Adrien Broner has been on the other side of this matchup many times during his mercurial rise through the ranks of boxing.

The 27-year-old Cincinnati, Ohio native won his first 27 professional bouts, picked up four world titles along the way, and established himself as one of the brashest, boldest and most marketable young fighters on the circuit.

On that path to glory, he beat a long list of fighters considered to be a bit past their primes, or at least not quite up to par with his own formidable skills in the ring.

But this time around, Broner (33-2), who has tasted defeat twice over the past four years and seen his stock as the next big thing in boxing take a precipitous fall, is hoping to overcome the odds against unbeaten three-time world champion Mikey Garcia (36-0) Saturday night at Downtown’s Barclays Center.

Broner was at his cocksure best here four summers ago when he called out, then outpointed our borough’s own two-time world champion, Bensonhurst’s Paulie Malignaggi, back in June of 2013, just a few months shy of his first-ever loss to Argentina’s Marcos Maidana.

The Floyd Mayweather protege made headlines by sending a barrage of not-so-playful jabs at his opponent regarding a shared love interest in the days leading up to that fight.

Malignaggi held his own against the then-unbeaten Broner in the ring, narrowly losing his welterweight crown via a controversial split decision that raged on into the post-fight press conference, which nearly erupted into a brawl.

That was the type of fire Broner evoked from his opponents and the media during his rise to stardom.

But now, the fighter best known as “The Problem” is simply looking for a big win in the ring, and re-establishing himself as one of the best pound-for-pound pugilists on the planet.

[QUOTE=Corelone;17899165]Washington will tire first, if it comes to that. Miller is going to lean on him. Lean on him or on the ropes, but Washington won't be able to back him up. Washington wasn't doing all that good vs Wilder,…

[QUOTE=Thurman;17898356]Jarrell might f[I]u[/I]ck this up if he doesn't start fast enough. Washington could box his ears off, get an early points lead, and then Jarrell will gas out late. He can't let that happen. He needs to close the distance…
