GEORGE HERNANDEZ, Granados' Trainer
 
"Mike Stafford and I go all the way back to about 1978 at the Olympic training center. We've trained a lot of guys together and I know him very well. I've come here to bring fighters for sparring since Adrien Broner was a little kid.
 
"Adrien Broner has the big name and every fighter needs a big name so that he can take that step up. It's a business and we'll mean business inside the ring."

"This is going to be a great fight for the city of Cincinnati. Adrien is undefeated when he fights in his hometown." The last time AB fought in Ohio, I believe, he got schooled. Let's see if that happens again.

I hope Granados brings it on fight night and pounds Broner into submission. Just sayin.:boxing:

[QUOTE=richardt;17342325]And even worse than not dressing casual is that he is also wearing a suit that probably fit him in high school or earlier.[/QUOTE]that's a slim fitted suit granados is wearing most likely tailored to his frame...if you ask me…
