27 Jul Can Broner give Garcia a Problem
He has given himself a number of nicknames. He calls himself “The Problem”, “About Billions”, “About Business” and so many more.
The flamboyant Adrien Broner has used all sorts of terms to describe himself. A moment stands out when he infamously called himself “The Can Man” after he said “Call me the ‘CAN-man’ ‘cause anybody can get some, Mexi-CANs, Afri-CANS, Ameri-CANs, even republi-CANS.”
Broner has given boxing fans quite a lot to think about over the years.
Once hailed as the heir apparent to the legendary Floyd Mayweather, the fighter from Cincinnati, Ohio, has always boasted amazing talent in the ring while staying controversial by his statements and lifestyle outside the ring.
However, unlike Mayweather, Broner’s discipline has not always been perfect. He has had moments when he struggled with making the required weight for his fights while reports about partying excessively while preparing for fights have not made him look good. He has also had a number of run-ins with the law.
He is a former four weight world champion but he is at a point where he needs to beat top world class fighter to be taken seriously in the sport. He has previously lost to Marcos Maidana and Shawn Porter.
He faces a world class fighter in Mikey Garcia in the early hours of Sunday, July 30, at 02:00. The fight is live and exclusive on StarSat channel 241 (Sports Arena).
Garcia is a three-weight division undefeated champion who hails from a family of fighters with his brother and trainer Robert being a former world champion.
Garcia has beaten fighters such as Orlando Salido and Juan Manuel Lopez.
The odds favour the undefeated fighter but Broner claims to be more focused for this fight.
“Everybody knows that when Adrien Broner is focused, on track and does everything correctly, nobody can beat me,” says The Problem.
“I’m tired of coming up short. I’m bringing fireworks.”
Garcia, however, feels that he will have too much for Broner to handle even though the former will be fighting in the super lightweight division for the first time.
“I knocked Zlaticanin out cold when he had never been dropped, so the power will be there regardless of weight,” Garcia said. “It just depends on how well Broner can take a punch.”
“I feel I have a slight edge when it comes to natural boxing skills, technique, ring general-ship, timing and controlling range. I’m working on speed, footwork and reflexes so the weight doesn’t slow me down.”
Will the CAN-man provide Problems for Garcia? Or will the latter stay undefeated?
