain, he’s made himself a wasted talent of sorts. He has so much potential that’s just been pushed to the side.
Broner is winless in his last three outings, going 0-2-1, losing unanimous decisions to Mikey Garcia and Manny Pacquiao, and going to a draw with Jessie Vargas.
Prior to that, he’d gone 33-2 (1 NC), only having lost unanimous decisions to Marcos Maidana and Shawn Porter. It’s hard to say how Broner will do in his comeback, but there is a plus in all of this, he’s still only 31-years-old.
We could still have yet to see the best of Adrien Broner. Chances are, it may be a little far fetched, but it’s still certainly possible he comes back more improved and better than ever before.
