Big-mouth Broner aims to do more than talk against Garcia
NEW YORK — Adrien Broner unleashed a profanity-filled tirade against his opponent in the ring and his doubters outside it, proving he remains one of boxing’s biggest mouths.
What he is beyond that might depend on what happens Saturday.
Broner has another chance — maybe his last one — to demonstrate he’s a worthy headliner capable of beating boxing’s best. But he has to get by undefeated Mikey Garcia, who is moving up in weight for their 140-pound bout in Brooklyn.
He insists he’ll be ready, leaving his antics behind for a serious side he believes will bring back one of his vintage performances.
“I just know I’ll be ready Saturday night,” Broner said Thursday.
