Adrien Broner challenged a reporter to go round with him in the boxing ring during a virtual media event this week.
The soon-to-be 33-year-old is expected to return on August 20, at Hard Rock Live at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, against Omar Figueroa and has aspirations to become world champion again.
During Q&A sessions from various members of the media Broner talks about his excitement to return to boxing and how he refuses to look beyond Figueroa’s challenge.
Then a few questions that annoyed the four-weight world champion began with:
“Adrien you have made so many statements throughout your career and so many milestones and achievements. Do you think there are still a saying or two that Adrien Broner left in the pool of really good memories in the future? And that’s why you persist with this adventure because you have achieved so much? Is it the case for Adrien Broner to have one last stand, one last moment to look back? “
As he lay calmly on the bed, Broner replied:
“Hey man, you talk to me like I’m 65 years old. Do you know who you are talking to? I am AB. You are tripping over.”
The next media member uses the previous question to lead his own question.
“Continue to the question the last guy asked AB. I’m curious if you have an idea in mind how much longer you want to do this? No, you’re not old but you’ve been playing it for a long time and sometimes this sport politically and contentiously can get aggravating. Do you know how much longer you will fight? “
Broner wasn’t too impressed.
“Dude, look. This is what I will tell you to do. You bring your ** out here and try to go around with me. And let’s see if I have some more in the bin. “
And that ended the journalist’s line of questioning.
