Former four division world champion Adrien Broner has lashed out at Tim Bradley, who captured world titles at junior welterweight and welterweight.
Broner (33-2, 24 KOs) was offended that Bradley recently named him as a potential "tune-up" opponent for a ring return. Bradley (33-2-1, 13 KOs) has been out of the ring since losing a twelve round decision in his trilogy fight with Manny Pacquiao last April in Las Vegas.
Bradley told reporters over the weekend - "that would be a good tune-up fight for me, Adrien Broner. Why not? That's the question. I think it makes a lot of sense. I think people would like that."
Broner, upon hearing those statements, went wild on social media.
"A Tim Bradley stop playing with me. I will beat yo ass. Bitch ass n*gga talking bout tune-up. N*gga I will tune yo bitch ass up. Stop talking crazy, bald head Uncle Tom ass n*gga," Broner stated.
Broner has been out of the ring since February, when he won a close decision over Adrian Granados.
The last few days Broner has made worldwide headlines after someone following the boxer from a bar in his hometown of Cincinnati and attempted to shoot the boxer, by fired eight shots at Broner's vehicle. When officers responded to the shooting, Broner was arrested on an old warrant.
Broner's last fight took place at the welterweight limit of 147, after the boxer displayed some issues with getting down to the junior welterweight division. Bradley does compete at 147, but his promoter, Bob Arum of Top Rank, has mentioned Broner's name numerous times as a potential fall pay-per-view opponent for Manny Pacquiao, who returns in July against Jeff Horn in Australia.
