Could Taylor Face Broner In September?

When Baltimore, MD junior welterweight Emmanuel "Tranzformer" Taylor lost to Chris Algeri in February, it turned out Taylor lost out on numerous future opportunities as Algeri was able to parlay that victory into winning the WBO Junior Welterweight title and a million-dollar date with Manny Pacquiao in November.

Now, after his big 10-round unanimous decision win over Karim Mayfield this past Friday in Huntington, NY, Taylor (18-2, 12 KO's) may have set himself up with a big date of his own.

FightHype.com is reporting that a bout is in the works for Taylor to face former three-time world champion Adrian Broner on September 6 in Broner's hometown of Cincinnati, OH.

Broner (28-1, 22 KO's) is coming off a 10-round unanimous decision win over Carlos Molina on May 3 in Las Vegas, NV.

If the bout comes to fruition, Showtime might carry.  However, that is the same night that Andre Berto and Lucas Matthysee return to action at another venue.

We will keep you posted if this bout becomes a reality.
