Comments Thread For: Holiday Treat, Broner Brings Big Time Boxing Back to Cincy
By Jake Donovan - It’s been a decade since the last time Cincinnati boxing fans were blessed with a title fight in their beloved hometown. Tim Austin – aptly named “The Cincinnati Kid” - was in the heart of his prime and still a few years away from running afoul with the law when twice defended his bantamweight belt at home, the last time coming in June ’01 when he knocked out Steve Dotse in six rounds.
If that seems like a long time ago, then just think about the list of titlists to come from Queen City – a whopping six fighters, the first coming nearly 80 years ago.
Do the math - it’s not even one per decade.
Adrien Broner hopes to help somewhat narrow the gap when he takes to the ring tonight for his vacant super featherweight title fight against Vicente Martin Rodriguez of Argentina. The fight takes place at the U.S. Bank Arena – home of the Cincinnati Cyclones, a minor league hockey team – and airs live on HBO as part of a split-site doubleheader, paired with a 154 lb. title fight between Saul Alvarez and Kermit Cintron.

broner is slowly growing on me
that fight with ponce set him back, certainly
the kid does have skills
he does have talent
and ask litzau, when he puts his punches together he can get you out of there.
they ought to move him quickly, though
i dont see him jumping a bunch of weight classes with the way he's built
