Adrien Broner, Robert Guerrero Go To War on Twitter
By Osman Rodriguez
Lightweight contender Adrien Broner (24-0, 20KOs) and WBC interim-welterweight champion Robert Guererro (30-1-1, 18KOs) went to war on Twitter. The two fighters, both promoted by Golden Boy Promotions, exchanged a series of wild tweets with neither boxer holding back. Broner claims Guerrero provoked the battle, but Guerrero claims Broner called him out in a recent interview.
Some of the items shot by Broner.
"You can't deny talent. Be real with yourself before your pride gets you f***ed up
"Just look at it like this, you beat Vincente [Escobedo] clearly but I STOPPED HIM."
Guerrero came back.
"I dropped him 3 times, you weighed in 3 pounds over [the] weight [limit]! You are a fighter, does 3lbs make a difference?"
"3lbs don't make a difference, that's why I'm willing to jump up 3 weight classes to kick your ass."
"Let's be real, you know I'm the man when I got 147lb guys trying to make a big fight with me cause they can't sell they self."
Then Guerrero Replied:
"I'm not trying to sell nothing! Didn't you call me, Marquez, and Pacman out? You called the big boys out, I'm not letting it happen!
"Jump up 2 weight classes & beat the #1 contender! You're a good lil fighter coming up, but you are a rookie!"
"Move up to 147 where I'm at now! The big boys and let's lock & load! You're 10 fights young & 5 titles away!"

This fight would be pretty competitive. A toss up fight at this point. Guerrero barely leapfrogged to 147 himself so he wouldn't have a size advantage. He has more experience but Broner has alot of boxing ability. This fight makes…Post a Comment - View More User Comments (83)
