Adrien Broner goes wild in controversial interview after Vargas fight
Adrien Broner fought Jessie Vargas to a majority draw in a welterweight fight on Saturday night, but it was what went down after the bout that was perhaps more entertaining.
The 12-round Showtime main event saw Broner and Vargas go the distance with one judge scoring the fight 115-113 for Broner and the other two judges scoring it 114-114. After the results were announced, the two fighters traded verbal shots in the ring as Showtime announcer Jim Gray looked on. Here is the video (but beware of some foul language):

After he was done chirping at Vargas, Broner then turned his attention to Gray for the customary post-fight interview. However, the interview turned out to be anything but customary as the 28-year-old was combative all throughout and even insulted Gray’s eyesight at one point. Take a look (though there is some more foul language here):

Broner then took aim at the Barclays Center crowd, who booed him often during the fight in support of the Mexican-American Vargas, and got racial with his remarks. Here’s more video, which (you guessed it) has foul language:

By now, you know that Broner is no stranger to making controversial and sometimes downright offensive remarks during his post-fight interviews. Either you love him or you hate him, and Saturday’s latest shenanigans probably didn’t change anybody’s mind about Broner either way.
