We get it, Adrien Broner has a massive potential to become the next Floyd Mayweather. His records show that he has won 27 fights and he hasn’t lost yet. His records also show that out of 27 fights, he won 22 of them by knockout. It’s not bad, for a 140lbs guy. However, there are just a couple of things about him that will definitely annoy you. If you want to know what these are, continue reading this post.
HE’S A TRASH TALKER
Just like Floyd Mayweather, Adrien Broner is also a trash talker. He could be even worse than Floyd. If you have been a fan of Broner, then you probably knew all the issues he had with his opponents before and after his fights. It’s okay to trash talk opponents before the fight but after the fight, it should be over. But in Broner’s case, he had several post-boxing fights with Rees and Maidana. He also waged war on Mathysse on his tweet, dated August 1, of this year.
HE FLUSHED MONEY DOWN THE TOILET
There was a youtube video showing how Adrien Broner throwing his $100 bills on the floor. This was right after he tore and flushed his $20 bills down the toilet. He even said that he doesn’t keep these bills. This video caught many people’s attention. In fact, it gained tons of negative comments like “that money should have gone to the homeless” or “Broner was an idiot for doing that”. Some declared that they’re no longer a Broner’s fans while some were praying that his next opponent should teach him a lesson.
HE PRANKED HIS GIRLFRIEND
There was a time when Broner was being interviewed after he won his fight with Escobedo when he called his girlfriend, Arie Nicole, into the ring. After Arie Nicole was already on the ring, Adrien Broner got down on his knee and asked her “will you… brush my hair?” The next day, Arie Nicole left him after she became the butt of a very public joke. Broner then tweeted “don’t leave me and get mad when I broadcast it lol at the end of the day everybody know me they will eventually forget about you!!!” This tweet gave other people the impression that the joke wasn’t entirely just for show.
These are just three of the annoying things about Adrien Broner. While these can be annoying for some people, others think that they are just tolerable. Mayweather is also a trash talker but the difference between Mayweather and Broner when it comes to trash talking is that Broner does too much of it. Mayweather once said that it’s okay to trash talk before the fight but once the fight is over, they should be humble. This is one thing that Broner isn’t good at.
These may be annoying, but we shouldn’t be judging him because of these. Broner is a great boxer. He is 23 years young and he has so much time to grow. Who knows maybe next year he won’t be as annoying as he is today.
