Former three-division world champion Adrien Broner (30-1, 22 KOs) makes his next ring appearance going in tough against Shawn Porter (25-1-1, 16 KOs) on Saturday, June 20 at the the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Click here for a preview and prediction of the fight.
“It’s time for AB on NBC and I can’t wait for the opportunity,” Cincinnati-native Broner said. “This is a great fight that the fans wanted and I wanted. I’m going to come prepared and I’m going to put on a show.”
One of the most well-known and polarizing personalities in the sport, 25-year-old Broner holds victories over certified grade-A’ers Paulie Malignaggi, Daniel Ponce de Leon, and Antonio Demarco. Broner enters the June 20 fight coming off unanimous decision wins over John Molina Jr, Emmanuel Taylor, and Carlos Molina.
Broner’s only blemish on his otherwise perfect record came by way of a defeat at the hands of Marcos Maidana in December of 2013.
“I’ve never lost at MGM Grand and I don’t plan on starting now,” Broner Said. “Porter is a strong guy but he’s never been in the ring with someone like me.”
The June 20 Broner-Porter fight will be held at a 144-pound catchweight.
On the undercard: Errol Spence Jr. (16-0, 13 KOs) puts his unblemished record on the line against battle-tested Roberto “La Amenaza” Garcia (37-3, 23 KOs).
