Adrien Broner will be back in the ring on November 17 at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, with HBO televising the fight. The Cincinnati fighter has no opponent set for his move to the lightweight division, but there has been talk about him facing WBC champ Antonio DeMarco.

Broner (24-0, 20 KO) last fought on July 21, dominating Vicente Escobedo in a fight that wasn't entirely fair given that Broner missed weight and didn't exactly make a huge effort to get down to 130 pounds. He took a lot of criticism for that, but the fight drew a really good HBO Boxing After Dark number, and the 23-year-old is one of the only fighters left on the Golden Boy roster who is still with HBO, and not fighting on Showtime.

Broner was originally scheduled to return on October 6, and most of that talk centered on him facing Hank Lundy, but Lundy lost to Raymundo Beltran on July 27. Broner then moved to November 3, and now is pushed to November 17. Let's talk about that.

Golden Boy moving this fight to November 17 means that Top Rank will have to run on November 10, since they were targeting one of those two dates for an HBO double-header of their own. That also means that Top Rank will be going against the Mares vs Moreno show on November 10, which Showtime will televise. Pretty sneaky, sis.

Also featured on the card will be heavyweight prospect Seth Mitchell (25-0-1, 19 KO), who will be facing Johnathon Banks (28-1-1, 18 KO). That fight was supposed to take place in July, but Mitchell suffered a hand injury and had to pull out of the contest. Given Mitchell's near-shock against Chazz Witherspoon in his last fight, this one might be more dangerous than it seems to some.
