Adrien “The Problem” Broner (30-1-0, 22 KOs) kicked off the first ever Premier Boxing Champions card with a dominant performance over John “The Gladiator” Molina Jr. (27-6-0, 22 KOs) who looked more like a human punching bag than a boxer for the majority of the 12-round fight.
Although the fight wasn’t as exciting as some thought it might have been, it showcased Broner as one of the bright young talents in the Super Lightweight division today.
He was able to work off a stiff jab over the course of the fight, setting up multiple shot combinations that left Molina stiff and stingy with his output.
Moving forward, Broner will certainly be looking to step up his competition. Tonight was his third win in a row over a mediocre opponent since receiving the only loss of his career to Marcos Maidana, back in December 2013.
So let’s take a look at some possible options for Broner’s next fight–which he confirmed will be June 20–whether he will continue to pursue middle of the road competition, or if he’ll push for an opportunity to win a major world title in a fourth weight class.
