Press Release: Adrien Broner vs. Adrian Granados will take place Saturday, February 18th at the Cintas Center at Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio on Showtime. Televised coverage begins with Marcus Browne meeting Thomas Williams Jr. in a ten-round light heavyweight showdown. Also featured will be David Avanesyan battling former 140-pound champion Lamont Peterson with Avanesyan's regular WBA welterweight title at stake. Here is what the participants had to say Thursday from the Cintas Center:


ďI know everyone is used to me coming up here and being boastful. Thatís not me anymore. I have a lot of respect for Adrian Granados and heís a great fighter.

ďA businessman that can fight. Thatís what I am nowadays. Iím not a sh*t talker anymore. Iím a businessman that knows how to fight.
ďMy best knockouts come when I donít go for the knockout. I look at my last fight and think to myself that it was terrible because I was looking for the knockout. I watch the Khabib fight, I didnít look for the knockout and it came. Thatís when the biggest knockouts come. I just want to go in there and put on a great performance for the hometown crowd.

ďI just want to put on a great performance for everyone in Cincinnati. Itís going to be a special atmosphere and I want to give them their moneyís worth.

ďIíve had an amazing training camp and I feel great right now. Iím very thankful to my team who has helped me get to this point in my career.Ē


ďIím excite for this weekend. Iím ready to go. Iíve been through a lot but weíre ready. Iím not here to lay down. Iím here to take home a victory for Chicago and for my people.

ďSaturday Iím expecting a great fight. It is going to be a kill or be killed-type of fight. It is going to be a very exciting night for all of us.
ďPeople that think Iím an underdog donít know me. They donít know the tricks I have up my sleeve. I plan on thriving in the underdog position.
ďIíve watched Adrien fight live on TV and in the arena many times. Spending eight weeks with him [in camp], I think I know him more than most people.
ďI plan on winning in a stoppage or a unanimous decision. No matter what Iím leaving with a victory.Ē

ďItís going to be a great fight. We have a lot of mutual respect. Mixed with my style, I know itís going to be a good fight. I hope everyone is ready for a great show.Ē


ďIím very happy to have this fight in America. This is my second time fighting in the U.S. and Iím looking forward to keeping my belt after fighting Lamont Peterson on Saturday.

ďI am excited to be fighting on a show like this. I hope that if I can get another win I can get even bigger fights and prove that Iím the best.

ďIím ready for this challenge. I know Lamont Peterson is looking to make this a great fight and I hope he brings it in the ring on Saturday.Ē


ďI had a great camp. Iím thankful to my team for getting me ready for this one. We got some great sparring that has me ready for this fight.

ďIím ready to take care of business on Saturday night. Iím looking forward to it and I hope everyone enjoyed it.

ďWe always want to be in good condition. Avanesyan switches from southpaw to orthodox a lot, which is something we had to be prepared for. Weíve sparred with guys from both sides and gotten a lot of good rounds there.

ďHeís a strong fighter too. You know a Russian fighter is going to come in with power. We made sure Iíll be able to match him anytime the fight gets rough. Iíll be ready for anything.

ďI think my speed will give him trouble. Heís been able to handle everything in the past, but that doesnít mean I wonít have advantages. Iím the more experienced fighter and I have the skills to get the win.

ďI feel like Iím going to get him out of there. Iím predicting a late stoppage.Ē


ďTop Dog can say what he wants to say. On Saturday night weíll be Dog Whisperers. Make sure you tune-in for this one.

ďIíve had a great training camp and I feel ready to get in the ring. Saturday night canít come soon enough for me.

ďIím thankful to have this opportunity to fight on a great card like this. Iíve seen guys like Adrien and Lamont in the ring for a lot of years and Iím proud to be up here with them.Ē


ďIím feeling great. It was an awesome camp. Everyone should buy a ticket or watch it on TV. Get there early and donít miss my fight.

ďMarcus is a boxer and I know heís going to try to kick and scratch every now and then. If you let him get comfortable, heís going to get in a zone. My job is to make him uncomfortable and make him do the things that I want him to do.

ďEverybody who knows me, knows what I bring to the table. When I get in the ring you know whatís coming. Saturday night, ĎTop Dogí will reign.Ē

RAVONE LITTLEJOHN, About Billions Promotions:

ďItís finally fight time. Tickets begin at $30 for this great card. Weíre excited to be promoting big events in Adrienís hometown and the great boxing fans here.

ďAdrian Granados is a guy who weíve had in camp with Adrien before. We know what heís capable of and how hard he works. Everyone knows heís coming to bring it.

ďAdrien has done a lot in this sport and he has a lot more left to do. I know heís going to do it, and it starts Saturday night.

ďBoth guys are going to get in that ring and give it their best. Adrien Broner will be victorious, but we like the challenge.Ē
