Broner: Not Going to Sit in Sorrow, I Can Still Party

by David P. Greisman

Adrien Broner had walked out of the ring the moment that Marcos Maidana was announced as the winner — an announcement that meant that Broner had lost his welterweight world title and had suffered his first pro defeat.

At first, he refused an interview in his dressing room, according to publicists working the show. Soon, he said he wanted an immediate rematch.

Later, after he was examined by a physician, Broner was interviewed by Showtime’s Barry Tompkins.

“I’m still young, fly and flashy, and still in the game of boxing,” Broner said.

“I’m not here to make any excuses. I’m in a dangerous sport,” he said. “We’re not going to sit in sorrow. We’re going to live tomorrow like we won the fight. So if anybody wants to come out and be with the three-time world champion — because I can still go on and say I was three-time world champion. I still am a three-time world champion in three different weight classes. I can still live on and say that. I can still party. I can still have fun. My first party is going to be on Tuesday in Cincinnati.

“All I can do is go back to the drawing board, and come back and fight my ass off,” Broner said. “He fought a hell of a fight. I fought a hell of a fight. He was the better man tonight. I’ll fight him my next fight, but right now, we’re going to live like we won the fight. If you want me in your club. I will be in your club.”

He repeatedly plugged a phone number at which people could reach him if they wanted to pay him to be in their club.

“We still going to have fun, like we won the fight,” Broner said.

He was then asked if he was going to remain at welterweight, rather than drop back down to lighter weight classes.

“Listen, you know where I’m going to stay,” Broner said. “I’m going to stay in your club if you call me.”

Broner is a complete idiot. He has mental problems galore.

This fool just doesn't get it. But at least we won't have to hear any more overhyping after he got his ass whooped.

Good. #1 if he wants to go out and party, he's free to do so no one should stop or criticize him for it, it's his life. Do I think it's dumb? Yes. #2 In the end the only person…

Just so we a clear. The reason I stated I am a UK citizen is this. The UK and Argentina are not traditionally 'friends'. We were at war with Argentina in 1982. But I salute Chino for doing the great…
