Adrien Broner Tries To Call Out Floyd Mayweather, Turns Self Into Laughingstock

A D.C. crowd featuring mayor Muriel Bowser and Steve Francis scornfully mocked Adrien Broner after the boxer clumsily tried to call a ringside Floyd Mayweather Jr. back into boxing.

Broner, who is a dick, defeated Ashley Theophane but lost his junior welterweight title anyway due to his inability to make weight. Broner’s post-fight interview eventually came around to his spotting of Mayweather and an attempt to lure the retired misogynist and woman-beater back into the ring. The crowd responded with a mix of jeers, boos, and laughter. Broner’s entourage then hustled him out of the arena and to Cincinnati, where he’ll face felony assault charges Monday. Best of luck next time, champ. Er, ex-champ.
