Its a massive fight for Adrien Broner and his career who was once regarded as the next big thing. But two devastating defeats in the hands of Shawn Porter and Marcus Maidana has kind of left his career in a limbo. He is still a decent fighter but nothing out of ordinary and you can always expect a fight where he will struggle. Although this Adrien Granados fight might well be the one where he dominate with his superior boxing skills.
Granados is no chump and he is coming into this fight on the back of a historic upset when he defeated highly rated Amir Imam and another win against a top rated fighter will put him right into contention for a big payday. He also looked good both physically, mentally and should give Broner tough time.
