Although three-division titleholder Adrien Broner called out THE RING’s No. 1-rated junior welterweight Lucas Matthysse after defeating Emmanuel Taylor on Saturday, Broner’s trainer, Mike Stafford, would rather his top fighter go for a 140-pound title first.
Adrien Broner earned a hard-fought 12-round unanimous decision over Emmanuel Taylor in their Showtime-televised main event on Saturday in Broner’s home town of Cincinnati. Broner, who scored a knockdown in the final round, won by scores of 115-112 and 116-111 (twice).
Emmanuel Taylor knows he’s the underdog going into his Showtime-televised bout against Adrien Broner at the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio on Saturday but the 23-year-old junior welterweight says he’s prepared to expose the odds favorite’s limitations and pull the upset.
Adrien Broner worked out for his hometown fans in Cincinnati on Wednesday, just three days out from facing Emmanuel Taylor at the US Bank Arena along with Lucas Matthysse, Andre Berto and others.
Adrien Broner, Lucas Matthysse and Andre Berto will appear in separate bouts of a tripleheader on Sept. 6 in Broner’s hometown of Cincinnati.
