Adrien Broner TKO’s Ashley Theophane, Calls Out Floyd Mayeather

Rucuss staffApril 2, 2016

It took nine rounds for Adrien Broner to get the win in the main event of a Premier Boxing Champions card at the DC Armory.

Broner dominated the ninth-round to gain a knockout victory against Ashley Theophane on Friday night. Broner then called out Floyd Mayweather. The retired boxer was ringside when Broner took aim at him.

After Broner won the fight he told the crowd, “I’ve been going through a lot this whole week, and to come in here and bottle everything up and stay focused and get it done; I want to give a pat on the back to myself.”

Broner continued, “Somebody I look up to and somebody I admire talked all bad about me. I don’t know how you all like it. I didn’t like it. I learn s— from physical activity, so me and Floyd, we got a feud. I’m a man, at the end of the day, and I come from the streets, from the bottom. I come from nothing, and I will never let a man disrespect me. He got to come see me. We got to get it on.”

Mayweather just laughed and clapped ringside. Spike announcer Scott Hanson asked Mayweather for his reaction to Broner’s comments after the telecast went off the air. His response was, “I don’t play kid games with Adrien Broner.”

Broner was upset because Mayweather had harsh comments for him, after he called Mayweather’s promotional company “Hateweather Promotions.”

“He said ‘Hateweather Promotions,’ so I’m still trying to find out what the AB stands for. ‘Always Broke?'” Mayweather asked. “We know he ain’t never seen eight figures or nine figures. He has barely ever seen seven figures. It could be safe to say that one of my cars cost more than he made his whole career.”

Broner, 26, is also facing legal troubles. The Cincinnati native has two outstanding warrants for his arrest in his home state of Ohio for felony assault and aggravated robbery in connection to an incident on Jan. 21. He is accused of assaulting a man and robbing him of $12,000 at gunpoint outside a bowling alley.

Broner, who allegedly lost the money to the victim during a night of high-stakes betting on bowling games, allegedly knocked him unconscious outside the bowling alley after a confrontation and took the money.

Broner will return to Cincinnati and turn himself in on Monday. Bail has already been set at $100,000.
