Before his 'Big Bro', Floyd "Money" Mayweather, announced he would be facing the man who dethroned him for the WBA World Welterweight Title, Adrien Broner stopped by Route 30 Promotions' Sunday Night Fights to announce he was officially moving to Atlanta. He also stated that his next fight might be in the ATL.

Although it is clear that AB, which now stands for Atlanta Bound, is moving to Atlanta, what has become less clear is the destination for his next fight.

When Broner lost to Floyd's next opponent, Argentina's Marcos Maidana, the pound for pound king suggested Broner fight on his May 3rd undercard to get his career back on track against a solid light welterweight. FightHype.com is even reporting, according to their sources, it is a strong possibility this may happen. Broner even took to twitter, a la Mayweather, to ask his fans if that is something he should do.

Initially, Broner exercised his rematch clause against Maidana, but when the media and boxing fans balked at a rumored Mayweather vs. Amir Khan match-up, Floyd picked the tougher and more deserving Maidana.

This new development will definitely lead to much speculation as to who Broner's next opponent will be, and where. Atlanta or Las Vegas.
