Showtime Kicking Off 2017 With Broner + Garcia vs Thurman

showtime-schedule-2017After a dismal spring and summer, Showtime network revealed via press release a robust boxing schedule of compelling match-ups including two title unification bouts and a anticipated title rematch.

Heading into 2017, the bout between between welterweight champions Danny Garcia and Keith Thurman is expected to be among most talked about fights of the year while boxing’s favorite prodigal son Adrien Broner makes his return against Adrian Granados.

Fighting for the first time since April 2016 against Mayweather Promotions stablemate Ashley Theophone, Adrien Broner looks to shake off the effects of a trouble plagued 2016 that culminated with messy, public spats with “Big Bro” Floyd Mayweather and suicide threats in social media.

The proposed match-up between Danny Garcia vs Keith Thurman is one fans, and Thurman, have wanted for quite some time. When the two finally meet, Garcia looks to shake off a 3-year old “cherry picking” label while Thurman has the chance to silence the critics that don’t believe he lives up to the hype.

Flip the page to see the planned fight schedule to round out 2016 and 2017 if all goes according to plan.
