Report: Warrant issued for Adrien Broner’s arrest

Adrien Broner might be in some more trouble! According to TMZ Sports, a judge has issued a warrant for Broner’s arrest after he failed to appear at a hearing in Las Vegas today.

Broner, who was seen on video punching a man and pushing a woman in Las Vegas back in September, was cited for battery.

Broner was scheduled to appear in court on Monday, but because he did not appear, the judge issued a warrant, according to TMZ Sports.

The 28-year-old Broner told TMZ Sports that he did not know about the hearing, and is looking to clear things up.

Court records show the summons that was supposed to be sent to Broner was returned to the court because it was “not deliverable as addressed,” according to TMZ Sports.

Adrien Broner: ‘If I was Mexican, I would be a billionaire already’

Adrien Broner has a big test at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY on Saturday night. Broner will be battling Mexican-American star Mikey Garcia in a 12-round, junior-welterweight clash. 

Broner has had a lot of success in his career. The 28-year-old, Cincinnati native is a four-division belt holder, and has made some decent money along the way. However, Broner feels he would be a bigger star if he got more support from African-Americans.

Here is what he told Fighthype.com:

“No disrespect to my race, but if I was Mexican I would be a billionaire already. Point, blank, period – but, it’s more tough for us to reach that certain level because our people don’t really back our people the way their people back their people,” Broner said

“When you talk about, as we say, n****s. When you talk about n****s, it’s so many of us going against our own people that it’s like a crab in a bucket. A lot of reasons a lot of us don’t prevail is because the people we look up to really don’t bring us up like they can. I’m not one of them people,” Broner said.

You agree with Broner?

Mikey Garcia on fight with Broner: ‘This could be the Fight of the Year’

Three-division world champion Mikey Garcia is going up to 140 to challenge Adrien Broner on July 29 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.  For Garcia, this is an opportunity to show the world that he is one of the best fighters in the sport. Garcia and Broner completed a two-day media tour, which started in New York City on Monday, and ended in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

Garcia is very excited for this opportunity against Broner:

“I’m very happy to be here and get back in the ring. This is the kind of fight that I deserve and the kind of fight that will please the fans,” said Garcia. “Everybody already knows what kind of fighter Adrien Broner is. He’s a champion for a reason. The skills and talent are there. I’m undefeated and you can’t deny my skills either. That’s going to make this a great fight. This is really two of the best fighters matching up against each other. This is what boxing is all about. That’s what I want to give the fans. I’m not taking on any easy opponents, I’m here to challenge and be in big fights.”

According to Garcia, this could be the best fight in 2017:

“I want the fans to be able to appreciate the sport of boxing. These are the kind of fights that fans will remember for years. This could be the Fight of the Year. We’re very even when it comes to our accolades and achievements,” explained Garcia.

The 29-year-old Garcia thinks this fight will be talked about for a long time:

“This has all the ingredients of a great fight. On July 29 Barclays Center is going to be the place to be at. If you can’t make it, make sure you watch on SHOWTIME. Don’t miss it. People are going to be talking about it for years to come.”

Expect a lot of fireworks on July 29!

Adrien Broner on Canelo-GGG: ‘Canelo might stop him’

We have waited a long time for RING Magazine Middleweight World Champion Canelo Alvarez and IBO/IBF/WBA/WBC Middleweight World Champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin to step in the ring. The wait is over! September 16 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, NV should be a great night of boxing.

While Triple G is the favorite, there are some who believe that Canelo will get it done. Boxer Adrien Broner is one of them. Broner gave his thoughts on Canelo-GGG to “The Breakfast Club” on Power 105.1 in New York City.

“Canelo going to kick his a**. Canelo might stop him. Seriously, he might stop him,” Broner said.  Broner went on to explain why Canelo could stop Golovkin. “I think he got the tools to stop him. He(GGG) ain’t walking through Canelo’s punches like that.”

After his fight against Danny Jacobs, which Broner felt Jacobs won, some believe that the 35-year-old Golovkin may have lost a step. Broner disagrees, and explained what happened with Triple G in his last fight against Jacobs.

“He was fighting people that couldn’t stand it. You not going to knock everybody out. Everybody not going to go down, everybody not going to quit, everybody not going to stop fighting, and he finally ran into somebody who was with the sh** like he was. And I really felt Danny Jacobs won that fight.”

Broner was in New York City to promote his fight with Mikey Garcia on July 29 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.

Adrien Broner: ‘I think this will be one of the best performances of my career’

Four-division world champion Adrien “The Problem” Broner and three-division world champion Mikey Garcia went face-to-face for the first time Monday before their 12-round super lightweight showdown on July 29 in Brooklyn at the Barclays Center.

The fighters spoke to media at Dream Hotel Downtown in Manhattan to discuss their 140-pound clash that will headline an exciting night of action later this summer.

Over the years, we have been waiting to see the best out of Broner. Come fight night, Broner feels that will happen.

“I’m training hard and I think this will be one of the best performances of my career. This will take me to the superstar level where I need to be,” said Broner. “I heard Mikey is a big favorite – they aren’t giving me much of a chance. I hope no one puts their house against me on this fight, because it won’t work out well for you.”

