What Was Really Adrien Broner’s Downfall?


Recommended Posts

It seems that right now Adrien Broner’s career and personal life is in tatters. Jessie Vargas has offered “The Problem” a rematch which the former three weight champion is yet to decide to take. The Cincinnati boxer achieved the aforementioned feat at the age of just twenty three years old when he won the WBA title after beating Khabib Allakhverdiev at 140lb in 2015.

Always felt he wasn't fully pushed. Needed a trainer, that could develop his natural talent. His own ego was probably a reason he kept 'Yes' men around.

 

He had a wonderful stiff jab but used it sparingly and he was too happy coasting. A frontrunner but a better team around him should've brought out more.

Too much focus on the riches and not enough on the process. He took one look at Floyd and thought that's what I'm gonna be. He thought it'd be easy. Floyd has largely proven to be poison as a promoter/manager. He doesn't know how to pass on the work ethic that lead to his success. He only shows the end result but can't seem to replicate the path that got him there.

He did have a lot of talent when he burst onto the scene. At 32 hes probably happy hes got a lot of money in the bank and can afford to pay someone to continue to brush his hair (ego!).

 

Another one who will retire soon and probably could of achieved more than he has.

--- Bud, he's got umpteen child support payments to umpteen baby mamas and umpteen lawyer payments to umpteen lawyers with nothing coming in anymore, a busted All About Billions flush.

 

Without Haymon protection both in and out of the ring, he wouldn't even have that.

I've always imagined Broner desperately searching the sewer systems of Cincinnati, looking for all those Benjamins he used to flush down the toilets.

 

 

- - Gonna have to do it in a wheelchair. Maybe you could start a Gofundme campaign to kick him down the road.
