Adrien Broner is quirky character.
He will likely forever be remembered as the boxer who never reached his full potential because he couldn’t stay out of his own way.
The former four-division fighter once went 27 fights without tasting defeat while competing at super featherweight and lightweight. That changed when he moved up to higher weight classes.
Out of the ring issues and 4-consecutive losses in the ring at the hands of Manny Pacquiao, Mikey Garcia, Shawn Porter, and Marcos Maidana has brought his career to a standstill.
Having won his last fight back in February 2017, the fighter took to social media and demanded $10 million to return back to the ring.
“I haven’t heard from Stephen Espinoza. Me and Al [Haymon], we talk every day but ain’t nobody talking about that $10 million. So, I take that as I’m still retired. So what I’m going to do is just focused on my album, and I’m just a rapper. I’m a rapper now. S**t. Until they talk about my $10 million, I’m not going to be in the ring. So my album is dropping, and it is what it is,” said Adrien Broner.
He then doubled down in another video where he said he would rob people.
“I ain’t gonna lie, I been staying in Cincinnati for about the last month, and this shit done changed me all the way back,” Broner said on Instagram. “I ain’t AB no more. When y’all see me don’t call me AB, I’m ‘Twin’. This shit changed me all the way back to ‘Twin.’ This shit over with. They ain’t talkin’ about my $10 million, Al Haymon and Stephen Espinoza, they ain’t hit me up, they ain’t talkin’ bout my 10, so I’m ‘Twin’. Fuck that, I’m a street n***a. I’m a rapper, full-time rapper, I told y’all that.
“So anybody that think they gonna disrespect and talk crazy to me, don’t do it because I’m at the point right now where I might rob you. I might rob you. I’m just being honest. Just because. I’m back. The streets don’t respect nothin’ but violence anyway. I’m safe out here, I feel way more comfortable out here.
“See when I was a superstar and a star and all that shit, I got in trouble because I wasn’t comfortable. Out here I don’t get in trouble, this is normal day shit. I’ll rob the fuck outta you, say something stupid to me. And my shit still droppin’ ‘Still Adjusting To Fame’. On God! And I dare one of you rappers try me! I’ma do y’all bad. Y’all can’t beat me, I’ma knock one of y’all out on camera and put it up. What y’all gonna sue me? Then y’all career gonna be over. And if y’all wanna go to some extra street shit, I’ma shoot the fuck outta you. On God! On God ‘n ‘em, and y’all know I don’t know who ‘n ‘em’ is.
“What’s it, 93 degrees out this bitch? I’m out this bitch in Tims. Dirty ones! Tims! Fuck is you talkin’ bout, man. I’ma street n***a, I don’t give a fuck. All I change is socks and drawers, every day. Motherfucker just called me for $2,000, I’m about to go pay him in $10s and $5s. On God!”
