ADRIEN BRONER, Former Three-Division World Champion:

“I’m more than excited to be back in Cincinnati.  It’s like when you spoil a kid —when you buy a kid a new pair of sneakers, the next time they come out they are going to expect another pair.  Every time I’ve fought at home I gave my fans a knockout.  I spoiled my fan base in Cincinnati.  So every time I fight here that’s what they want.

“I have to give them a knockout, I got to.  And it’s got to be pretty, too.  I think I’m going to hit him with the 30 piece and the biscuit.

“My fans keep supporting me and I’m going to fight for them.  We’ve waited a long time to get to this spot and now we have to stay on top.

“My mind isn’t anywhere but on Emanuel Taylor.  That’s my main objective.  After I get my job done then I’ll think about another fight.  But right now I’m focused on what I have to do.”

“I’m going to put on a show like I always do and I’m ready right now.

“I know Taylor pretty well and I respect him, but at the end of the day he’s my enemy. I have to go out there and get my victory.”
