It looks like Adrien Broner is indeed heading to The Queen City for his next bout. Sources close to the situation have informed us that U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio has been approached to stage the three-division world champion's anticipated September 6 return to the ring. Although Broner's opponent has yet to be finalized, we're told that the card will feature several other up-and-coming Cincinnati fighters, including bantamweight Rau'Shee Warren and lightweight Robert Easter.
Broner last fought in Cincinnati two years ago, scoring a 5th round TKO against Vicente Escobedo in July of 2012. Former welterweight champion Andre Berto and hard-hitting jr. welterweight Lucas Matthysse are also expected to make their return to the ring on September 6, but it's unclear if either will be on Broner's card or fighting in a different venue. That being said, one should not be surprised to see Showtime broadcast a split-venue show on that night.
