Broner Rips Gamboa, Marquez Over Alleged PED Use

By Mitch Abramson

In addition to belittling tonight's opponent Gavin Rees, WBC lightweight champion Adrien Broner took another page from Floyd Mayweather by accusing a number of fighters of using performance enhancing drugs. Broner blasted Yuriorkis Gamboa for using PEDs, even though Gamboa has never failed a drug test.

Gamboa, the former Cuban gold medalist, was recently linked to an anti-aging clinic in Miami that allegedly doled out PEDs, along with a number of other high-profile baseball players. His name showed up on a list, but no evidence has surfaced that he actually consumed the stuff. But Broner still accused Gamboa of being a user. 

He didn’t stop there. Broner also mentioned Juan Manuel Marquez as a possible opponent, perhaps before the end of the year, but only if Marquez submits to drug testing so “he wouldn’t come in looking like LT, looking like a linebacker. You’ve seen it.”

Still, Broner listed Marquez as a potential PPV-opponent down the road, along with Robert Guerrero, Brandon Rios and Manny Pacquiao. But not Danny Garcia, since they both share the same promoter and manager. “I like Danny Garcia,” Broner said. 

Gamboa was previously mentioned as a possible fight for Broner, but Broner criticized that idea because of the limited ways that fight would be promoted.

“He really doesn’t speak English,” Broner said of Gamboa. “He’s on PEDs. He’s just messing up. He tastes the canvas every fight. I mean, be serious, if me and Gamboa ever fight, I knock him out and then everyone is like, ‘Oh, he was supposed to do it, he was bigger, stronger.’ Then they fall back on that. So at the end of the day- I keep doing me.”

Broner said that PEDs is a “helluva problem when you got guys like me, wake up every morning, run six to eight miles a day, sacrificing, eating right. All natural. Then for you to put something in your body to make you elite. That’s [messing] the game up. I don’t even take vitamins.”

Broner said he did blood testing in the bout with DeMarco in November of last year and would like to do testing for every fight, but he admitted that blood testing wasn’t done for this one with Rees.

“I think it helps it keeps the game clean,” Broner said. “I don’t’ care. Stick me with a needle. I stick people with jabs.”

Marquez beats Broner..too much experience.. Marquez would get hit early but then start timing and picking Broner apart...seems like Broner is vulnerable to overhand rights as well...

You guys are just complete idiots. The guy is nothing like mayweather. He uses the ****ing shoulder roll and doesn't do it as well. That's it. Just because he's black a good boxer and talks lots of **** doesn't mean…
