Broner: Ain’t Got Mark On Me; They Thought They’d F*** Me Up

By Keith Idec

LAS VEGAS – Adrien Broner removed his designer sunglasses for effect late Saturday night.

Broner wanted to show everyone that attended this post-fight press conference that you wouldn’t know he got hurt multiple times by Manny Pacquiao, nor that he lost for the fourth time as a pro about an hour earlier.

“As you can see, I wear these glasses for fashion,” Broner said. “I ain’t got a mark on me. Um, it was a hell of a fight. You know, I give props to Manny Pacquiao. You know what I mean? I ain’t about to get up here and go crazy. I ain’t got to. My performance tonight talked for me.”

Cincinnati’s Broner (33-4-1, 24 KOs, 1 NC) reiterated that he feels he did enough to upset the Philippines’ Pacquiao (61-7-2, 39 KOs) in their 12-round WBA world welterweight title fight at MGM Grand Garden Arena.

All three judges disagreed with Broner based on Pacquiao’s advantages in activity, accuracy and defense.

Tim Cheatham and Glenn Feldman each scored eight of the 12 rounds for Pacquiao (116-112). Dave Moretti credited Pacquiao with winning nine rounds (117-111).

Broner admitted Pacquiao “hurt me a couple times.” He wasn’t willing to concede, though, that the 40-year-old senator from the Philippines beat him.

The 29-year-old Broner suggested his movement and overall strategy troubled Pacquiao.

“They thought I was gonna come in here and be in the mud, and they was just gonna move around me and f*** me up,” Broner said. “And I came and I gave them what they wasn’t looking for. Um, if you ask me, I feel like I won the fight. I’m not about to sit here, with a sad face. You know? I’m all right. I’m all right. … At the end of the day, I’m still AB. I’m the same person. Y’all never seen me fight like this. Y’all never seen me in shape like this. I dedicated myself, I put the work in, and I came and I worked my ass off.”

Broner’s belief in the quality of his performance notwithstanding, the former four-division champion didn’t throw nearly enough punches to make this fight more competitive.

Broner landed only 50 punches overall, an average of just 4.2 per round, according to CompuBox’s unofficial statistics.

CompuBox counted 62 more overall punches for Pacquiao (112-of-568 to 50-of-295). CompuBox credited Pacquiao with more power punches (82-of-197 to 39-of-180) and jabs (30-of-371 to 11-of-115).

I remember this clown calling out Pac years ago only to go and perform like that. Throw him in the bin.

Did he have any marks vs Maidana ?

He's right but he did get hurt by Manny about 2 times in the fight.

"Always Beaten", black-assed Adrien Broner is free to say his thoughts. Let's give him credit for going the distance with Pac if only to comfort him because nobody does. Even his mother at ringside was ashamed of his performance. RIP…
