Broner: When I Lost, People Thought Mayweather Lost

Below are excerpts from Adrien Broner’s Showtime televised interview with Brian Kenny:

Regarding his first loss last December to Marcos Maidana…

“That’s not the first time I took defeat. It might not be the last time.  But God has got something in store for me.  I am set for a major comeback.

“Maidana did what he was supposed to do.  He threw big shots.  I was in a hell of a fight.  It comes with the territory.  That’s boxing.  Sometimes you don’t get hit, but sometimes you do.  It’s not about that.  It’s about how you get up.  And I got up and fought to the last.”

Regarding his corner and team’s concern mid-fight…

“It was the first experience for all of us.  It was the first time we were in that situation and we handled it well.   At end of day, we are ready to get back in there and, hopefully, we get Maidana again.

“What I need to tell everybody that isn’t inside that circle is that sometimes you get hit with shots you just don’t see.  But we are going back to camp and we are ready for a rematch.  If we could have fought him on Sunday we would have.

On a rematch with Maidana…

“Of course.  I am a fighter.  I have to fight him or everyone will say, ‘Oh, but he lost to Maidana.’  I am the closest thing to Floyd Mayweather.  So when I lost people thought that Floyd lost.”

On his exit after the fight…

“I have to say I am sorry to my fans for walking out of the ring.  I was very emotional.  Like I said, it was my first time in that situation.  I am sorry to my fans.  And I am looking forward to the rematch.

“At the end of the day, I like putting on a show, losing or not.  I still like to put on a show.  And everyone knows when you watch me, you are going to see me put on a hell of a show.  This is the best thing that happened in my career because now I see who’s with me and who isn’t. This made me see a lot of things.  One thing for sure, I always got family.  I always love them and they love me.”

[QUOTE=budfr;14172817]It is not he posters, Floyd himself knew it. He sh1t on his pants when Margarito challenged him in person. He stuttered, and remained seated like a coward while being challenged. And pacman? we know he would beat floyd so…

He's not the closest thing to Floyd but a lot of fans who can't stand Floyd loved to see Broner lose and was acting like Maidana just gave us the blueprint how to beat Floyd....so he's 50% right.

[QUOTE=BennyBlanco;14173538]Agree 100%. That was definitely a more humble Broner than we've seen the past. He APOLOGIZED to the fans without prompting. Give him a break.[/QUOTE] :grumpy:.........
