With an unbeaten record of 26-0-(22), and just 23 years old Adrien Broner has a bright future ahead of him. Add in the charismatic flamboyancy and arrogance of a young Floyd Mayweather Jr and you have the makings of the next big boxing superstar.
You have to be able to fight as well,though, and over the last 18 months wins over Eloy Perez, Vicente Escobedo and Antonio DeMarco to claim world titles at two weights has proved just that. The WBC lightweight champ has proved he belongs in the pound for pound top 10. Broner added the WBA welterweight title to his collection against Paulie Malignaggi on June 22.
