Photos: Broner, Berto, Matthysse, Ortiz Workouts

CINCINNATI, Ohio – It’s homecoming time for Cincinnati favorite Adrien “The Problem” Broner.

Former three-division world champion Broner and super lightweight contender Emanuel “Tranzformer” Taylor held a media workout on Wednesday to kick-off fight week for this Saturday’s SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING® tripleheader on Saturday, Sept. 6 at U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati.

Broner (28-1, 22 KOs) and Taylor (18-2, 12 KOs) will meet in the 12-round super lightweight main event.  Broner spoke to his fans in attendance at Fountain Square Plaza and then opted to work out at a local gym rather than the sweltering outdoors in downtown Cincy.

In the co-feature, former WBA Super Lightweight World Champion Lucas Matthysse (35-3, 33 KOs) will square off with Mexico’s highly touted Roberto “Massa” Ortiz (31-0-1, 24 KOs) in a 12-round bout for Ortiz’s WBC Silver Super Lightweight Title.  Opening the telecast will be the return of former welterweight world champion Andre Berto (28-3, 22 KOs) against Steve Upsher (24-3-1, 6 KOs) in a 10-round welterweight bout.

Tickets, priced at $128, $78, $53 and $28, are available by calling Ticketmaster at 800-745-3000 or online at www.ticketmaster.com . Tickets will also be available at the U.S. Bank Arena Box Office.

Only fight I'm interested in watching from the televised portion of this card is Matthysse vs Ortiz, the other two fights and four fighters are garbage.
