Roger Mayweather works with Adrien Broner in Las Vegas

By Chris Robinson

As reported by HustleBoss.com/BoxingScene.com recently, Cincinnati-based trainer Mike Stafford is entertaining the idea of training his core group of fighters, which includes three-division world champion Adrien Broner, temporarily in Las Vegas within the coming weeks.

Stafford will arrive to Vegas next week, as two of his fighters, Jamel Herring and Robert Easter Jr., were lined up with bouts at the MGM Grand on Sept. 12. It actually turns out that Broner is already in the city, as he was spotted getting a workout inside of the Mayweather Boxing Club on Tuesday afternoon.

Broner’s regimen wasn’t particularly grueling on this day, but it was interesting to see him on the pads with former heavyweight contender Nate Jones and later with Roger Mayweather.

Working together for the first time, Mayweather and Broner paced their routine on the mitts, with Roger giving pointers along the way.

Following Broner’s workout, I asked Roger what he thought of his time guiding the young champion.

“Like working with anybody else,” Roger said. “The thing about it is, I thought [he] was small. He’s bigger than I thought he was. He aint that small.

“My thing is to keep his hands moving, keep his head moving, and box,” Roger later added.

Broner moved up two divisions from the lightweight class in his last bout when he captured the WBA welterweight crown from Paulie Malignaggi with a split-decision victory in Brooklyn this past June.

He appears to now be lined up with another pivotal clash, this one with Argentinean power-puncher Marcos Maidana on Nov. 9.

While Broner has maintained that he can still make the lightweight limit if need be, Roger insists he could see him growing into a full-fledged welterweight in due time.

“Easy, easy, easy,” Roger responded.

Never one to be smitten by your average prizefighter, Roger paid Broner some definite respect when asked if the 24-year old could serve as one of the ambassadors of the sport in the coming years.

“I’m sure,” Roger replied. “He’s a well-schooled kid.”

I hate to say it, but Roger or Floyd Sr. is going to steal Broner from his trainer mark my words.
