Adrian Broner v Floyd Mayweather

Must read

Please share!

I know what you’re thinking why am I reading about Floyd Mayweather Junior versus Adrien Broner on this particular site that focuses on politics. The thing is we talk about news in addition to talking about news we also talk about sports and my favorite sport is combat sports.

I have a major issue with people thinking that things should just be given to them. Just by the numbers percentages what real boxing experts think the greatest boxer in the Compu box era is none other than Floyd Mayweather Jr. I don’t even think it’s arguable.

All right with that out of the way Adrien Broner believes that Floyd Mayweather should do an exhibition fight with him because they had a relationship.


Adrien Broner stated this and the Bleacher report also put this in their story


“We can do an exhibition, 10 rounds, and the whole world is gonna watch it and we gonna get in there and go to work,” he explained. “Hug and go in the back and get a bag but at the end of the day, I don’t know what’s his feelings.”


Broner has 40 professional boxing fights on his resume and has won titles in four different weight classes. He is 34-4-1 with one no-contest in his career but has gone just 1-2-1 in his past four bouts.


I think it’s also important to note that Adrien Broner was looked at as possibly being the next Floyd Mayweather. A lot of what I noticed during Adrien’s run was the fact that he didn’t seem to have the same focus as Mayweather, and I will take it a step further and say he also didn’t have the same skill as Floyd Mayweather.

At one point Broner stated publicly that he was not a boxer he was a rapper/entertainer I apologize if I have the title in correct but he did say publicly he was no longer a boxer while he was in his prime.


Broner has also said that Floyd Mayweather doesn’t want to see him with that kind of money. People have forecasted that an exhibition between Broner and Mayweather could exceed $100 million apiece.


A bigger question would be does boxing need an exhibition between Mayweather and Broner I think the answer is a very concise no. Adrien Broner clearly is looking for a payday it’s sad because he had a payday scheduled and he pulled out of the fight he was supposed to be in a few weeks ago against Omar Figueroa Jr.


What boxing needs to continue to do is take the sport all over the globe and I personally want to thank Floyd Mayweather for helping him do that.


Next up for Mayweather is an exhibition against MMA fighter Mikuru Asakura in Japan in September. Full details of the fight, including length of the bout and official rules, have not yet been made public.

An exhibition vs. Broner would go against the type of fighter for Mayweather since his professional retirement. He is educating the world on why boxing is a skill.
