CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Cincinnati native and former four-division world champion Adrien Broner (32-2, 24 KOs) will return to his hometown to battle Adrian Granados (18-4-2, 12 KOs) in February.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. joined Broner Tuesday to announce the fight that will take place on Saturday, February 18 at the Cintas Center on Xavier University's campus.
Broner will be making his return to the ring for the first time since April 2016 when he defeated Ashley Theophane by TKO in the 9th round in Washington D.C.
Broner was stripped of his Welterweight World Title just days before the fight for failing to make weight, but he paid Theophane so that the fight could go on.
Since that fight in April, Broner has been in and out of court for charges that include felonious assault and criminal robbery.
The last time Broner fought in Cincinnati was in October 2015 when he defeated Khabib Allakhverdiev in the 12th round by TKO.
Tickets for the live event are on sale now and priced at $250, $100, $75, $50 and $30.
The February fight is schedule to be air live on Showtime.
