Report: Broner to fight Litzau in June

Unbeaten Adrien Broner will fight Jason Litzau in June at a site to be determined, according to a report from boxingscene.com.

The 21-year-old Broner(20-0, 16 knockouts) saw his streak of knockouts broken at 10 in March when he won a controversial unanimous decisionover former WBO super bantamweight champion Daniel Ponce De Leon. Litzau (28-2, 12 KOs) fought in April, upsetting former junior featherweight titleholder Celestino Caballero by a split decision.

"Yes, we will do the fight," said Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions, which promotes Broner. "We're still working on the particulars, but, yes, the fight will happen."

Litzau's manager, John Wirt, also confirmed the deal, boxingscene.com reported.
