The time is now for Adrien Broner
Adrien Broner’s new trainer Kevin Cunningham admits he was skeptical at first about training Broner. He had heard many times about the inconsistencies and other issues.
Broner however, assured Cunningham that he was ready to rededicate himself and properly prepare for his upcoming fight with Jesse Vargas.
According to Cunningham, when he was contacted by Broner for the head trainer position, following the lost to Mikey Garcia, he told Broner that in order for the new partnership to work, everything had to be Cunningham’s way.
Cunningham was upfront with Broner about what was expected and needed and how things were going to be. If Broner wasn’t ready to adhere to those guidelines then there was no reason to waste his time or mine said Cunningham.
So far, Broner has been able to keep his promise to Cunningham during training camp. They even addressed the low punch output that has become an issue, along with staying focused for the entirety of the fight.
Broner will be at a significant size disadvantage in this fight although him and his team don’t feel that will be an issue. This is the fight we need to see Broner get serious about remaining focused if he’s going to start moving his career back in the right direction.
