Broner-Garcia: Final Press Conference (12:30pm ET)

Adrien Broner and Mikey Garcia will host their final press conference before meeting on Saturday at the Barclays Center.

Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

Early this afternoon, starting at 12:30pm ET/9:30am PT, Showtime will be live streaming the final press conference for the Adrien Broner vs. Mikey Garcia card and you can catch it right here on BLH.

The two fighters will meet in a 140lb prizefight this Saturday evening on Showtime, and although there are no belts at stake, it’s still a pretty big fight between two marquee names.

Mikey Garcia will be moving up from the lightweight division to take on a naturally bigger man, but many fans are confident that his skills are more than enough to handle a determined Broner.

Broner, meanwhile, is going to be fighting at 140lb for the first time in a while should he actually make weight — and all indications point to that happening with little problem.

In all reality this fight may well be a be a bigger deal for Broner than Garcia, with Broner having already taken two losses in recent years and not living up to his potential inside the ring. But that’s always been the general point of contention between fans: some believing Broner has already showed the best of what he has to offer, while others think a fully focused and dedicated Broner could achieve more.

We’ll find out this Saturday on Showtime, starting at 9pm ET.
