Adrien Broner chokes Emanuel Taylor at press conference (Video)

How desperate are Adrien Broner and Emanuel Taylor to attract some attention to their Saturday fight? They pulled the old “let’s make something crazy happen at our press conference” move to grab some headlines.

During their news conference Thursday, the two were standing side-by-side for some photos. They exchanged trash talk and were pointing in each other’s faces, and then the short-tempered Broner briefly grabbed Taylor by the throat before they were separated.

The two will fight on Saturday in Cincinnati with Broner still looking to repair his image after getting his head handed to him by Marcos Maidana last year.

Adrien Broner on Emanuel Taylor: I’m going to kick his ass

Adrien Broner may have lost to Marcos Maidana in December, but he sure hasn’t lost any confidence.

Broner (28-1, 22 KOs) is set to face Emanuel Taylor on Saturday in his hometown of Cincinnati. Broner is eager to give his hometown fans a show and is promising “an ass beating,” in his words.

“I’m still AB, I’ll give him an ass beating for sure,” Broner said at his workout on Wednesday. “I didn’t come to play any games. I’m here to kick his ass. I’m not playing around. If I feel like dancing, I’m going to dance. But I’m going to get the job done and it won’t be going to a decision.”

Broner has been criticized for goofing around and being too much of a showman in the ring. He clowned around against Maidana and got knocked down twice. Broner claims to be more disciplined now.

“I have no more flaws. I put down everything. Now I just have fun, I stay in shape and I keep positive people around.”

Oh, and how rich is this? Despite his loss, Broner is still putting himself in the same category as Floyd Mayweather Jr., who is undefeated.

“He’s going to come to fight. When people fight an Adrien Broner or a Floyd Mayweather they’re going to come to fight. I’m sure he trained to his best, he’s in tip-top shape and he’s ready to go.”

Suuuuure Adrien. Keep believing you’re in the same class as Floyd. Not since you got worked by Maidana you’re not. Can you believe that these remarks actually would qualify as humble for Broner?

Adrien Broner drops music video for song featuring Rick Ross

Remember how back in April we told you Adrien Broner was cultivating a Rick Ross look? Well it turns out there’s a lot behind that.

Broner is an aspiring rapper and has been releasing rap singles on YouTube over the past few months. Most of them are just the sound, but for his song “40,” he actually filmed a music video featuring his buddy Rick Ross.

You might think 40 is some sort of boxing reference about the number of wins or knockouts he has, but Broner hasn’t fought that much. Instead, “40” seems to represent all the fine things Broner owns that cost him 40k.

The song itself stinks, but the production for the music video is professional.

Adrien Broner sued by woman for leaking sex tape

Adrien Broner is being sued by a women over a sex tape video he leaked online last year.

Boxing Scene first reported news of the lawsuit brought against Broner, a boxer who is 28-1 but has become known for his exploits outside the ring more than his athletic accomplishments. Larry Brown Sports can also confirm that a suit was filed on May 1 by a woman named Andrea Reyes, who says she was one of the two women who appeared in a sex tape with Broner last year.

Last September, a graphic sex tape of Broner engaged in a threesome with two women made its way onto WorldStarHipHop. We figured at the time that the video was posted by Broner for purposes of boosting his name/giving him more exposure.

The woman who is suing him, Reyes, says she agreed to appear in a sex tape with Broner and a third woman, but she did so under the agreement that the tape would remain private. She says Broner crossed her by releasing it.

In the suit, Reyes says she is a 23-year-old waitress at a small family-owned restaurant in Las Vegas and that Broner came in continuously asking for her phone number. She finally gave it to him, they went out, and they began a romantic relationship for a few months.

Boxing Scene says Reyes is seeking at least $30,000 in damages, plus attorneys fees and costs.

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.

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.

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

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.
