Via Sam Volz: Adrien ‘The Problem’ Broner apologized to Showtime & Al Haymon earlier today for defamation and dropped out of his virtual press conference on Tuesday to promote his upcoming fight against Omar Figueroa on March 5. August 20.
In an Instagram post today, Broner said he could “wrong ownership” and he was “Locked up for life” with Showtime and Al Haymon. Whether they can keep bringing Broner into the main games for much longer is a big question.
If Broner loses to former WBC lightweight champion Figueroa or if the match doesn’t yield high ratings, chances are we won’t see AB in the headlines anymore. It’s not just trash talk to entice fans.
They wanted to see a win against a quality opponent and we didn’t see Broner beat remarkable opponents since his controversial 12th round decisive win over Paulie Malignaggi in 2013.
Many boxing fans felt that Malignaggi was robbed in that bout, but nonetheless, it was Broner’s final victory over a famous boxer.
So sad, Broner only won six times since his questionable win over Malignaggi 9 years ago, and victories have come before the likes of Jovanie Santiago, Adrian Granados, Ashley Theophane and Khabib Allakhverdiev. In other words, bottom dwellers.
The 32-year-old Broner (34-4-1, 24 KOs), who was earlier in his career as a famous star, has taken issue that he is now out to make meetings virtual instead of actual newspaper inside meeting rooms in hotels in places like Las Vegas, New York, and New Jersey.
Before bailing from yesterday’s virtual press conference, Broner made a surprise mention of Floyd Mayweather Jr, saying he doesn’t need to hold a virtual press conference for his fight against YouTuber Logan Paul in 2021. In other words, Broner is putting himself in the same position as Mayweather, which is completely delusional.
“Men who stand up can make the mistake @showtimeboxing @shosports and AL Haymon that we have locked down for life. # August 20th.
PS I mean all I said. That press conference about a zoom call blew me away,” said Broner above Instagram.
If Broner wants to be included in real press conferences instead of virtual press conferences, he needs to stay in the gym and start winning again because he is no longer fit as a top boxer. top at 140 and 147.
Can’t expect showtime to continue televising Broner’s wars as headlines if he’s up against mediocre opposition because he’s no longer worthy to challenge world titles against anyone. any world champion.
“They don’t do Floyd’s **** on the computer when he fights a Youtuber,” said Broner. They don’t do it to anyone else on the computer but they want to do it to me on the computer, so telling me they won’t say anything about me. So when you say it’s f*** me, it’s f*** ya will. “
