Adrien Broner Expecting Tough Fight With Adrian Granados

Adrien Broner is predicting a tough night’s work on Saturday 18th February when he meets Adrian Granados at the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio live on BoxNation.

Speaking during training camp over the holiday season, ‘AB’ revealed: “I ain’t never met the man, I just know he’s a hell of a fighter.”

Granados wiped out previously unbeaten Amir Imam, who racked up an impressive 18-0 record with 15 stoppages prior to the fight in November 2015, which has only enhanced his reputation.

“He’s just come off a fantastic, electrifying win against a great prospect who they were bringing his name up to fight me. He went out there and stopped him! I want to congratulate him on that.”

The American Granados has drawn comparisons with Marcos Maidana, who handed Broner his first professional defeat, given his Mexican descent but the four weight World Champion insists: “There is only one Maidana and he’s retired!”

Whilst Granados’ record reads four defeats, two came via a split decision and the other two a majority decision result, with Broner aiming to be the first man to stop the 27 year old.

“He’s got nothing to lose, he’s fighting for the opportunity to be where I am. That’s why he’s very dangerous. He can fight. I know this is not going to be a walk in the park,” concluded ‘The Problem’ who was talking with FightHype.

Broner is garbage, he depends totally of his physical strength and weight. Broner doesn't have defense, and he has a very bad footwork. This guy is the worst hyped fighter in the history. The next Floyd hahaha and his best…

Another PBC mismatch, Granados has no chance.Broner sucks but Granados is worse. Granados has 0 chance of winning a decision and he won't knock him out.

Is Broner still the next Mayweather? The heir apparent? Come some of you guys are in this thread that said that.

Rooting for AB to get back on track. Tons of fight I want to see him in.

Again, we don't want to hear long-layoff excuses for losing the fight or bad performance. I don't even know why some fans are quick to say things like, "Oh he would have performed well if not for the long layoff,"…
