On Saturday June 22nd, former two-time world title holder Adrien “The Problem” Broner will jump two weight classes to face WBA Welterweight Champion Paulie “Magic Man” Malignaggi at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The co-featured bout will be a re-scheduled rematch between Seth Mitchell & Johnathan Banks. Both matchups will be aired on Showtime Sports.
Broner(26-0, 22 KO’s) will be looking to add his third world title in as many weight divisions and remain undefeated in doing so. Meanwhile, the native Brooklynite, Malignaggi(32-4, 7 KO’s), is looking to make the second successful defense of his WBA title. Both mouthy fighters have already taken to social network Twitter to throw numerous verbal jabs at each other.
In the co-main event, Seth Mitchell(25-1-1, 19 KO’s) is seeking redemption against the man who handed him his first loss, Johnathan Banks(29-1-1, 19 KO’s) via second round TKO back on November 17th of 2012.
