Adrien Broner to return to Atlantic City's Boardwalk Hall on February 16

Joe Robbins

Adrien Broner doesn't have an opponent for February 16, but his HBO main event has a home, as Broner will return to Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City.

Adrien Broner lacks an opponent for his February 16 return on HBO, but the WBC lightweight champ has a venue, as he'll return to Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City.

Broner (25-0, 21 KO) fought for the first time at the building on November 17, where he dismantled Antonio DeMarco to win his current title belt, making him a two-division titlist at age 23. Also on the card will be a rematch between Johnathon Banks and Seth Mitchell. Banks stopped Mitchell in the second round on the Broner-DeMarco undercard.

Two potential opponents have apparently been ruled out. WBO titleholder Ricky Burns will be fighting in late January, and would like to hold off on unification with Broner until the spring. And Richard Abril is reportedly lined up to face Sharif Bogere on March 2, for the vacant WBA belt.

With those fighters ruled out and Broner wanting to stay at 135 a bit longer, the options become a bit thin. Raymundo Beltran (27-6, 17 KO) is on a nice run right now, but he might be a hard sell. There has been talk from the camp of Yuriorkis Gamboa (22-0, 16 KO) that they want to fight Broner, which would certainly be interesting.
