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?"

Broner said:

"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…
