Theophane: Bad Stoppage, Adrien Broner Was Getting Tired

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Four-division world champion Adrien "The Problem" Broner didn't have much of a problem beating and stopping Ashley "The Treasure" Theophane at 1:10 in the ninth round in the main event of tonight's Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) on Spike event in front of a sold out crowd of 8,172 at the DC Armory in Washington, D.C.
 
At 26-years-old, Broner, who lost his 140-pound world title on the scale when he failed to make the bout's weight limit, improved his record to 32-2, 24 KOs. The controversial fighter from Cincinnati, Ohio, displayed his strength and range of skills against a seasoned Theophane, whose record dropped to 39-7-1, 11 KOs.
 
Friday's show was promoted by About Billions Promotions and Mayweather Promotions in association with HeadBangers Promotions.Mayweather Promotions President Floyd "Money" Mayweather sat ringside throughout the evening to pay particular attention to the performances of Mayweather Promotions fighters including Theophane, Gervonta Davis and J'Leon Love, who fought on the undercard.

Theophane was disappointed and didn't agree with the stoppage.
 
"I thought the stoppage was premature because I thought I was in the fight. Me and Broner were going at it. It looked like he was starting to get tired because he started to move around and wasn't able to stay there with me as much.
 
"I thought the fight was back and forth and I think the next four rounds would have been the same. No way should the fight have gotten stopped. It's a shame the referee did that. I was telling the referee, 'I'm okay, I'm okay.' Then he waived it off. I don't know what he was thinking."

Bad fight, bad stoppage. The fight was barely going to start that point. Unfortunate too- it was a lively crowd ready for better action

There was a pretty evident low blow from Broner that should have been ruled as such. The referee should have given Teophane the mandatory up-to-five minutes to recover from the foul. Also, Broner should have been penalized with a one-point…

The stoppage was horrible. For the one thousandth time, I say you have to let fights come to a conclusive ending.

The stoppage was too premature, I agree. And stamina has been one of Broner's problems for far too long. He took 3 of those middle rounds off and let Theophane get back into the fight.

Theophane is a journeyman. Nobody would even know who he was now if he wasn't linked to Mayweather. He's just a glorified journeyman. I think Broner is declining already anyway.
