Broner: I’ll put on a show

Adrien Broner has vowed “to put on a show” against Mikey Garcia and insisted he does not care about being dubbed as the underdog ahead of their New York clash.

'The Problem' (33-2 KO24) is preparing to take on the unbeaten Garcia (36-0 KO30) in a super-lightweight bout at the Barclays Center on July 30.

Broner – a four-weight world champion – also insisted he will have no trouble making the 140-pound limit, despite having missed weight for a previous fight against Britain's Ashley Theophane.

A clause in the fight contract means Broner would be fined $500 000 if he fails to make weight.

"I feel great," Broner said. "I weighed in at 144 pounds this morning and I could make weight tomorrow if I wanted to.

"Now I've got a reason to make 140. Plus, I am not giving nobody a half-a-million dollars. But I'm just cruising, man. I'm just ready to put on a show.

"I don't care about being an underdog. I don't make my money off that."
