|TALE OF THE TAPE|
|Adrien “The Problem” Broner||Khabib Allakhverdiev|
|Record||30-2 22 KOs||19-1 9 KOs|
|Hometown||Cincinnati, OH||Derbent, Russia|
This might be one of the toughest fight of Khabib Allakhverdiev’s professional career this Saturday, Oct 3rd. Khabib will have to travel to the hometown of Adrien “The Problem” Broner in Cincinnati, Ohio and try to upset a fighter who is still upset from his previous loss to Shawn Porter. Good Luck with that one.
“I expect Broner to try to play his game, but we will play our game.” said Khabib. “The experience I gained after losing the title in my last fight [against Jesse Vargas] is that I really understand the opportunity that I am being given going into this fight. “I am not worried about fighting in Broner’s hometown. I have fought many fighters in their own cities and it doesn’t bother me. “On Saturday night, I will show the fans a great fight and come out with the victory.”
Khabib is the taller fighter of the two, but the overall speed, power, and boxing ability of Adrien Broner will be too much for the former champion out of Russia. Look for Broner to stay aggressive in this fight in hopes to get an impressive victory against Khabib. Adrien will easily win this fight in the distance by unanimous decision, although Allakhverdiev will put up a good effort throughout this championship matchup.
