Adrien “The Problem” Broner was born in Cincinnati, Ohio in the United States on July 28th in 1989. His interest in boxing began at a young age as he is credited with starting to train at just 6 years old. The lifetime dedication paid off for Broner when he joined the pro ranks in 2008. The powerful right hander was 21-0 with 17 knockouts when he received his first world title fight in 2011. Broner’s power was on full display when he scored a 3rd round knockout over Vicente Rodriguez to win the vacant WBO super featherweight world title.
In 2012 Broner lost the WBO title on the scales when he failed to make weight for his title defense against Vicente Escobedo. Broner won that fight via 5th round TKO and moved up to lightweight in his next bout and won the WBC lightweight world title with an 8th round stoppage of Antonio DeMarco.
Broner won his 3rd world title with a split decision win over Paulie Malignaggi to capture the WBA lightweight championship. Later that year Broner tasted defeat for the first time as a pro when he lost a unanimous decision to Marcos Maidana. In 2015 Broner won the vacant WBA light welterweight world title to become a world champ in four different weight classes.
