Here is what the participants had to say Thursday from the Cintas Center:

LEONARD ELLERBE, CEO of Mayweather Promotions

“We’re very excited to be here in this wonderful city. It’s a great boxing town with a history of very good fighters from this area. Saturday night is an outstanding show from top to bottom.

“Both of the Adrien/Adrian’s know each other very well. You want to watch Adrien Broner Saturday night. He’s going to put on a phenomenal performance that I can’t wait to see.

“From top to bottom this is an incredibly exciting card and we’re excited to work with About Billions to give boxing fans another great event.”

STEPHEN ESPINOZA, Executive VP & General Manager, SHOWTIME Sports

“At SHOWTIME our mission is to bring fans the biggest, best and most meaningful fights in boxing. This Saturday is no exception. These are three all-action and evenly matched fights. This is our third time in Cincinnati with Adrien Broner and this is the strongest card we’ve had here yet.

“When we announced our slate of winter fights, there was one event that I circled and said, ‘this is going to be the sleeper.’ This is an all-action card.

“Adrian Granados and his team did not hesitate one bit to jump at this fight. We know what type of fighter Adrien Broner is. He is a guy who will never shy away from a challenge. Whether you like him or not, Adrien always entertains and he always fights hard. I can’t wait for a great night on Saturday.”

[QUOTE=Travycat;17430302]If Broner has his mind right and is out of trouble, he's pretty fun to watch. He'll never make Mayweather money like he's always talking, but he could have a career that nets him 100 mil by the time he's…

Broner's a good fighter but it's still mind boggling that Broner is a 4 division world champion via wins over Paulie Malignaggi, Antonio DeMarco, Vicente Rodriguez, and...who was the fourth again? Lol

This card is fire. All 50/50 fights All fighters have heart (well atleast Marcus Brown was an olympian [tho we all know he really lost his last fight]) And this is do or die for Broner, and his opponent is…

Thomas Williams looks very serious and I have a hunch he's going to KO Marcus Browne. What does anyone else think?
