Adrien Broner Optimistic About His Future Career
Adrien Broner (34-4-1, 24 KOs) seems to be the kind of athlete that doesn’t get intimidated by a few losses here and there.
In a recent interview, the Cincinnati-based boxer rejected the idea that his upcoming fight against Omar Figueroa Jr. has a “win or go home” ideology associated with it.
The 33-year-old has suffered defeats against Manny Pacquiao, Marcos Maidana, Shawn Porter and Mikey Garcia. Therefore, many people are more focused on his life outside the ring than what he can offer inside the ring.
“Redemption type of fight?” Broner said of facing Figueroa on Cigar Talk. “First of all, redemption is for people who lose. I ain’t ever lost. Yeah, I lost a fight, but you gotta think, bro. I’m from Cincinnati. When I started, I was broke. So, everything I do from that is a plus.
“Didn’t anybody know me? Ain’t nobody knows [other nickname] ‘Twin.’ They know Adrien Broner. They know AB. So, everything I do and what I’m doing now is a plus. So, redemption? How? How is that redemption.”
Despite there being disappointments in his career, the multiple-time world champion believes that his place in sports history is secure.
“I know that I’m going to the Hall of Fame bro. If I don’t ever fight again, I know I’m going to the Hall of Fame. 100%.”
