This past Friday night, inside of the DC Armory in Washington, D.C., four-division world champion Adrien “The Problem” Broner halted a game Ashley Theophane in under nine rounds of action.
Broner (32-2, 24 KO’s) established early command of the fight against Theophane (39-7-1, 11 KO’s) and appeared to stun his UK foe a few times in the early rounds. Theophane, to his credit, fought valiantly and attempted to rally in the middle rounds.
In the ninth round, referee Luis Pabon called a halt to the action after seeing Theophane take some punishment along the ropes. Broner will now be in line for an even bigger championship fight and Theophane too will be able to bounce back from this.
