Undefeated jr lightweight prospect Adrien Broner (20-0) will take on hard-hitting crowd pleaser Jason Litzau (28-2) this Saturday, June 18th. The bout is the featured undercard of the Saul Alvarez vs Ryan Rhodes HBO Boxing After Dark telecast set to air live from Arena VFG in Jalisco, Mexico at 10:30pm ET.
Broner is coming off his toughest test to date, a close but unanimous decision victory over former titleholder Daniel Ponce De Leon. It was Broner’s first win over a notable opponent as the 21 year old continues to build his young career. Litzau comes into the fight having won five contests in a row, the last being a stirring split-decision win over Celestino Caballero. Litzau’s two losses are to Robert Guerrero and Jose Andres Hernandez, both by knockout in eight rounds.
This will be the first time either fighter has fought professionally outside of the United States.
