Team Molina Furious With Broner's "Mexican Comment"

By Rick Reeno

MGM Grand, Las Vegas - Frank Espinoza, manager of Carlos Molina, tells BoxingScene.com that his entire team was offended by Adrien Broner's post-fight interview from Saturday night. The fight, which took place as part of the Mayweather-Maidana Showtime Pay-Per-View, saw Broner win a ten round unanimous decision.

After his victory, Broner generated a frenzy from the crowd with his post-fight comments.

Speaking to Showtime's Jim Gray in the ring, Broner stated - "I've beaten Africans and I just beat the f*** out of a Mexican."

Gray quickly told Broner to show some "class and dignity."

Espinoza stated to BoxingScene.com - "To make a comment like that on Cinco De Mayo weekend, in a venue where thousands of Mexican fans paid money to watch the fight - was an absolute disgrace. If the shoe was on the other foot and Carlos made a comment about beating the f*** out of a black fighter - the reporters and fans would go crazy. If this was the NBA or the NFL, this guy would have been fined and suspended for making that type of remark."

Golden Boy Promotions CEO, Richard Schaefer, is also not happy with Broner's post-fight statement and plans to have a serious conversation with the boxer regarding his excessive use of profanity during media functions. Schaefer also wants IBF/WBA 175-pound champion Bernard Hopkins, who is also a Golden Boy partner, to speak with Broner.

Broner has quite a history with making controversial statements and doing controversial antics - like his video of ripping up $20 dollar bills and flushing them down the toilet.

"Sometimes [Broner] says stuff without really thinking, because as I came out into the ring the first thing he said to me was 'I'm so sorry that I said what I said.' He's a young guy and I'm going to keep trying to explain to him, and maybe somebody like Bernard who has the experience would certainly be a great coach in that regard. He's a great guy with a great personality and rubs a lot of people the wrong way. I think there is certainly a line and I believe it has been crossed [by Broner]," Schaefer said.

Silly decision, clearly not racist.

[QUOTE=sterilizer;14516565]Broner said "I just beat the f*** out of a Mexican" But he should have said "I just beat the f*** out of a Mexican cab driver". Let's see him do the same with a real high-level Mexican fighter, like…

[QUOTE=Fangedgrowl;14514282]Why doesn't everybody just shut up and agree that there are racist in every race. Really Broner is an ignorant fool. No education. Let him talk, cause he already got his butt kicked once. He needs to quit trying to…
