Adrien Broner: B*tch-Ass Thurman Said I’m Not AB; We See That!

By Keith Idec

BALTIMORE – Adrien Broner obviously took offense to Keith Thurman’s comments about him before Thurman lost to Manny Pacquiao.

Thurman repeatedly reminded reporters and fans “I’m not AB” in reference to Broner, who lost a lopsided decision in Pacquiao’s previous 12-round fight January 19 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Well aware of Thurman’s comments, Broner criticized Thurman late Saturday night, following Gervonta Davis’ second-round stoppage of Ricardo Nunez at Royal Farms Arena in Davis’ hometown.

“He got cooked,” Broner told FightHype.com. “Y’all tryin’ to make excuses for that bitch-ass n*gga. Talkin’ about, ‘I’m not AB. I’m not AB.’ We see that. We see. We see.”

The Pacquiao-Thurman match was more competitive than the Pacquiao-Broner bout, but Pacquiao knocked down Thurman late in the first round and hurt him badly with a body shot in the middle of the 10th round. The smaller, significantly older Pacquiao also badly bloodied Thurman’s nose in the fifth round.

The Philippines’ Pacquiao appeared to buzz Broner in the seventh and ninth rounds of their 12-rounder. Broner absorbed far less punishment in their fight, though, than Thurman took July 20 at MGM Grand Garden Arena.

“Because he couldn’t hit me,” Broner said. “He hit me three times clear, clean. Other than that, the crowd was just roaring. That’s why he – see, after my fight, people don’t know after my fight [with Pacquiao], I tore his retina. I tore his retina. He ain’t do sh*t to me. I left out the fight looking like this [takes off glasses], ready to go to the club.”

The 40-year-old Pacquiao (62-7-2, 39 KOs) didn’t disclose any damage done to either retina after he beat Broner. Six months later, Thurman’s performance didn’t impress Broner (33-4-1, 24 KOs, 1 NC), a former four-division champion from Cincinnati.

When asked if he would give Thurman (29-1, 22 KOs, 1 NC) credit at least for surviving that first-round knockout and testing Pacquiao thereafter, Broner said, “Man, I told y’all I don’t do credit. I got cash, bro. OK? I don’t do credit.”

When informed that Thurman might’ve sustained a rib injury in training that he didn’t disclose before opposing Pacquiao, Broner didn’t buy it.

“Man, I don’t wanna hear that sh*t,” Broner said. “It’s always an injury.”
