Mayweather Tried To Warn Broner About Tougher Fights

By Rick Reeno

The pound-for-pound king, Floyd Mayweather Jr. (45-0, 26KOs), explained how he tried to mentor up and coming star Adrien Broner (27-1, 22KOs), who last December suffered his first pro loss against Marcos Maidana. Mayweather will get the opportunity to avenge his friend's defeat, when he faces Maidana in a welterweight unification on May 3rd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Mayweather said he tried to warn Broner about the dangers of not taking a fight more seriously when it involves a higher level of opponent.

"[Maidana] really beat him. He went out there and looked tremendous. He done what he had to do. I don't want to say anything bad about Adrien Broner. But the thing with Adrien Broner is, you got to know when to turn it on and turn it off. I had Adrien Broner sitting at my house and we sat down and I talked to him and tried to teach him things about the sport of boxing," Mayweather said.

"I tried to tell him about certain moves he needs to make in certain fights. And then he asks me a question and I'm telling him or I'm teaching him different moves - he says 'naw big brother, I got it, I got it.' And I said 'listen to me, it's different at this level. The way that you're shining on D-level fighters and C-level fighters, you're not going to be able to do that to A and B-level fighters.

Poor broner...so young and naive. Floyd poisoned his mind by letting broner hang out with him and exposing broner to a irresponsible lifestyle. Now Floyd is claiming he tried to help broner...all he did for broner was be the enabler.
