Calling ‘Pretty Boy’ a ‘big bro,’ Adrien Broner refuses to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Calling “Pretty Boy” a "big bro," WBC lightweight champion “The Problem” Adrien Broner says he will never challenge Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Often compared to the 36-year-old Mayweather (44-0, 26 KOs) due to dominating roughly 300 amateur pugilists, Broner (26-0, 22 KOs) is slated to scrap WBA welterweight titleholder Paulie Malignaggi on Saturday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
Comparatively, Mayweather will throw fists with Saul Alvarez on September 14 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
"My big brother got his legacy, I got mine," said Broner, 23, who eagerly added 12 pounds to meet Malignaggi (32-4, 7 KOs) at 147. "I want to see (Floyd) retire undefeated. I don't want to hand him a loss."
When asked about the potentially huge purse to face Mayweather, the number one lightweight in the world by BoxRec dismissed the value of money.
"It's not about money," claimed Broner, who could pocket roughly $10 million dollars by fighting Mayweather. "I ain't hungry, I'm fine."
In a bruising clash, the reigning pound-for-pound king should ultimately outscore the 22-year-old Alvarez and leave “Sin City” unblemished on Mexican Independence Day weekend.
Somewhat similarly, regardless of any size advantage favoring “The Magic Man,” Broner will knock Malignaggi onto Queer Street within eight lopsided rounds roughly 96 hours from now.
A defensive virtuoso who is one of the premier performers in the annals of prizefighting, it’s hard to envision any man beating Mayweather.
However, although cocky, flamboyant and simply unlikable, Broner has the skills to overtake the five-division, eight-belt capturer.
Unfortunately for boxing fans, Adrien Broner is apparently uninterested in trying to give Floyd Mayweather “a loss.”
