The Mikey Garcia camp has been a bit different for Adrien Broner as you can see from the above, but what kind of Broner will turn up?
The two throw down tonight in New York and both made the weight comfortably last night at the first time of trying.
Broner looked in good condition and seemed to be in a decent place mentally in the post-weigh in interview on Showtime.
It’s one of those fights that if Adrien Broner turns up, could go either way.
The WBC diamond belt will be on the line.
It will also offer Broner the chance to put behind him an under par performance last time out against Adrian Granados earlier this year in his home State of Ohio.
Broner celebrated his birthday yesterday on weigh-in day, turning 28.
A mature performance in the ring will be what’s needed tonight as he’ll need to keep cool and use his boxing IQ when the dynamite fists of Garcia start flying at him.
When Broner has been at his best in the past, it’s been when he’s stuck to his boxing skills and remained clever in the ring, picking his spots at the right time to defend or attack.
Garcia will test him to his limits tonight and the bookmakers consequently are making Garcia a warm favorite at 2/5 coming into the fight.
Broner has promised to be more ‘serious’ tonight – he’ll need to be.
