Ivan Redkach challenges Adrien Broner!

Well one thing is for certain: welterweight contender Ivan “El Terrible” Redkach (23-5-1, 18 KO’s) is looking for all the smoke! Redkach has remained a major talking point over the past several days due to regular WBA world lightweight champion Gervonta “Tank” Davis (23-0, 22 KO’s) leaking footage of their recent sparring session.

The video only illustrates the Ukrainian taking a notable thumping. It quickly went viral and has been discussed at length throughout the industry. Although not happy with the upload, Redkach let it be known he was not insanely angry over Tank’s action. He even eagerly looked forward to getting more work in with Davis.


After Redkach voiced his opinion on the matter, it appeared that the situation was dead. Well that was until junior welterweight Adrien “The Problem” Broner (33-4-1, 24 KO’s) couldn’t pass up the opportunity kick a little dirt on El Terrible’s name. Broner ,once a potential opponent for Redkach, uploaded his own video ridiculing the Ukrainian’s dismal performance in Tank’s video.

Having reviewed the upload, The Problem walked away feeling that had he would have easily knocked out Redkach in 2019. And that is what the Cincinnati wild man stated in his post.


Luckily for the fans, Redkach is not trying to avoid any in-ring collisions! When Davis posted his original video, the Ukrainian said he wanted to rumble again. He would maintain that same energy with Broner. Having seen what AB had to say, Redkach took to his own social media to challenge Broner to a legitimately sanctioned prizefight.

Attached to the call out however, is a series of video clips highlighting when Boner took his first professional loss to Marcos “El Chino” Maidana (35-5, 31 KO’s). Similar to the upload that Tank made, the post only depicts AB getting battered, hammered and humped.

It will be interesting to see where this goes next. After seeing that Redkach responded, it’s incredibly hard to believe that Broner will not have some follow-up commentary to the inflammatory rebuttal.
