ADRIEN "THE PROBLEM" BRONER WASHINGTON, D.C. MEDIA WORKOUT QUOTES & PHOTOS

ADRIEN BRONER, Former Three-Division World Champion

"This fight is huge for me. Everyone wants to see what Adrien Broner is going to do next after this devastating loss I took in the early part of my career. I know why everyone has their eyes glued to me.

"Floyd is going to do what he's always done, stay on top and get a victory. Everyone one knows what I'm going to do in my comeback fight.

"Being on this undercard means a lot it mean a lot. It means a lot to know I play a big part in boxing. It is great to be on this card.

"In this era, you can't talk about boxing without bringing up Adrien Broner.

"I've been training my ass off. You never know what you're going to come in here and do. A lot of fighters have repetitive workouts. In our camp here, [at the Bald Eagle Recreation Center in Washington, D.C.] you never know what you're going to do day in and day out. I come prepared and train my ass off.

"I am the CEO of Band Camp. It's a positive movement with music and boxing. Everyone has a role and we are moving up.

"This is my first fight on pay-per-view and after my performance on May 3rd you will be seeing me on pay-per-view more often so get used to this.

"Carlos Molina is a hell of a fighter and he is going to come to fight. He's going to come to kick my ass because I'm sure as hell going to come to kick his.

"I'm trying to have some fun. I will be pretty, fresh, fly and still flashy.

"People want to know if the loss [against Marcos Maidana] has humbled me and of course it has. If I would have won that Maidana fight people would be calling me an asshole. People still call me that, but now I thank God that he slowed me down in my tracks even though it is still a heavy and fast train. Right now, Denzel Washington couldn't stop this train.

"People will always have their opinions on how hard you trained, especially when they only see you on fight night. Boxing is all hard work. I don't care what level you're on.

"I talk to Floyd all the time, he's a big brother and a mentor. Why not fight on his undercard? I'm helping him and he's helping me. It's a lovely thing, who would have ever thought we'd be fighting on the same card?

"You never know what to expect from an opponent until you hit that ring, but I can tell you that I will be victorious and it will be in a spectacular way.

"'THE MOMENT' is one of the biggest fights in boxing history and why not pay back my big brother and fight on his card?

"When Floyd beats Maidana, it is going to be the same as the other opponents who have lost. It would still be a big fight for me to fight Maidana."

MIKE STAFFORD, Broner's Trainer

"Behind good losses always come a good win and next Saturday night Adrien's going get an excellent win.

"Sugar Ray Leonard, Muhammad Ali, even Bernard Hopkins. All these guys took losses but they came back and were victorious. We just have to get back to a world championship shot again.

"Camp is going well. He looks just as good as he did for the Maidana fight, he just has to maintain his weight at 147. He was at 139, so he had to eat more. Now he doesn't have to eat as much.

"I was surprised by the way Adrien got hit by Maidana. He'd been hit in the past, but I was surprised that Maidana hit him like that.

"Everyone wants to fight Floyd for the money. If Maidana had lost to Adrien his career would have been done, but if Maidana loses to Floyd, he will still have plenty of guys to fight. The timing was right for Maidana. After his victory over Adrien, Floyd noticed him and realized that it would be a good fight."

Broner is full of himself. But what he doesn't realize is that his act is wearing very, very thin on fans.

With the way he is acting, he cannot maintain any credibility fighting the likes of Carlos Molina. He is backing himself into a corner of having to take very tough fights in the near future. He will no longer be able to be protected by his management and this may ultimately be the undoing of his career.

The Good Doctor says:

He is partially right. Broner is one of the most polarizing fighters in the sport right now. "The Problem" (pun intended) is that it is for all the wrong reasons. When I read his statements above I really don't have a tremendous "Problem" (yes again) with them. He really isn't saying anything that most fighters don't say before a fight. I actually hope the guy retools his fight game and gets his life on the straight and narrow. Although he has some flaws that need to be adjusted in the ring, he still has some raw talent that could be turned into something decent.

Can't wait to see this card... I think a Friday / Monday day off request will be in order...winters over and there's a steady stream of fight action deep into the summer. This must be what heaven is like.

(Nice comments Doc)

Polarizing??????

hmm.. Ali was polarizing, Tyson was polarizing, Pac destroying guys was polarizing...

Broner is annoying. You cant get beat to a pulp for 12 rounds, run out of the ring crying like a little girl and talk smack like you are the best ever and be taken seriously...

Broner is a joke.

Lol!!! You just made my point. Anyone that elicits a response like that is polarizing. Not in a good way, but polarizing nonetheless.

You talk about that dude like he owes you money!!!!!

It's easy to hate boner. He is the thing stuck to the bottom of a shoe. He cold cocked a granny and stole her purse. That is pitiful. Forget the stupid comments and noise. He knocked out a granny.

A polarizing figure would make me stop in my tracks and take notice...

I guess your definition of polarizing is different from mine.

I said a long time ago that Broner has some legit physical gifts, and that I hoped he would get it together and represent as an american for our sport.

Instead he is a complete classless douche bag and I dont respect him for a minute.

I cant tell you how many Broners I scored 25 points on in basketball. One after another, they all sooner or later shut up.


When he says things like " Im going to hit Madaina so hard he is gonna speak English".... I honestly laugh

because that is some legit and funny trash talk.....

When he does his other BS I cringe because he is classless and ignorant...

It appears to me that our definitions are different and that's cool. I view polarizing as anything or anyone that can elicit a very strong, often emotional response be it positive or negative. I think that is why the tail whipping Maidana gave him brought out a ton of vitriol towards him.

As for calling him classless, ignorant, and douche bag, I find it extremely hard to argue with you on that.
