Adrien Broner Signs With Don King



Adrien Broner Signs With Don King

This fits. Adrien Broner, boxing’s resident bad boy, has signed on with boxing’s Barnum, Don King, a fellow rogue survivor, and they are promising to do great things together.

Broner had a stint with BLK Prime, a fledgling platform provider which has found that the boxing game isn’t so intuitive as hoped and expected. That outfit showed their inexpertise when the execution of a planned Broner bout went off the rails, with multiple foes being chosen and then dumped.

Yes, Broner can expect more stability in the King camp. Broner has himself struggled with stability.

DK and AB, baby
