Adrien Broner will take the lead over a double heavyweight showdown as the former world champion returns to action on November 4.
“The Problem’ aims to build on his comeback victory over Bill Hutchinson with a second outing of 2023. It will be the first time in six years Broner has fought more than once in a calendar year.
Don King, who just celebrated his 92nd birthday, has been working non-stop to put together another boxing card that is a night that fans will remember.
That birthday celebration will continue in his next non-stop promotion in his “Only in America 92 Celebration.” He has assembled a boxing extravaganza like no other set for Casino Miami Jai Alai.
Adrien Broner returns
“We are bringing the public a boxing card. All the fights will be co-feature events,” said King. “One great fight after another. It will be an action-packed night to remember. We have more to come.”
Broner, a four-time World Champion in four weight divisions, continues his return to the top of the welterweight division as he meets another Cincinnati, OH fighter in Chris Howard.
Stepping up to battle Broner, Howard is 18-2-1, 8 KOs as a professional.
As for his more prominent name opponent, Broner made his return to the ring on June 9 a successful one in winning a unanimous decision over William “Hutch” Hutchinson.
It was Broner’s first fight in nearly 26 months. Broner is on a mission to secure the 140-pound world title before retirement.
Mikaelian vs Makabu
The clash of two titans will occur in the WBC cruiserweight championship twelve-round bout featuring the top two ranked fighters.
Mandatory Silver Champion Noel Mikaelian (26-2, 11 KOs) from Miami via Armenia will get his toughest test. He takes on former champion Ilunga Makabu (29-3, 25 KOs) of Johannesburg, South Africa, via the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Makabu, who lost his title to Badou Jack as he was stopped in the 12th round, is hoping to regain his belt after Badou Jack dropped the title.
