Mayweather: Broner a True Champ, I Stand Behind Him!

By Luis Sandoval

The boxing world was in for a surprise as previously undefeated WBA Welterweight champion Adrien  Broner suffered his first professional loss at the hands of hard hitting Argentinean Marcos Maidana this past Saturday night in San Antonio, TX.

Broner was dropped twice in the fight and took a sustained beating from Maidana who was relentless and was able to hurt Broner throughout the contest. This was considered a true test for Broner and even though he showed a lot of heart getting off the canvas and fighting back, he simply was outgunned and clearly lost.

Broner refers to Floyd Mayweather as his big brother and looks up to the reigning pound for pound champion. While Mayweather was attending the 9th Annual Watson Charity Celebrity basketball game, he was asked for his thoughts regarding Broner’s defeat.

“Adrien Broner is a true champion. I love him, I take my hat off to him because it’s crazy how people are. When you’re at the top, everybody wants to ride the wave and be by your side but as soon as you take a loss, everybody wants to talk bad about you. It comes with the territory when you sign up for this. When you’re competing, someone has to win and someone has to lose. But I love Adrien Broner, I want him to keep his head up and I stand behind him” said Mayweather.

Mayweather and Broner have developed a friendship over the last year and Broner even worked out of the Mayweather Boxing  Club for a bit in preparation for one of his fights.
Broner is often compared to Mayweather and was supposed to be the heir to the throne but after his loss Saturday night, we have to see how he’s able to bounce back and if he’s ever to reach Mayweather’s status, he’ll have to do it without an undefeated record.
