By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

IBF light heavyweight champion Bernard Hopkins, who is also a partner in Golden Boy Promotions, spoke to BoxingScene.com about the controversial antics of WBA welterweight champion Adrien Broner (27-0, 24KOs). Broner has been seen in several videos making controversial comments, flushing money down the toilet and even performing a sex act on a stripper. Sooner or later, says Hopkins, Broner will have to grow up.

"[Mayweather don't throw the money around] no more, because he's grown up. And it wasn't just the 90- days in jail, he got older overnight. He got kids. When he retires, he don't want them doing that with his hard earned money. And then he checks them and they say 'but daddy you were doing that.' That's why when they talk about Broner flushing money down the toilet, you can't tell a man what to do with his money but when you got kids and you give them money and they squander it - and you check them - they said 'daddy I saw you do it.' The seed is only going to follow what the tree does," Hopkins said.

"Golden Boy is not fathers, parents and not even their entourage or the people who are with them [who are] closer. I know its not a good look. I don't even know if the money was real, but lets assume it is. I think its something where you look back, and he will look back on it. We all did something that was dumb and stupid coming up. Some things are so embarrassing that people will never admit to it. I never did anything with money because I had a different way of thinking. With time comes wisdom for most. If you're in this game long enough, you will grow up by force."

What you think is fun to do is subjective. Broner is clearly living the life he wants. Broner is a grown man and as long as he doesn't do anything illegal he can do whatever he wants but most of his actions are quite childish though IMO. Personally I think he's trying way too hard to be funny. H...

[QUOTE=GRboxing]And he still has half a decade on Broner when he "turned his life around" Even then he was still spouting race-based crap and tossing down flags almost a decade after[/QUOTE] To me, BHOP has earned the right to speak his mind about the likes of Broner

[QUOTE=GRboxing]Hopkins went to jail. Lets not act like he is a saint now. The guy is 50 so he shouldnt be getting props for growing up at this age. Still love BHop though[/QUOTE] BHOP didnt "grow up at this age"...he turned his life around 30 years ago.
