If all goes well for Adrien Broner on July 29 against Mikey Garcia, he is looking to be added to the Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor undercard and has Nate Diaz in mind for an opponent.
Add former four-division boxing champion Adrien Broner to the laundry list of fighters who want to compete on the undercard of potentially the biggest boxing event of all-time on August 26, Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor.
During Monday’s press conference promoting the July 29 main event on Showtime between Broner and Mikey Garcia, Broner took the podium to discuss the fact that he is being considered a huge underdog in his upcoming fight. Broner took the opportunity to compare his situation with that of McGregor’s, and if ll goes well in one of the biggest fight’s of the summer in boxing, he is looking for a quick turnaround with an opponent in mind.
“I heard they got Mikey at a 5-1 (favorite),” Broner said at the press conference. “They don’t give me no chance. But ya’ll sit up and say, ya know, ‘McGregor gonna beat Floyd.’ This boxing game is crazy man! So, after this fight, I just feel like if I come out untouched, ya know, I feel like I’m going to be victorious, I feel like I should fight on Floyd’s undercard against Nate Diaz.”
The fight between Broner and Garcia will take place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Broner, who is 27 years old, had recently spent time in jail for contempt of court after failing to appear for his trial on felony robbery and assault charges stemming from an incident back in January 2016. Broner most recently had a split decision win back in February over Adrian Granados in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Garcia will look to extend his undefeated professional record to 37-0. Garcia most recently captured the WBC lightweight title with a third round KO over Dejan Zlatičanin.
