Adrien Broner has a much easier job on paper after replacing Hank Lundy for Ivan Redkach in a promotional row regarding a $35,000 payment.

Broner had been locked in to face Redkach for weeks. Even a press conference happened, and the pair posed beside each other in the promotion.

However, a few days ago, rumbles began that something untoward was going on with Redkach.

The Ukrainian began putting out cryptic messages over the fight. Before long, the six-loss super-lightweight revealed all.

An argument with promoter Joe DeGuardia had erupted. The row left Redkach facing the loss of his place against Broner.

In a plea to DeGuardia, alongside calling him some choice words, Redkach offered to pay $35,000 out of his purse to keep the main event on.

Adrien Broner switch

On Tuesday, it became apparent that Broner needed to switch to ensure he’d have an opponent for February 25.

Black Prime released a statement to World Boxing News confirming Redkach had been dropped in favor of Lundy.

‘Hammering’ Hank has six more defeats than Redkach and should be a straightforward win for Broner.

Redkach was seen as a tough test for the highly inactive Cincinnati boxer.

“Due to circumstances out of the control of BLK Prime, Ivan Redkach will now be replaced with “Hammerin” Hank Lundy,” read the information.

“Redkach was intended to fight Adrien Broner in a ten-round welterweight main event on February 25,

“The Broner vs. Lundy bout, taking place at the Gateway Center in Atlanta, Georgia, will broadcast worldwide on BLK Prime PPV for $39.99.

“More details, including ticket sales and undercard bouts, will be announced later.”
