Adrien Broner suspension lifted by the WBC

Phil Jay 16/07/2014

The World Boxing Council have informed WBN that a suspension handed down to ex-lightweight king Adrian Bromer has now been lifted.

Broner, 24, was reprimanded by the WBC back in May following his one-sided victory over Carlos Molina and duly banned from being considered to fight for any WBC title in future.

After expressing his regret, the American has now been welcomed back into the fold at number three in the July rankings, with the WBC releasing the following  statement on the matter: 

“The WBC Board of Governors has voted in favor of accepting the public apology presented by Adrien Broner during his hearing at the Nevada State Athletic Commission. The suspension which was in place has been lifted, and the WBC Ratings Committee has ranked him at No. 3 in the super lightweight division.

“Mr. Broner, a former WBC lightweight champion, is expected to understand his role in society while being a public figure and as a former champion, represent the organization which believes in human equality, fair play, and has an ongoing campaign against bullying.”

‘The Problem is rumoured for a return to the ring on September 6 competing on the same bill as Argentine rival Lucas Matthysse as the two continue to be linked to a future clash at 140lbs.

Current WBC champion Danny Garcia is mulling over a move up to welterweight, meaning Broner could be one of those considered, along with Matthysse, to fight for the vacant green belt.
