Adrien Broner and Mikey Garcia host their opening press conference today.
Today, starting at 11:30am ET, Showtime Sports will live stream the opening press conference for Adrien Broner vs. Mikey Garcia, scheduled for Saturday, July 29th. In this fight Adrien Broner will be attempting to move back down to 140lbs after struggling to hit that mark in recent fights.
Mikey Garcia, conversely, will be moving back up in weight after capturing a world title at lightweight. For him this fight is an opportunity to fight a big name in a big fight on a big network.
Looking ahead, many fans seriously question whether or not Broner will actually make weight for this fight, but he’s been back to his old training habits in Colorado Springs where says that he’ll be just fine.

Broner will have his hands full when fight time comes around, though. Mikey Garcia was viewed as top pound-for-pound talent before promotional issues had him on the shelf for a couple years. But even then Garcia has kept himself in the gym and has a reputation for maintaining steadfast professionalism in his fight preparations, unlike, say, Broner.
But if Broner comes into this fight in good shape, then we might really have a good fight on our hands. Tune in here at 11:30am to check out what both camps have to say leading into this prizefight.
