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 Tickets will also be available at the U.S. Bank Arena Box Office.

[QUOTE=RetroSpeed05]Nah, He did that in the Eloy Perez fight. Watch the weigh ins for that and you'll see Broner tried to copy Floyd.[/QUOTE] he was also like 18 or 19 years old give the kid a break

[QUOTE=Corelone]1. Marcos did it 2. Same Broner 3. Fear drives hysteria, panic. Taylor is a good pro, Algieri outran Provo too. A little extra out of Taylor, and he's been in serious training, and Broner will have another problem. I think he has a chance, by the look in his eyes.[/QUOTE] ok...

I think Taylor can win. He's been steadily improving and broner looks average to **** against good fighters.

[QUOTE=LarryXXX]So Lucas is going to go life and death with a club fighter?[/QUOTE] If you have never seen Ortiz fight just say so. This is about a 60/40 fight in Lucas' favour. Ortiz is bringing the heat on Saturday night.
