For a fight against Ryan Garcia, Broner (35-4-1, 24 KOs), a former four-division world champion, claims that “I don’t need a tune-up.”
Adrien Broner has claimed that he was recently informed of an offer to compete against Ryan Garcia. He wants Garcia to know that after his impressive victory in Houston, Texas over Oscar Duarte (December 2), he will be ready to fight Garcia.
Though it’s thought Oscar De La Hoya put his feelers out for this fight months ago, it’s unknown why the former superstar Broner is only now learning of Golden Boy Promotions’ interest in employing him as Ryan’s opponent.

Adrien Broner Agrees To Fight Ryan Garcia
The fact that Ryan and his promoter would fight Broner—who many believe is finished after a lengthy 15-year career—would be a sign of insecurity. For a fight against Ryan Garcia, Broner (35-4-1, 24 KOs), a former four-division world champion, claims that “I don’t need a tune-up.”
“I’m the same person that fought Manny Pacquiao,” Broner said. This is not good, because AB was terrible in the fight and lost by unanimous decision to the then-40 year-old Filipino superstar after twelve rounds.
It’s not clear if De La Hoya will still use Broner as Ryan’s opponent on Super Bowl Weekend in February 2024. Oscar has expressed an interest in pairing Ryan Garcia with Teofimo López, the WBO’s light welterweight champ, or Devin Haney if Ryan Kingry (26-1,21 KOs) wins the fight on DAZN in Houston on December 2, 2024.
Garcia asked Gervonta for a rematch via social media. If he can get one, that would be best for the popular prospect. Ryan wouldn’t earn as much money from a Tank Davis rematch as he would by facing Haney or Teofimo.
Ryan’s fight with Broner will be less competitive than the bout he had with obscure lightweight contender Duarte. Broner’s lack of performance in his last two fights is understandable, given that he only fights every other year. Broner took a year off after his last fight, which is unusual for a fighter. It’s hard to maintain peak performance when a fighter does that.
Broner’s 34-year-old age and the fact that he hasn’t received any better offers at this point of his career make it a good idea for him to accept the fight if it is offered. Broner’s career has been revived with the help of Don King, who has helped him to defeat Bill Hutchinson twice and Jovanie Santos twice.
