Adrien Broner Hints At Retirement In Now-Deleted Instagram Post

Former world champion Adrien Broner may have indicated that he might be done with boxing.

In an Instagram post that has since been deleted, Broner said he is done with boxing after previously saying he is committed to promoter Al Haymon and Showtime after briefly entertaining the idea of joining Eddie Hearn's Matchroom Boxing USA stable that would fight on the DAZN platform set to be launched in the United States later this summer.

Broner's in-ring career is still solid as the former four-division world champion was ordered by the WBC to rematch Jessie Vargas in a WBC welterweight title eliminator after the two fought to a draw back in April. That fight, which took place at the Barclays Center, headlined a Showtime Championship Boxing broadcast.

If this is truly the end of Broner's career, then he retires as one of the most decorated champions in boxing of the 21st century. Broner is just one of 17 men in boxing history to win a major world title in at least four weight classes. Broner, 28, has fought the likes of Mikey Garcia, Marcos Maidana, Shawn Porter and Paulie Malignaggi, sporting a 33-3-1 pro record.
