(Photo credit: Idris Erba/Mayweather Promotions) There is a good deal of anticipation surrounding Saturday’s clash from the MGM Grand Garden Arena that sees Adrien Broner and Shawn Porter headline the latest of Al Haymon’s Premier Boxing Champions cards, with top American welterweight prospect Errol Spence Jr providing chief support against late replacement Phil Lo Greco.

(Photo credit: Idris Erba/Mayweather Promotions) He’s been accused by Shawn Porter of being quiet in the build up to their 144 lb catchweight contest, though at yesterday’s presser ahead of their fight Saturday, Adrien Broner was anything but – and at last seized the opportunity to show us all once again what an arrogant, classless human being he can be.

(Photo credit: Idris Erba/Mayweather Promotions) I think it’s fair to say that it can be especially difficult to like Adrien Broner at times. Be it disrespecting his opponents in the ring, or exuding detestable arrogance outside of it, the thing that has irked me the most with the Ohioan motor-mouth throughout his precocious career is his seeming insistence on lifting large parts of Floyd Mayweather’s in-ring game and failing to adapt them properly to his own. The shoulder roll, would be the most prominent example.

It’s frustrating to watch, as Broner certainly exudes a natural talent of his own – a 3 weight world champ at just 25 years old.
