It’s a tough day in the office when the mayor of Washington D.C. is in the crowd laughing at you.
Professional boxer Adrien Broner let his mouth get him in the trouble once again, but this time it’s likely more embarrassing for him than anyone else.
Broner attempted to try to lure Floyd Mayweather Jr. back into the ring after spotting him in the crowd at his recent match against Ashley Theophane. Broner knocked out Theophane in the 9th round, and perhaps his adrenaline got to his head when he decided to call out Mayweather and challenge the undefeated, retired boxer following the match.
"Somebody I look up to and somebody I admire talked all bad about me," said Broner in an interview, talking about Mayweather’s recent negativity towards him. "I don't know how you all look at it. I didn't like it. I wasn’t going to do this but I’m a man that learns s**t from physical activity, so me and Floyd, he’s gotta see me."
"I'm a man at the end of the day, and I come from the streets, the trenches, man,” Broner continued. “I will never let a man disrespect me. So he gotta see me. I don't care if we spar or we fight. Let's get it on."
The crowd roared back with boos, laughter and other remarks, perhaps in hopes to drone him out from running his mouth anymore.
As reported, Mayweather later responded to the post-match comments shutting down Broner completely saying, "I don't play kid games with Adrien Broner."
The L’s keep stacking up for Broner but at least on Friday (April 1) he was able to channel some of that frustration into beating Theophane.
