Probably three of the top ten draws in boxing right now, today’s event featuring Adrien Broner, Floyd Mayweather and Amir Khan is one to relish.

Granted, real boxing fans know that the headline clash between Mayweather and Marcos Maidana is about as one-sided a bout as ‘Money’ has been in for a long time. However, a chance to also witness Broner back to his spectacular best and Khan in a real 50/50 bout makes this a special card.

Also featuring will be some of Mayweather Promotions’ best prospects as well as another UK Olympic medalist that Golden Boy Promotions are hoping to turn into the next Amir Khan. With such a stacked show it can be hard to get your head around all that is on offer, so here is a breakdown of all the goings on involved in The Moment.

ADRIEN “THE PROBLEM” BRONER, Former Three-Division World Champion

“At the end of the day, everybody is looking for Adrien Broner to be this new humble guy. Well, if you’re looking for Adrien Broner to be this new humble guy, you won’t get it. I’m still the same fresh, flashy, young, rich and famous guy. I’m a young man, and I respect every fighter, but I’m ready to fight.

“Molina is a hell of a fighter. Like I said, I don’t disrespect any boxer. It takes a lot to get inside that square circle and I don’t take any boxer lightly. I just want him to be on his A-game May 3.

“Anybody taking a loss that I did, it would probably break them. But coming from where I come from, I’m strong mentally and physically so I’m OK. I’m personally proud of myself and I don’t care that a lot of people are looking for me to just go in here and walk over this guy, but at the end of the day they’re forgetting that he’s not just somebody to walk over, he’s a top-class fighter.

Broner will have a lot of eyes on him for Molina fight, says Bernstein

Broner vs. Molina - Boxing analyst Al Bernstein thinks Adrien Broner (27-1, 22 KO’s) will be under the microscope in his next fight against Carlos Molina (17-1-1, 7 KO’s) on May 3rd on the undercard of the Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Marcos Maidana next month.

Fans and the boxing media will want to see if Broner is the same fighter he was before the loss.

Former three division world champion Adrien Broner (27-1, 22 KO’s) will be in action on May 3rd against former Amir Khan victim Carlos Molina in a scheduled 10 round bout on Showtime pay per view. Broner says he’s got his mind focused on that fight, but he apparently is also targeting a 4th division world title in the light welterweight division.

Broner is interested in going after the WBC or WBA titles that will likely be vacated soon when Danny Garcia moves up in weight to the 147lb division.

“At the end of the day I’m going to do what will make Adrien Broner happy,” Broner said. “I’ll showcase my talents, speed and power on May 3. It’s not a problem at all for me [moving down to 140]. It is my natural weight class. We know that a world title at 140lbs is on the way, but I’ve got to take it one step at a time.”
