Adrien Broner: I just beat the f— out of a Mexican (Video)

Adrien Broner gold grill

Adrien Broner was at it again with his brash ways after beating Carlos Molina on Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Broner beat Molina by unanimous decision and proclaimed that his loss to Marcos Maidana humbled him. But shortly after saying he had been humbled, Broner ran his mouth.

Broner called himself the “can man,” as in he could beat an Afri-CAN and just beat the f— out of a Mexi-CAN. The language includes the curse word, so be warned:

Adrien Broner for you, in peak form.

Broner did say that he is willing to fight anyone and that he wants to fight Manny Pacquaio. We’d like to see that, too, to watch Pac-Man destroy him.

Showtime’s Jim Gray even had to scold Broner for his inappropriate interview comments.

Floyd Mayweather jealous Nelly took ex-girlfriend Shantel Jackson

Nelly Miss Jackson

Floyd Mayweather has lashed out at ex-girlfriend/ex-fiancee Shantel Jackson over social media many times since the two broke up, but he never got quite as personal about it until last week.

Floyd posted on his Facebook page that the reason he and Miss Jackson broke up is because she got an abortion. It’s pretty obvious that Floyd crossed the line by sharing that information with the entire world, but that’s the the type of immature behavior we’re used to seeing from him. It was also easy to connect the dots and figure that Floyd was ticked off that Shantel’s moved on to another man — rapper Nelly.

TMZ reported that Floyd was bothered because Nelly used to be in his circle of friends and the boxer felt betrayed. They also say Floyd knew what he was doing was wrong when he posted about the abortion, but he just couldn’t control himself.

Nelly responded to the story on Friday, posting a pair of notes on Instagram. In one message, he denied ever being friends with Floyd, instead saying they just knew each other from clubs. He also says Floyd tried to get with his ex-girlfriend.

“Me and Floyd being such good friends is a total shock to me considering we have never exchanged numbers, never been invited to a fight, never been to his house, never ate lunch, we never have hung out anywhere other than seeing each other in a club! Floyd could be confusing his relationship with me with his relationship with my ex for whom he has exchanged numbers and has flown personally to attend His weekend in Michigan which I wasn’t invited (guess I wasn’t in the circle of friends then) lol.

“I have great respect for him as far as him being a true champion in his sport but homies ..?? Circle of friends ..? Nahh … Good luck to him tho keep making history champ.”

What goes around comes around, eh Floyd? He needs to get his head screwed on straight before his fight.

Floyd Mayweather wants money back on Shantel Jackson’s plastic surgery

Floyd Mayweather Shantel Jackson Instagram

Floyd Mayweather is still obviously bent out of shape over his breakup with ex-fiancee Shantel Jackson, because he keeps taking shots at her over social media.

A few weeks ago, Floyd took a cruel shot at Miss Jackson over Instagram by posting an unflattering picture of his ex-squeeze. Then on Thursday, Floyd posted a sonogram and insinuated the two broke up because he was upset Miss Jackson had an abortion and claimed it was a miscarriage.

Those were some low blows by Floyd. All the shots he’s taking show he’s still hurt by her breaking up with him.

Now Del included this in his post about the abortion earlier Thursday, but I decided to highlight it anyway in its own post. Not only did Floyd talk about the abortion, he also jabbed Miss Jackson for all her plastic surgery and said he wanted the money back for what he paid for.

We know she got a boob job, and it looks like she may have had her nose, cheeks and chin altered. Perhaps even her lips.

Thanks to all the improvements, rapper Nelly is a fan and is now dating her. That probably has Floyd bent more than anything else; he’s not used to not getting what he wants.

Floyd Mayweather’s Facebook claims Shantel Jackson breakup was over abortion

Floyd-Mayweather-Shantel-Jackson-abortion

Floyd Mayweather Jr. is unlikely to stop hurling insults toward his ex-fiancee Shantel Jackson anytime soon, but someone may have officially crossed the line during the childish feud. On Thursday morning, Mayweather’s official Facebook page featured a post that claimed he and Miss Jackson broke up because she decided to have an abortion.

The post, which also included an ultrasound of twin fetuses in the womb, was later deleted. It is unclear if it was Floyd who posted it. SB Nation’s MMA Mania shared the screenshot you see above before the post disappeared.

“The real reason me and Shantel Christine Jackson @missjackson broke up was because she got a abortion, and I’m totally against killing babies,” Mayweather or the person posing as him wrote. “She killed our twin babies. #ShantelJackson #FloydMayweather #TheMoneyTeam #TMT.”

While that post and photo have since been removed, another photo of Jackson was later posted on Mayweather’s Facebook page with Floyd (or whoever was running the account) talking about all the plastic surgery he had to pay for.

Floyd Mayweather wants to buy the Clippers

Floyd Mayweather

Floyd Mayweather Jr. has serious interest in buying the Los Angeles Clippers if Donald Sterling is forced to sell the team, the wealthy boxer said Tuesday.

