This has been going back and forth for a week or so, but it does indeed look like Baltimore, MD junior welterweight Emanuel "Tranzformer" Taylor will indeed get an opportunity to face former three-time world champion Adrian "The Problem" Broner. The bout will take place on a Golden Boy Promotions card on Saturday, September 6 at the US Bank Arena in Broner's hometown of Cincinnati, OH.
The scheduled 12-round bout will be part of a tripleheader that will include contests featuring Lucas Matthysse and Andre Berto. Showtime will televise.
Golden Boy Promotions President Oscar De La Hoya said Taylor will be a test for Broner.
"Emanuel Taylor is no easy test for Broner," said De La Hoya. "He's fast and talented. This is a life-changing fight for him, which makes him particularly dangerous."
