The fight announced between Adrien Broner and Omar Figueroa for next August 20 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, in Hollywood, Florida, will be a nice confrontation between two veterans who are looking for another opportunity.

Both Broner and Figueroa were among the best in the world in their time and although their careers are not at their prime, there are high expectations for the showdown and how it could serve the winner as they look for bigger opportunities at this point in their careers.

Broner lost to Manny Pacquiao in 2019 and took a long break until reappearing in 2021 with a unanimous decision win over then unbeaten Jovanie Santiago. The American will return to super lightweight after making several fights at welterweight, which could be a positive for him.

Figueroa, who has always been a tireless fighter, comes in with two straight losses to Yordenis Ugas and Abel Ramos, which have been the only two of his career so far. The American of Mexican descent wants to get back to winning ways and will also return to 140 pounds after a long time at 147.

Broner has a record of 34 wins, 4 losses, 1 draw and 24 knockouts, while Figueroa has 28 wins, 2 losses, 1 draw and 19 knockouts.