Mayweather met with the media to promote his Saturday fight with Marcos Maidana, and he expressed his interest in purchasing the NBA franchise. He said he spoke with his business adviser Al Haymon, Mayweather Promotions chief executive Leonard Ellerbe and Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer about forming a group to put together a bid for the Clippers.

“I called Al today about that to see if me, Leonard and Al, and hopefully Richard and a couple of other guys, a couple other of my billionaire guys, we can come together and see what we can come up with,” Mayweather said via ESPN’s Dan Rafael. “Hopefully, we can do it, and it’s not just talk.

“With me, I can’t come in talking about Mayweather only gonna get 3 percent, 4 percent. I got to get a solid percentage. Do we want to buy the Clippers? Yes, we do. We are very, very interested in buying the Clippers. We’ll keep the Clippers right where they’re at. When I’m not boxing, I’m at the games all the time. We do want to buy the Clippers. Me and my team do want to buy the Clippers and we can afford the Clippers.”

Mayweather is a regular at Clippers and Lakers games and has long shown off betting tickets for games he wagers on. He said he would stop betting on NBA games immediately as a potential owner.

Mayweather also had some very noteworthy things to say about Sterling.

“Donald Sterling, he’s been getting a lot of negative press and my thing is this — I don’t have nothing negative to say about this guy,” Mayweather said per Rafael. “He’s always treated me with the utmost respect. He has always invited me to games, always. Has always told me, ‘Floyd, I want you to sit right next to me and my wife.’ I don’t know about the mistress. But I’m talking about him and the wife.”

Well, if that’s how Sterling treated Mayweather, then you really have to wonder why he said the things he did on tape. Or maybe Mayweather was one of the few people who earned his respect.

As far as Mayweather’s chances of buying the Clippers go, I think it would be tough. Purchasing groups generally have to be long established and have contact with the league and other owners well ahead of time. This is not something that’s put together last minute. And despite being supremely wealthy as an athlete, Floyd is going to need to partner with several multi-millionaires in order to get the money together for such a purchase. They’re going to need a lot more money than they think. But I’d love to see it happen — Floyd as a prominent owner of an NBA team like the Clippers would be awesome, and you know he’d be able to attract free agents.

Floyd Mayweather rips Manny Pacquiao, says he fought like an ‘amateur’

Floyd-Mayweather-Thunder-BetFloyd Mayweather Jr. typically does not have nice things to say about Manny Pacquiao, so we shouldn’t be surprised that the undefeated champion was less than thrilled with what he saw from Pacquiao in his win over Timothy Bradley Jr. earlier this month. On Monday, Mayweather said the thought both Pacquiao and Bradley fought like “amateurs.”

“I thought that Bradley went out there and fought his heart out, but I think he was pulling a lot of shots like an amateur,” Mayweather said, via ESPN.com’s Dan Rafael. “I think he was making a lot of mistakes and he was very fatigued early on. I think that he was making a lot of mistakes, falling off balance and fighting like an amateur. I think both fighters fought like amateurs.

“I thought Pacquiao fought like an amateur also, and I wasn’t pleased with his performance, but he got the victory the best way he knows how, but I wasn’t pleased with his performance and I’m seeing something totally different in Pacquiao.”

Floyd said he typically does not watch Pacquiao’s fights and claimed the Bradley fight was the first time he watched Manny in several years. Pacquiao may have deserved criticism after his decision loss to Bradley and the knockout defeat to Juan Manuel Marquez, but he beat Bradley pretty convincingly in the rematch.

Still, Mayweather was not impressed. At one point, he even flirted with revisiting his old accusations that Pacquiao once used performance-enhancing drugs.

“I don’t see the same pop in Pacquiao’s shots. Once again, I’m not saying this guy is doing anything, but I don’t see the same snap in his shots,” Mayweather said. “He’s getting tired when he wasn’t getting tired before. I’m seeing something totally different whereas me, I’m still sharp, I’m still smart, I’m not getting fatigued. I wasn’t getting fatigued from the beginning, and those are the things that I see. I don’t know if you guys see it, but that’s what I see.”

Mayweather isn’t exactly what you would call a non-biased opinion. He’s always hating on Pacquiao.

Hurricane Carter dead at 76 after battle with prostate cancer

Hurricane CarterFormer boxer Rubin Hurricane Carter died at his home in Toronto on Sunday morning at the age of 76. He died during his sleep and the cause of death is said to be prostate cancer.

Carter was 27-12-1 with 19 knockouts in his fighting career. He fought for world titles twice but lost both bouts.

Carter is most well known for being wrongly incarcerated for a triple homicide he did not commit. He was tried in 1967 and ’76 and convicted both times. He was freed after 19 years in jail when the second conviction was overturned.

Carter’s story was captured in the 1999 movie “The Hurricane,” where Denzel Washington played the lead role.
