Adrien “The Problem” Broner will fight at home for the first time in over two years on Saturday night, facing Emmanuel Taylor in junior welterweight action at the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati.
Broner is a former three-division world champion, but he’s been on the road to redemption since suffering the first defeat of his career at the hands of Marcos Maidana last December. He moved down to 140 pounds for his in-ring return, taking a wide decision over Carlos Molina on The Moment: Mayweather vs. Maidana undercard in May.
Taylor has a huge opportunity on a big stage to make a name for himself. The 23-year-old Maryland native earned this spot by outpointing Karim Mayfield in July, and his quick hands and boxing ability make him a live underdog.
Will Broner have a successful homecoming? Or will Taylor add to his woes?
