Adrien Broner wears double gold grill in ring after win
Adrien Broner kept his swag at maximum level after narrowly escaping Paulie Malignaggi with a split decision victory at Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Saturday.
The man who looks up to Floyd Mayweather Jr. and whom Mayweather calls the “future of boxing” did his best “Money” impression by showing off his riches after his fight.
Broner wasted no time replacing the mouthpiece he used for the fight with a double gold grill. He even shouted out his jeweler in his postfight interview for making the 18 karat gold grill, which he had on both the bottom and top.
During his interview with Showtime’s Jim Gray, Broner said he would let his fans pick his next opponent, saying that he would fight whomever received the highest percentage of votes. He also kept up his trash talk by boasting about taking Malignaggi’s girlfriend.
“I beat Paulie. I left with his belt and his girl!” Broner proclaimed.
The taunt enraged Malignaggi, who got in Broner’s face in response. You can read the entire story about Broner taking Malignaggi’s girlfriend here.
So, which do you prefer, Broner’s gold grill, or the diamond one he wore in May?
And by the way, for someone who promotes himself as the next Mayweather, Broner looked nowhere near as impressive as Floyd is in the ring. He barely beat Paulie. He has a long way to go before reaching Mayweather status.
