WBC lightweight titleholder Adrien Broner could make the first defense of his belt on the same night that heavyweights Johnathon Banks and Seth “Mayhem” Mitchell fight in a rematch.
Adrien Broner: “I know what fight can happen, and that’s me and [Manny] Pacquiao.”

New Jersey State Athletic Commissioner Aaron Davis: “I don’t want anybody to go to the hospital for a knockout, but if you’re going to get knocked out, it’s good that it’s for a good cause.”
Seth Mitchell: “I believe I’m two or three more fights away from a title shot. I don’t think I’m that far away at all.”
Antonio DeMarco: “It will be the talent of Adrien Broner against the hunger and heart of DeMarco. Without a doubt, he’s a very elusive and intelligent fighter. But we came prepared for that, and even more.”
Adrien Broner and Antonio DeMarco will be wearing Reyes gloves, considered the most advantageous for scoring knockouts, on Saturday night.
Adrien Broner: “Critics are like butt holes: Everybody’s got one. If I really just wanted to hear a butthole, I’ll pass gas.”
WBC lightweight titleholder Antonio DeMarco will emphasize placement of punches over volume in an attempt to counter the speed and defensive skills of rising former WBO junior lightweight beltholder Adrien Broner on Saturday.
Adrien Broner on Wednesday’s visit to the Atlantic City Boys and Girls Club: “I just want to put some smiles on peoples’ faces, man. I just want to make somebody’s day better. If I can brighten somebody’s day by just showing up, and helping out and helping to clean up, then I’ll do it. I would do that every day if I could.”
Adrien Broner on Saturday’s clash with Antonio DeMarco: “It’s definitely a defining fight for me. Not only is it a defining fight, but it’s a fight that can cross me over into another world that a lot of boxers can’t go to.”
Super middleweight fringe contender Yusaf Mack on IBF titleholder Carl Froch, who he challenges on Saturday in England: “I don’t fade and he can’t beat me.”
Adrien Broner: “With the talent that I have, the type of guy that I am, the charisma that I have, I knew that there would be some point in time when boxing will revolve around Adrien Broner.”
