Broner: I Knew I Had Theophane From The First Round

by David P. Greisman

Adrien Broner had predicted an early knockout of Ashley Theophane. The early knockout didn’t come, but Broner still knew early on that Theophane wouldn’t make it to the final bell.

“He came and do his best. He was definitely tough. He wasn’t giving up, but every time I hit him he made a noise like I was, no homo, like I was sticking it to him,” Broner told reporters afterward. “He definitely came to fight, but he knew from the first round that I was everything they said I was, a problem. After the first round when I hurt him, I came back and I told Floyd [Mayweather, seated at ringside and the promoter of Theophane], I said I’ma stop him. I knew I was going to stop him.”

Theophane was game but didn’t have enough power or speed to trouble Broner. Broner was able to hurt Theophane often.

“We did exactly what we trained on in the gym, and that was a lot of power shots. I perfected it and got him out of there in the ninth round,” Broner said. “I did what I had to do. That’s another knockout on my record. I’m back to knocking people out. That’s two in a row.”

Broner should stop calling an old ex friend out. How about fighting Matthysse?

No ****!. We all knew that. Its why you chose him.

That is just sick. Theophane is D or E level fight and I dont care that Floyd is his manager. Broner should star fighting serious opposition..

Broner is making himself out to be a martyr/hero because he beat an inferior opponent despite knowing that he would be facing charges for a violent felony. Whoop-de-doo. Go do your time, sh#thead. You put yourself in this mess; you…
