Adrien Broner suspended by WBC for F— Mexican interview

Adrien BronerThe WBC — an otherwise worthless organization — actually made itself useful on Wednesday when it suspended Adrien Broner for an offensive postfight interview last weekend following the boxer’s win over Carlos Molina.

In the interview, Broner called himself the “can man” and stated that he “beat the f— out of a MexiCAN.” (warning: language is inappropriate and offensive)

The WBC responded Wednesday by issuing the following statement:

Adrien Broner , former WBC lightweight champion has offended many persons of the world with his words during the interview after the fight vs Molina .

The World Boxing Council holds human equality as its banner and will not accept a former WBC champion to make racially offensive statements.

Since words have different meanings and can be interpreted in different ways , the WBC is issuing this open letter to Adrien Broner to either clarify what he meant with his words or to issue a public apology if those words were intended to be despective and offensive .

Adrien Broner is hereby suspended from participating in any WBC sanctioned Championship and will be excluded from the WBC Ratings until the time he makes a public apology satisfactorily to the public of the world .

Boxing is a great sport , it is a world sport and boxers are honorable and exemplary members of the community . FairPlay and human equality must always be upheld.

As far as we can tell, Broner has not yet responded to the suspension. He doesn’t have to, and knowing him, he might not want to. Being offensive is what he does and who he is.

Floyd Mayweather Sr. thinks Marcos Maidana fought dirty

Floyd Mayweather Sr. is known for being a trash-talker who doesn’t give much credit to fighters other than his son, and that’s exactly how he was after “Money” beat Marcos Maidana via majority decision Saturday.

Floyd Sr. was interviewed by Hustle Boss on Monday, two days after Floyd’s narrow win over Maidana (I thought it should have been a draw). Though Maidana presented Floyd’s biggest challenge in years and many people had him actually winning, Floyd Sr. refused to give “Chino” credit and instead essentially said the man fought dirty.

“I think it was a superb, masterful boxer fighting an MMA fighter,” Mayweather Sr. said. “He was an MMA fighter!”

“[Maidana] hit him in the balls, he hit him all around, on his hips, hit him in the back of the head, head-butted his eye, and beat him in the back of the head. Man, c’mon.

“Maidana doesn’t deserve (credit).”

Floyd Mayweather Marcos Maidana headbuttFloyd Sr. even went so far as to say that because of all the dirty tactics by Maidana, Floyd Jr. should avoid a rematch.

“With all that stuff that Maidana did, hitting below the belt, twisting the arm, hitting behind the head, hitting him with the head and busting that eye, if I was Floyd, I wouldn’t fight him again.”

Pops can say what he wants, but the reality is Floyd got roughed up by a rough fighter who overwhelmed him in several rounds. Headbutts happen regularly in boxing. Unless you’re Timothy Bradley, they’re considered part of the game, not a dirty play. And with any nut shots or hits behind the hit, that stuff just tends to happen, too. I think this is just an excuse coming from Floyd’s corner to cover up for him not looking too good in the fight. Maidana goes all-out and that’s part of what makes him so tough.

Lil Wayne wanted to fight Marcos Maidana’s trainer (Video)

Lil Wayne was in a combative mood after watching his buddy Floyd Mayweather barely beat Marcos Maidana by majority decision on Saturday at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

As this video shows, Weezy was prepared to throw down with members of Maidana’s crew after the fight. TMZ says things got heated after Weezy was hit by a water bottle. Lil Wayne went after Maidana’s crew in response. You can hear him repeatedly shouting, “Let’s go!”

Lil Wayne has been in Floyd’s entourage for his last several fights. As hard as Weezy is, you still don’t want to mess with Maidana’s click. Those dudes are from Oxnard and not to be taken lightly. Seriously, who do you think wins? The real gangsters from Oxnard, or this trio of sock puppets?

Marcos Maidana learns the hard way never to eat during a Jim Gray interview (Video)

Marcos Maidana Jim GrayJim Gray was in full-on mall cop mode Saturday while serving as the ringside correspondent for Showtime’s pay-per-view telecast of the Floyd Mayweather-Marcos Maidana fight.

I mean just check out his reaction when Maidana went to eat a snack after his fight. Did you see Gray snatch the wrapper right out of his hand? Guy was just trying to enjoy a little powdered something-something, and Gray rejects him like Dikembe Mutumbo.

Not in Gray’s house!

Although, now that I think about it, maybe Gray thought Maidana was trying to get an unauthorized plug for a food company during their interview. Gray’s not about to have any of that! You want some advertising during our show? You will pay the big bucks!

DeSean Jackson loved his shoutout from Adrien Broner (Video)

Adrien Broner Jim Gray

Adrien Broner was quite the clown in his post-fight interview on Saturday night, which is nothing new.

In addition to talking about how he’s a “Can-Man” and how he beat the f— out of a Mexican, Broner told Showtime’s Jim Gray that he was thinking about the NFL during his fight. Seriously.

Broner said that because he was in Washington D.C. training, he thought about how the Redskins acquired DeSean Jackson. He said that made him want his hometown Bengals to get Michael Vick, who signed with the Jets.

D-Jack was watching the fight and posted video of Broner’s comments on Instagram, along with the caption: “Adrien Broner Is a fool !! This What he was thinkn During the fight !! LMAO !!”

Broner did drop an F-bomb here, so be warned:

RG3 was also watching the fight and tweeted the following:

Yeah, that’s about the only non-offensive thing Broner got right in his interview. Otherwise he was his usual nutty self.

Floyd Mayweather cut above right eye by Marcos Maidana headbutt (GIF)

Floyd Mayweather Marcos Maidana headbuttFloyd Mayweather Jr. was cut for the first time in one of his fights, making his bout with Marcos Maidana unusually uncomfortable for him.

Maidana caught Floyd with a headbutt in the fourth round to open up a cut above Floyd’s right eye. Floyd was bleeding afterwards and was treated by his corner between rounds the rest of the fight to keep the cut in control, and they did a good job doing so.

Even before the cut, Maidana was making life difficult for Floyd. He was relentless in the first few rounds and did a good job cornering Floyd against the ropes and throwing punches, especially the overhand right. Floyd took over in the second half of the fight and closed well. I thought it was a draw, which is how one of the three judges scored it. The other two scored it in favor of Mayweather, who won by majority decision. Don’t ask me how one judge had it 9 rounds to 3 in favor of Floyd. That was ridiculous.

Floyd Mayweather has literal circus ring entrance (Video)

Credit Floyd Mayweather for being a pioneer in his field once again, because the guy broke new ground with his ring entrance before his fight with Marcos Maidana on Saturday night.

Floyd was flanked by Lil Wayne and Justin Bieber for his ring entrance, but before he came out, he literally had a circus act. We’re talking jugglers and jesters and everything walking out before him. There was even a carnival barker. He also had fake money raining down as confetti, keeping with “The Money Team” theme.

And here’s Floyd walking out with his usual mates Weezy and Boy George Bieber:
