Adrien Broner (29-1, 22 KOs) scored a 12th round knockdown in the process of defeating Emmanuel Taylor (18-3, 12 KOs) by a 12 round unanimous decision in his hometown at the U.S Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Taylor was having a good round in the 12th until Broner connected with a left hand to the head that dropped Taylor on his backside on the canvas in the last 15 seconds of the round. Taylor got back to his feet and the fight ended several seconds later. It was a close affair with both guys taking turns landing big shots.
Like in his fight against Marcos Maidana, Broner spent a lot of time on the ropes covering up and trying to land counter shots. This enabled Taylor to tee off on him in many of the rounds. Broner’s defense was sound even when he was backed up against the ropes, but it still didn’t look good with him backed up like that. Continue reading

The Showtime tripleheader’s first bout will be between Andre Berto and Steve Upsher Chambers.
In his last fight Adrien Broner was unspectacular, ho-humming his way to a decision versus Carlos Molina. Many fans craved for Broner to face a top flight junior welterweight. Instead he will face Emmanuel Taylor, who is fresh off his best victory over Karim Mayfield.
As Broner’s star began to rise many media members and followers of the sweet science overrated him. His close points win against Ponce De Leon was chalked up as a learning experience. Continue reading

Just a few minutes later, he put his arms around the throat of his opponent on Saturday, Emanuel Taylor, while facing off for media in attendance.
In other words, typical Adrien Broner. Continue reading

Broner, #3 WBA, #3 WBC, is working his way into position to fight for a world title against one of the belt holders.

If former three division world champion Adrien Broner (28-1, 22 KOs) wants to have a successful career then he’s going to need to dedicate himself fully to the sport of boxing, says former middleweight world title challenger Gabriel Rosado.
Rosado believes that Broner is spending too much partying and touring and not enough time in the gym training at his craft. Rosado likes the heart that Broner showed against Marcos Maidana last December in taking a beating and getting up from two knockdowns, but he still thinks that Broner isn’t putting everything he has in his career.
