Broner-Taylor presser heats up in Cincinnati
- Updated: September 4, 2014
Adrien Broner and Emanuel Taylor were on hand earlier today at their final press conference in Cincinnati, Ohio to promote their Sep. 6 junior welterweight bout, which will be televised on Showtime.
“I really don’t know how to say it. I could say it in English, I could say it in Bronish – I’m just going to kick your ass! declared Broner towards Taylor.
“You know you’re not going to win. He’s not coming to win; he’s just coming to not get stopped. I’m going to stop this guy. He’s shaking right now. He already knows what’s up.”
Broner also made it a point to call out Lucas Matthysse, who will be in action on the card against Roberto Ortiz.
“This isn’t a joke. There should be three winners on Saturday: two ABs (Adrien Broner and Andre Berto) and then my next opponent, Lucas Matthysse. That’s what’s happening,” proclaimed Broner.
During their posedown, Broner attempted to choke Taylor, before a skirmish broke out.
“For the record, Broner – you’re not knocking me out. I’m not going to let a 135-pound fighter who’s been fighting midgets his whole career knock me out. It’s not happening,” said Taylor.
“I’m not going to let anyone disrespect me. He’s all talk. I don’t really do much talking, but I have to stand up for myself and go back at him. I’m going to do what I have to do.”
Broner is coming off of a win over Carlos Molina, following his first pro loss to Marcos Maidana at welterweight.
“I’ve been motivated to knock him [Taylor] out since this fight was announced. I’m at home, this is my homecoming. This is what I do at home,” said Broner.
