Adrien Broner, the former four-division world champion, has publicly challenged WBC light welterweight champion Devin Haney, urging him to send the contract for a potential fight. Despite Haney’s recent victory against Regis Prograis for the title, he has been pursuing matchups with Ryan Garcia and Gervonta Davis without success.
While Haney has a mandatory challenger in Sandor Martin, who lacks PPV appeal, Broner has criticized Haney’s punching power, highlighting his absence of knockouts since 2019.
Although Broner is not currently ranked in the top 15 at 140, a voluntary defense against him could generate fan interest due to his provocative trash talk. While Haney has options, including a mandatory defense, the potential matchup with Broner could add an intriguing dynamic to the mix.

Broner took to Instagram, sharing a photo of their BoxRec stats before calling out Bill and Devin Haney with the following statement.

Adrien Broner’s bold callout to Devin Haney is a clear indication of his eagerness to step into the ring with the WBC light welterweight champion. Broner confidently contrasts his own abilities with what he perceives as Haney’s lack of knockout power. In response, Bill Haney, Devin’s father, dismissively expressed skepticism about Broner’s chances. Bill humorously suggested that Broner might take on roles like a commentator, referee, or even a concession stand worker at Devin’s fight instead of facing him in the ring.
“AB is going to be commentating at Devin’s fight before he gets into the ring with Devin, I guarantee you that…AB might be a referee at Devin’s fight, a judge, concession man, something, anything else but being in the ring with Dev. I guarantee you that. You can ask him. Ain’t no money in the world.”
Bill’s statement not only downplays Broner’s credibility as a serious contender but also emphasizes his confidence in Devin’s superiority.
