Granados: No Decision, I Want To Knock Adrien Broner Out!

By Carlos Boogs

Former four-division world champion Adrien "The Problem" Broner (32-2, 24 KOs) is going to have a real fight on his hands when he steps in the ring with hard-hitting Adrian Granados (18-4-2, 12 KOs) on February 18th, from the Cintas Center at Xavier University in Cincinnati.

Broner is back for the first time since an April stoppage win over Ashley Theophane.

Granados wants to continue the momentum he began in the fall of 2015, when he knocked out undefeated rising star Amir Imam, who was one fight away from a mandatory shot at the WBC junior welterweight title.

Granados is very familiar with Broner, as he helped him prepare for his 2013 welterweight clash with Marcos Maidana. In what became a big upset, Broner was dropped twice and suffered his first career defeat to Maidana.

"I'm confident that I'm more determined than any other fighter I'll face. I'll also have a few tricks up my sleeve on fight night. I haven't shown everything in my arsenal," Granados said.

"I was in camp with Adrien Broner when he fought Marcos Maidana, so I know him pretty well. I've been compared to Maidana, but everyone has their own style. I'm going to get this win my own way. I'm focused on what I have to do as a fighter. We have different weapons and we can mix it up and fight in different ways. The accumulation of my punches can wear a fighter down.

Granados is not looking for a decision win. Fighting in Broner's hometown, the Chicago native will be piling on the punches to wear Broner down to score a knockout.

"We're going to wait and see round by round. I don't like going to the judges' scorecard and fighting in his hometown, I'm going to try to get a knockout. I have to do anything in my power to keep the fight out of the judges' hands," Granados said.

"I've mostly fought at home in Chicago but I've always wanted a tough challenge on the road like this. I'm excited to step into someone's backyard and be the villain who ruins the day."

I dont see Granados stopping Broner. Granados beat Imam which was a bit of a shock but Imam was a prospect and Broner has the experience and uses a better defense and can counter better.

I think don't think Granados has the fire power to KO Broner

This could be another Maidana moment for Adrien Broner. It's possible. Who knows?

[quote=gentblue;17342992]winner of this fight should fight the burns/indongo winner. If burns's wins of course.[/quote] the crooked ref and judges in england will do everything to give burns the win even if he loses.... Thats how matchroom boxing rolls...
