Theophane Not Concerned About Judges in Adrien Broner Fight

by David P. Greisman

Ashley Theophane won’t be the favored fighter when he faces Adrien Broner on April 1 in Washington, D.C., and while he trains out of Las Vegas he will still be a British boxer challenging an American champ.

That doesn’t give him any concerns about the judging, however.

“I think the judges, they will be fair,” Theophane said at a Feb. 29 press conference. “Ishe Smith, he won his title on the right. Badou Jack, he won his title on the road. So I think the judges have been fair to other Mayweather Promotions boxers. I don’t think there will be no issue with the judges. I win the fight, I do believe the judges will give it to me.”

Smith topped Cornelius Bundrage by majority decision in 2013 in a fight in Detroit, where Bundrage is from. Jack also won his title by majority decision, defeating Anthony Dirrell in 2015 in Chicago (Dirrell isn’t from there, but Jack is a Swede who now trains out of Las Vegas).

“A lot of folks expect me to lose,” Theophane said. “I don’t care about that. It’s what I expect from me. I expect me to go out there and be able to beat him. To be here as a 35-year-old man, I’m proud. It’s been hard, but now I know I got here against the odds.”

Brone is finished in boxing after being exposed as an average talent if that. Maidana and Porter both showed Brone is nothing. Good to see that poorly bred uneducated crude rude vile little half pint munchkin exposed as a fraud…
