What Are Adrien Broner’s Thoughts On Devin Haney?
Adrien Broner has spoken out on a potential showdown with Devin Haney.
Haney is the WBC Lightweight Champion. He was promoted from interim status after Vasiliy Lomachenko vacated his gold. Haney is expected to return to action this fall with Yuriorkis Gamboa possibly being his next opponent.
Broner hasn’t competed since January 19, 2019. He suffered a unanimous decision loss to Manny Pacquiao. The fight reportedly drew about 400,000 buys on Showtime PPV.
Appearing on The Last Stand Podcast with Brian Custer, Broner explained why a potential clash with Haney doesn’t hold his interest (h/t Bad Left Hook).
“I don’t need Devin Haney, Devin Haney needs Adrien Broner. Let’s be honest, what do I get knocking out Devin Haney…nothing! Everyone is going to be like he’s supposed to do that he’s bigger, faster, stronger, he just did what he’s supposed to do. I’ve got everything to lose against a Devin Haney, I’ve got nothing to win from that.”
Broner actually has his sights set on Ivan Redkach. He claims that Redkach will be in for a rude awakening if the two were to collide. Redkach hasn’t competed since his January 25 loss to Danny Garcia. He was initially suspended by the New York State Athletic Commission for one year for biting the left side of Garcia’s neck. That sanction was reduced to six months.