Broner, who lost his WBA super-lightweight title after missing weight before his fight against Ashley Theophane in 2016, does not believe making 140 will be a problem.

“This can take our careers to the next level. I’m taking this seriously. I’ve been training in Colorado Springs. The weight will not be a problem. This gives me a reason to make 140. I’m not paying a man to put hands on me.”

Broner had one final warning for Garcia:

“I want everyone to tune in on July 29. You will see a real serious Adrien Broner in the ring. It might get ugly for Mikey on July 29.”

Broner and Garcia, two world-class fighters in their prime, meet at a critical time in their respective careers in one of the most intriguing matches in boxing. Both Broner and Garcia have had spectacular victories at Barclays Center in Brooklyn during their careers. Broner successfully defended his welterweight title against Paulie Malignaggi at Barclays Center on June 22, 2013, and Garcia, coming off a lengthy layoff, defeated Elio Rojas via fifth-round TKO at the arena on July 30, 2016.
Broner, a three-division world champion by the age of 23, and one of the youngest four-division world champions in boxing history, remains one of the most accomplished and popular athletes in the sport today.  Among the top 140-pounders in the world, Broner is undefeated at or below 140 pounds with his only two losses coming against welterweight world champions Marcos Maidana and Shawn Porter. At just 27 years old, Broner (33-2, 24 KOs) still believes he is the future of the sport and looks to prove it against Garcia onSaturday, July 29.
Hailing from Cincinnati, Ohio, Broner has achieved more in his young career than most fighters can hope for in a lifetime.  After earning world titles at 130, 135 and 147 pounds, Broner won a belt in a fourth weight division – 140 pounds – in October 2015 when he defeated Khabib Allakhverdiev via 12th round stoppage to become the second youngest four-division champion in boxing history at 26 (behind Oscar De La Hoya, 24).  Broner will turn 28 years old on July 28, the day before his bout with Garcia.
Garcia, 29 years old and undefeated (36-0, 30 KOs), is a recently crowned lightweight champion and one of the best pound-for-pound boxers in the sport. He will move up in weight for the second time in just three fights to challenge Broner.  Garcia is a member of a renowned boxing family, and is noted for his sportsmanship and his commanding presence in the ring, honed by his brother and acclaimed trainer Robert Garcia. He has held world titles at 126, 130 and 135 pounds, but has never fought above 138.
Garcia, of Moreno Valley by way of Oxnard, Calif., returned to the ring after a two-and-half-year layoff in July 2016 without missing a beat.  After defeating Rojas, Garcia became a three-division champion by beating previously undefeated lightweight world champion Dejan Zlaticanin with a vicious third-round knockout this January.  Garcia has stopped 19 of his last 21 opponents including Roman “Rocky” Martinez, Juan Manuel Lopez, Orlando Salido and Bernabe Concepcion.

Adrien Broner sentenced to three days in jail

Adrien Broner has been struggling to stay out of trouble over the past couple years. Unfortunately for Broner, the trouble continues. Broner was sentenced to three days in jail after pleading guilty to a disorderly conduct charge from an incident at a Kentucky bar back in 2014, according to FOX19.

The jail time for disorderly conduct was suspended, according to the FOX19 report.

However, Broner will serve three days because of contempt, which stems from Broner not showing up for any of his court hearings from the 2014 incident.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Adrien Broner needs to leave Cincinnati!

Adrien Broner has had a lot of problems over the past few years, including a stint in prison last summer. Sadly, the problems continue. According to reports, Broner, 27, was arrested for a warrant from 2014 in Covington, KY, last night, which is close to his hometown of Cincinnati.  Broner claimed that his car was being followed and was shot at in Cincinnati.  He traveled into Kentucky where he was ultimately stopped, and arrested. Broner was released in the morning. According to police, Broner’s car was riddled with bullets.

When will Broner finally get it?  He has a lot of ability and personality, but he finds a way into the headlines, for all the wrong reasons.  We keep waiting for “The Problem” to get it; unfortunately, we continue to get incidents like this.

At the some point, boxing will not be there for Broner.  While he is a former four-division world titleholder, Broner has had issues when he stepped up in competition (Maidana and Porter). What is Broner at this point of his career?  Could you see him beating a Terrance Crawford? Keith Thurman? Kell Brook? Errol Spence? I’m not sure he can. Broner’s power really has not traveled with him to 140 and 147.  There are a bunch of exciting fights out there for him. However, his behavior tells you that he needs to work on Adrien Broner, the person.

One thing Broner could do to change things is move out of Cincinnati. According to WCPO, Here are some of things Broner has done in the Cincinnati area:

Robbery (2010 and 2007), aggravated robbery (2007), felonious assault (2007), gun charges (2007 and 2008), domestic violence (2008), intimidation of a witness (2008).

Some of these crimes have led to incarnation. Last year, Broner was incarcerated for showing up late to court. He was in court because of an alleged robbery and assault, outside of a bowling alley in the Cincinnati area. Ultimately, the charges were dismissed.

Not everybody can stay in their hometown once they become successful. Broner is one of those guys. He can no longer stay in Cincinnati. AB take my advice and leave Cincinnati.

A move will serve you well.
