Broner Calls Matchroom Offer A “Slave Deal”

It seems Eddie Hearn has begun to make his play for big name American fighters, at least that’s what Adrien Broner is claiming.

On Wednesday, Broner took to his Instagram account to put the Matchroom Boxing CEO on blast for a three fight offer set at $6,750,000. Broner would openly reject the offer, and call it a “Slave Deal.”

 

Further to our recent conversations, you may have seen our announcement last week for our new deal for 16 shows per year in the US. I would be very interested to offer Adrien a three-fight promotional agreement as follows:

Fight 1 – Sept 2018 – Purse $2,000,000

Fight 2 – March 2019 – Purse $2,250,000

Fight 3 – September 2019 – Purse $2,500,000

This will give AB security and also a concrete schedule to work from. 3 fights in 12 months!

Broner has no official promoter, but has worked with Al Haymon, who operates Premier Boxing Champions, who’s stable may be ripe for the poaching following Hearn’s $1 Billion deal with Perform Group’s DAZN platform.

 

Broner recently went to a majority draw against Jessie Vargas in April at Barclays Center.
