With 23 pro fights under his belt, you have to realize that 22-year old junior lightweight prospect Adrien Broner has a some time to go before he reaches the championship level, but after impressively defeating all his foes thus far, it’s hard not to get excited about the Cincinnati cyclone.
A standout amateur who came up in the same gym as 2000 US Olympians Ricardo Williams Jr. and Dante Craig, Broner was boxing – along with his twin brother Andre - before he even turned ten years old. And as he grew older, the results were even more impressive, as he won the prestigious Silver Gloves tournament in 2002 and 2003 and made it to the semifinals of the 2005 Junior Olympics.
By 2008, the pro game beckoned for Broner, and he made his debut on May 31st with a 32 second destruction of Allante Davis. His next two foes didn’t fare much better, with neither David Warren Huffman (1:20) or Ramon Flores (2:11) getting out of the opening round.
On November 22, 2008, Broner made it 4-0 by stopping Terrance Jett in six rounds in his Las Vegas debut on the Ricky Hatton vs Paul Malignaggi undercard, and 14 days later he was back in Vegas, taking out Scott Furney in just 74 seconds.
2009 continued Broner’s hit parade as he scored impressive decision wins over Jose Lugo, Eric Ricker, and Fernando Quintero, showing that he’s more than just a knockout artist. That doesn’t mean that Broner has abandoned his home run swing though, as he also found time to knock out five foes last year, including 15-1 prospect William Kickett, who the Cincinnati product halted in six rounds in June.
On January 23, 2010, Broner began his third calendar year as a pro with a fourth round TKO of Roberto Acevedo to improve to 14-0 with 11 KOs, and after halting Rafael Lora in a single round less than four months later, he won his first pro title with a sixth round TKO of Carlos Claudio on June 19th that earned him the vacant WBC Youth Intercontinental crown.
After defeating Gullermo Sanchez, Adiren went on to defeat his next two opponents Llido Julio (TKO) and John Revish (RTD). He then went to defeat his toughest opponent yet Daniel Ponce De Leon in a 10 round unanimous decision.
