R. Mayweather Rips Broner: Who The F*** Did He Beat?

By Chris Robinson

The boxing world is still buzzing over Marcos Maidana’s upset victory over Adrien Broner this past weekend in San Antonio, Tex.

In front of over 11,000 fans inside of the Alamodome, Maidana fought a spirited and determined fight, as his power had great effect on his younger foe. Knockdowns of Broner were registered in rounds two and eight while several bludgeoning shots were delivered in many of the other frames.

When the dust had settled, Maidana has claimed a unanimous decision victory while Broner was left trying to cope with his first professional setback.

Swinging through the Mayweather Boxing Club in Las Vegas on Monday afternoon, there were several mixed reactions to the fight.

Outspoken former two-division champion Roger Mayweather admittedly didn’t catch the action but seemed intrigued by what transpired.

“I heard he got his *ss whooped,” Roger stated bluntly of Broner. “I haven’t seen it, but I heard.”

On June 25 of this year, a few days after Broner’s split-decision nod over Paulie Malignaggi, Roger was asked if Broner had enough intangibles to be regarded as the future of boxing.

Roger was far from sold back then and is even more skeptical now.

“I can’t even see how they going to say that he’s the next boxing superstar,” Roger stated. “Who the f*** did he beat? That’s why I want to know. Who did he beat?”

The fact that Broner was occasionally compared to Roger’s nephew Floyd, the sport’s best fighter at the moment, seemed to give him an unrealistic platform to reach.

Continuing his criticism, Roger insisted that he knew all along that wasn’t the case.

“He wasn’t what people thought he was,” Roger explained. “They thought he was the next Floyd Mayweather. Now that he got his *ss whooped, people are saying ‘Oh, this motherf***er wasn’t no Floyd.’ I know God damn well he wasn’t.”

[QUOTE=Cupo303;14047778][SIZE="3"]I don't care who you are, you CANNOT compare Broner to Floyd. Even if you think that Floyd cherrypicks, he has cherrypicked enough good to great skilled fighters and proven that his style works on all of them. Broner's career…

[QUOTE=FloydvsPac;14050354]I was no fan of Broner. But, my argument is that Broner did what Floyd never did early in his career and he should get credit for it. At 24, Broner fought in a weightclass he had no business fighting…

TBH the Mayweather camp probably felt insulted when the media played up Broner as 'The Next Mayweather'.
