Regis Prograis has claimed Adrien Broner is "f****** my money up" after the American was pictured in handcuffs on Monday.
"The Hurricane" switched over to PBC and is now advised by Al Hayman - the same promoter who looks after Broner.
Chances of a bout between the duo meeting in the ring at 140-pounds is likely - as long as Broner remains out of jail, that is. The junior welterweight division currently has Jose Ramirez and Josh Taylor holding all four major world titles and they are expected to meet in 2021 to determine the undisputed champion.
Despite the magnitude of the expected bout, Prograis - who defeated Juan Heraldez in San Antonio over the weekend - believes the money fight is himself against Broner.
"I think that's a huge fight," Prograis said. "I think for me, that's a huge fight. Now you can say we're like stablemates now [with Al Haymon's Premier Boxing Champions], so I think that's a huge fight, man. If me and Adrien Broner fight at 140, that's the biggest fight you can make at 140. Whatever champion you have in any organization, if me and him fight for nothing, for no type of belts or nothing like that, that's gonna be the biggest fight.
"You can put that on pay-per-view, and that's gonna be the biggest fight, simply because of our personalities, we all know the same people and, you know, both of us like to talk a lot of sh-t and, you know, we're entertainers, basically. So, I think that that'll be a huge fight and now I think it actually - I've been wanting that fight for like years now. But I think now, it can really come to fruition now."
Prograis believes he would "whup" the Cincinnati fighter.
"What you want me to say, Adrien Broner's gonna beat me?," Prograis said. "I think I'll whip his ass! I think I'll whup Broner, you know? I don't know how it'll go, but I definitely think I'll beat him."
Broner - nicknamed "The Problem" is scheduled to return to the canvas in January which will see him fight for the first time in two years since his defeat to Manny Pacquiao.
