Adrien Broner: No Issues, I Had an Amazing Training Camp

Former four division world champion Adrien Broner (32-2, 24 KOs) says there were no issues in his training camp for the upcoming fight with junior welterweight contender Adrian Granados (18-4-2, 12 KOs).

Broner vs. Granados is a Showtime televised main event on Saturday from the Cintas Center at Xavier University in Cincinnati.

"The Problem" is back for the first time since April of 2016, when he stopped Ashley Theophane. In that contest, Broner was set to defend his WBA junior welterweight title. He lost the title on the scale after failing to make weight.

The contest with Granados was scheduled to take place at a catch-weight of 142. Last week, Broner requested a change in weight - and now the fight is taking place at the full welterweight limit of 147-pounds.

Broner denied that there were any issues with weight and claims his training camp was great.

"I've had an amazing training camp and I feel great right now. I'm very thankful to my team who has helped me get to this point in my career," Broner said. "I know everyone is used to me coming up here and being boastful. That's not me anymore. I have a lot of respect for Adrian Granados and he's a great fighter.

"I'm a businessman that can fight. That's what I am nowadays. I'm not a sh*t talker anymore. I'm a businessman that knows how to fight.

Broner has stopped his last two opponents after having a minor drought when it came to victories inside the distance. He plans to put his punches together against Granados, but he won't be chasing the knockout. Broner wants to break Granados down and allow the KO to happen naturally.
 
"My best knockouts come when I don't go for the knockout. I look at my last fight and think to myself that it was terrible because I was looking for the knockout. I watch the Khabib fight, I didn't look for the knockout and it came. That's when the biggest knockouts come. I just want to go in there and put on a great performance for the hometown crowd," Broner said.
 
"I just want to put on a great performance for everyone in Cincinnati. It's going to be a special atmosphere and I want to give them their money's worth."

He'll go back to trash talking eventually. He just needs to choose his words better. I'm ready for the fight. I think he'll win this one, hopefully this fight ends in a ko.
