Floyd Mayweather: I Won’t Bash Adrien Broner

by David P. Greisman

Floyd Mayweather Jr. promotes Ashley Theophane, the junior welterweight who will face titleholder Adrien Broner on April 1 on Spike TV from the D.C. Armory in Washington, D.C. Broner, who considers Mayweather a friend, said at a Feb. 29 press conference that for now Mayweather was an enemy because he wanted Broner to lose.

Mayweather, speaking afterward, declined to retort.

“Remember when Adrien Broner lost to [Marcos] Maidana, I was the first one there that was having his back and I was a shoulder for him to cry on,” Mayweather told reporters. “Am I going to bash Adrien Broner or say anything bad about him? Absolutely not.”

During the press conference, Mayweather had kind words for Broner.

“Adrien, very explosive, very young, very agile. Hes a force in boxing right now,” Mayweather said at on point. Soon, he said: “Adrien, I commend you on giving Ashley a chance to make his dream come true. You’ve been a very exciting fighter in the sport of boxing. And I truly believe you’re going to continue to go out there and put on exciting fights, put on a good shot. You’re still learning. Everything’s a learning process. Obviously I know you got the music thing going on, which is another great avenue for you.”

A shoulder to cry on and music being another great avenue for him are both subtle disses lmao

[QUOTE=kafkod;16505918]Nah, don't bash Broner, that's no fun at all. Bash Golovkin again and tell us about how easily you would have beaten him. It makes me laugh when you do that.[/QUOTE] so saying he would beat someone is bashing now?…

If Broner beats Theopane, Mayweather will come out of retirement to avenge him :lol1: Anyone know why Floyd is so confident in Theo? Is it false confidence, is Floyd just trying to build a UK brand and he has to…
