Adrien Broner’s Feb. 25 fight in jeopardy as second replacement opponent withdraws due to injury

Michael Williams Jr has reportedly suffered a broken jaw in the lead up to the scheduled fight.

Whether or not Adrien Broner actually fights on Feb. 25 remains to be seen.

Adrien Broner’s has yet to make his return to the ring but things have been pretty eventful in the lead up to his scheduled Feb. 25 PPV, and now the fight is in further jeopardy as he’s lost a third scheduled opponent.

Michael Williams Jr, who was the replacement for Hank Lundy, who was the replacement for Ivan Redkach, is out of the fight due to a broken jaw suffered in sparring.

Broner had originally been planned to face Redkach for his debut with BLK Prime but Redkach would ultimately withdraw with promotional issues, with Lundy stepping in.

Lundy would soon be forced to withdraw from the fight himself due to a medical suspension, with little-known Williams then stepping in as the second replacement opponent.

And with such short notice, it may be hard for BLK Prime to find a yet another replacement opponent for Broner, whose comeback may be forced to be put on hold. Bad news for Broner and BLK Prime, but this whole event seems to have a dark cloud hanging over it.

We’ll provide more information as it becomes available.
