WBC Suspends Adrien Broner Over 'Mexican' Swipe

Statement From The World Boxing Council

Adrien Broner, a former WBC lightweight champion, has offended many people around the world with his words during the interview after his fight with Carlos Molina. [Broner stated, following the May 3rd bout, that he "just beat the f*** out of a Mexican"].
    
The World Boxing Council holds human equality as its banner and will not accept a former WBC champion to make racially offensive statements.

Since words have different meanings and can be interpreted in different ways, the WBC is issuing this open letter to Adrien Broner to either clarify what he meant with his words or to issue a public apology if those words were intended to be disrespectful and offensive .

Adrien Broner is hereby suspended from participating in any WBC sanctioned  championship fights and will be excluded from the WBC Ratings until the time he  makes a public apology satisfactorily to the public of the world.

Boxing is a great sport, it is a world sport and boxers are honorable and exemplary members of the community. Fair play and human equality must always be upheld.

[QUOTE=uniquehump;14526606]I had a big fight party at my house of [B]mostly blacks[/B] who mostly rooted for Mayweather and were entertained by Broner (even those who don't watch boxing on a regular). People, including myself enjoyed his fight and was happy…
