This is becoming intense, but it would be better served turning into an actual fight.
He may have missed the fighter's news conference in Washington D.C., but Floyd "Money" Mayweather had a lot to say about Adrien Broner’s tendency to flip the script, per Fight Hype.
Well, my thing is I put Ashley in a position to fight for a world title. I don’t know Ashley’s promoters from the past, but who put him in the position to fight for a world title? I feel like I’ve done my job by putting him in a position to fight for a world title. Adrien Broner, his nickname is “The Problem”. I think he has a lot of problems. Adrien Broner was just an alcoholic six months ago. One thing I’m trying to find out about Adrien broner, is he a boxing promoter, is he a rapper, is he a porn star, or is he a gangster? Like I said before, “The Problem”, that’s what Adrien Broner likes to call himself, if I’m not mistaken. The problem that he really needs to focus on is his problem in Cincinnati. We’re talking about “The Problem”, Adrien Broner. He still got Maidana problems that I had to solve for him. We heard him talking about that he wanted to fight Shawn Porter again. Why, when you lost 11 rounds? You only won the 12th round.
Mayweather wasn’t done there, referring to AB as “Always Broke” while pointing how many times he should have been on the losing end of fights.
Well everybody’s entitled to their opinion. We can’t knock him for that. If we really do our homework, I mean, this company has made crazy money. It’s not always about the money, but a lot of times, with my lifestyle and my persona and everything else, money is always going to come up. He said “Hateweather Promotions”; I’m still trying to find out what AB stands for. Always broke? I mean, that’s what I thought AB stands for. Last year, I think Leonard made more money than Adrien Broner. He gave himself a 10-figure name: About Billions. We know he ain’t never seen 8 figures or 9 figures. He’s barely seen 7 figures. It could be safe to say that just one of my cars costs more than he made in his whole career.FM:
The thing is, this is honestly speaking, I think his first loss, didn’t really come from Maidana. He really lost when he fought Daniel Ponce De Leon. We know he lost to Ponce De Leon. We know he lost to Shawn Porter. We know he got destroyed by Marcos Maidana. He fought Paulie Malignaggi when Paulie was 32 years old, almost 10 years older than he was, and when you look at the fight, you say to yourself, “If Paulie was a few years younger, Paulie would have beat Adrien.” We know that a lot of Adrien Broner’s opponents have been handpicked, and the ones that wasn’t handpicked, he lost or he struggled. Ponce De Leon, he really lost. Shawn Porter, he really lost. Marcos Maidana, he lost. And then with Paulie, Paulie put up a good fight. If it was a few years earlier and you would have put them two in the squared circle, I think Paulie would have won.
You gotta realize, with Mayweather Promotions, we take our time and we build superstars. Mayweather Promotions holds the record for pay-per-view and we know Adrien Broner is a free TV type of fighter. We all know super fights happen on Saturday. I don’t want Adrien to get nothing twisted as far as DC. I commend and take my hat off to everyone in DC. That arena, I truly believe we can have a sellout and I think we do have a sellout. That sellout is not because of Adrien Broner. That sellout is because of that last name and the first name on the promotional company. It’s either Floyd Mayweather or Mayweather Promotions; however you want to write it, that’s the reason why that arena is sold out. If you took me to Cincinnati and I fought in Cincinnati, I’d sell out the state! If you took me to Cincinnati, I couldn’t fight in an arena. I’d have to fight at the baseball stadium and the whole state would show up. You gotta realize this, in Cincinnati, they giving tickets away for him.
