Broner vs Granados Headlines Showtime Feb 18 – This Saturday, February 18th sees the Cintas Center in Cincinnati, Ohio hosting a ten fight boxing card that will see the main events air on Showtime in the United States.
The 12-round main event sees Cincinnati native and former four weight class world titlist Adrien Broner returning to take on Chicago’s gritty Adrian Granados. David Avenesyan (22-1-1) is looking to upgrade his interim WBA world title to a “full” world title belt as he takes on veteran Lamont Peterson (34-3-1) in a second 12-round bout.
For Ohio boxing, February has been a landmark month as last weekend saw Toledo host two world title fights that saw Adrien Broner serving as the promoter. Broner is hoping to get off 2017 on a bright note as 2016 has to go down as a bad year for the 27 year old. Broner fought just once in 2016 — and he struggled with his weight for that fight — and he spent part of 2016 dealing with legal issues, this time from an assault case at an Ohio bowling alley. Broner has stated that he feels more mature and he is ready to focus only on boxing. He will be tested by Granados come Saturday night.
