Broner Vows Theophane Will Come Out Like Bruce Jenner

CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Cincinnati’s Adrien Broner won a world title in his fourth weight division with an impressive 12-round TKO over Khabib Allakhverdiev in front of 5,932 hometown fans at the U.S. Bank Arena and live on SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING®. Broner (30-2, 22 KOs) put his fast hands, thudding power and love of showmanship on display in an exciting performance.

Allakhverdiev (19-2, 9 KOs) took Broner’s best shots without going down, but with an in-shape Broner upping the punishment in the last round, referee Harvey Dock decided to mercifully wave the fight over at 2:23.

Broner looked sharp in his return to the super lightweight division. He landed 50 percent of his power punches, with the right uppercut being his most effective tool.

After the fight was over, Broner called out Ashley Theophane on live television. Theophane is is promoted by Broner's close friend, Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Broner told Mayweather get to Theophane (39-6-1, 11KOs) ready.

"Put Ashley on one of your private jets, bring him to come see me - and I bet I bring the girl out of that boy like Bruce Jenner," Broner said after the fight.

Bronner might know he has been exposed. he has been title hunting and mostly fought flat footed punchers with the exception of Paulie, who was not really a threat to hurt Bronner. Bronner cannot fight guys who can move, he…

Of course, Broner would fight someone Floyd sent. It's just a way for "big bro" to help "lil bro" take an easy way to the top.
