Junior welterweight champion Adrien Broner will be taking on the undefeated Mikey Garcia next as Showtime just announced the fight has been signed. Rumors of the fight began to swirl when FightHype posted the information a few weeks back.
The venue of the showdown was not mentioned however it's believed that the fight will take place at the Barclay's Center in Brooklyn. Broner is coming off three straight victories since losing to Shawn Porter. The questionable career of Broner finds him in another situation against a top level opponent. In the past Broner has failed to capitalize in victory against elite opposition.
Garcia will be looking to gain some star power to a career that was stalled for over two years. Since his return Garcia has been making some noise again and this fight is surely to get some major promotion behind it as Broner's personality tends to draw viewers.
The fight will take place at the junior welterweight division.
