Adrien Broner chokes Emmanuel Taylor at press conference

Adrien Broner is doing what he can to hype up Saturday's Showtime card, going to the ol' "choke your opponent" move at today's final presser.

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Choking! It's a staple of the boxing press conference or weigh-in routine nowadays. When one needs to stir something, namely up trouble, a choke is a really good move. It is always quickly broken up, and nobody really risks injury or anything. So Adrien Broner choked Emmanuel Taylor at today's final press conference, perhaps hoping to inject some life into a rather flaccid fight promotion week.

The best thing is definitely the Corona Girl keeping her dead-eyed staring smile on the whole time:

Professionalism. That's what it is.
