ADRIEN BRONER will defend his WBA world super-lightweight title against Ashley Theophane at the DC Armory in Washington April 1.

Broner – who has held world titles at super-featherweight, lightweight and welterweight – won the vacant title with a 12th round stoppage of Khabib Allakhverdiev last October.

He will make the first defence of his title against London’s Theophane on April Fool’s Day and, having spent plenty of time in Washington during his various training camps, is excited to fight there for the first time.
