Boxing News: Mayweather vs Broner, Ruiz or Ortiz vs Fury

Adrien Broner offered Floyd Mayweather an exhibition fight to negate the need for either of them ever to fight again.

“The Problem,” says Mayweather could agree on a contest with him and then walk away into the sunset with nine figures.

Mayweather vs Broner

“If I was Floyd and he was me, he would never have to fight again,” he told Cigar Talk on Mayweather vs Broner. “This is so easy! This is a layup.

“We can do an exhibition, ten rounds. The whole world is going to watch it. We are going to get in there and go to work!

“We can hug and go in the back and get a bag. But at the end of the day, I don’t know what’s his feelings.”

Broner vs Figueroa

Meanwhile, Adrien Broner fights Omar Figueroa on August 20 in Hollywood, Florida. According to the WBC, the World Boxing Council’s Silver Super Lightweight title will now be at stake.

Premier Boxing Champions present the event.

Broner (34-4-1, 24 KOs) was set to fight Figueroa (28-2-1, 19 KOs) in April 2018. But that fight was postponed due to Figueroa sustaining an injury.

On the other hand, Broner fought Jessie Vargas to a draw and was coming off a loss to Mikey Garcia.

Manny Pacquiao defeated Broner before scoring a decision over Jovanie Santiago in February 2021. That was Broner’s only win since a split decision over Adrian Granados in 2017.

Broner remains a big name. The 32-year-old American’s fight with Figueroa will take place at 140 pounds, his first since Garcia defeated him.

Figueroa, a former world champion, has not won since a decision over John Molina in 2019.

The 32-year-old has fought twice since then: a decision loss to Yordenis Ugás in 2019 followed by a loss to Abel Ramos last year.

Andy Ruiz or Luis Ortiz vs Tyson Fury

In further WBC news, Andy Ruiz Jr. and Luis Ortiz will fight for the chance to challenge Tyson Fury as mandatory.

The former heavyweight champion Ruiz returns to the ring to swap power punches with ‘King Kong’ Ortiz on September 4 at the Crypto Arena in Los Angeles, California.

Andy (34-2-0, 22 Ko’s), 32, had not fought since May 1, 2021, when he defeated Chris Arreola by unanimous decision.

His rival, Luis “King Kong” Ortiz, 43, has a record of 33 wins with 28 knockouts, with two losses, both by KO.

His most recent fight was on January 1 of this year, when he knocked out Charles Martin in Hollywood.

“This fight will be an elimination endorsed by the World Boxing Council, with the winner advancing to fight the Green and Gold Champion,” confirmed the WBC.

Luis Ortiz is entirely focused on gaining victory over Andy Ruiz next September, predicting an outright war with the former heavyweight champion.

Andy Ruiz is confident of obtaining victory and being able to aspire to a new opportunity for the Green and Gold accolade, which giant Brit Tyson Fury currently holds.
