Adrien Broner has lost his head (not literally, of course) after his loss to Manny Pacquiao.
All three of the judges’ scorecards went in favour of the 40-year-old Filipino, who put on a brilliant display against the 29-year-old American boxer in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Following on from the fight, Broner delivered one of the most questionable interviews of his life with Showtime presenter Jim Gray.
“Bring your motherf****** ass over here, I got a lot to say,” he said.
Unsurprisingly, Gray immediately fired back over his choice of language.
“We’re gonna conduct this professionally or we’re not gonna have an interview,” he said.
“You make the decision. What did you think about the fight?”
Of course, Broner was convinced that he should have won the bout against Pacquiao.
“I beat him, everybody out there knows I beat him!” he responded.
“Everybody out there knows I beat him, I controlled the fight, he was missing, I hit him plenty more times. I beat him.”
Oh, and Broner wasn’t done there. While most people would have accepted humble pie by now, he was not having any of it.
In fact, when Gray told Broner he had averaged less than eight punches per round, it once again set him off.
“It already sounds like you were against me, so I haven’t got a fair shake talking to you,” he said.
“Let me talk something… I want to thank the whole hood who came out here. I love y’all. I did this for the hood, you know I beat that boy.
“They trying to get that money again with Pacquiao and Floyd, but it’s cool, I ain’t worried about it I’m still that n***** man. I’m on top Cincinnati stand up, westside. Two-five.”
The defeated boxer took one final swing during the post-fight interview. His target wasn’t Pacquiao, however.
He actually took aim at Gray after he was asked about his recent results inside of the ring.
“I’m 3-3-1 in my last 7 fights, but I’d be 7-0 against you,” he said.
Well… that escalated, didn’t it?
Floyd Mayweather, who destroyed Tenshin Nasukawa in an exhibition match on 31st December, attended the bout and continued to fuel speculation of a rematch with Pacquiao.
Should Pacquiao and Mayweather have a rematch?
