Adrien Broner just realized that his previously-undefeated-record got tainted due to his choice of fights to accept.
Though he wasn’t trying to excuse anything, the former four-division world champion saw that he has gone 0-2-1 in his past three fights. His overall record would have been better, Broner assumes, if he were more keen in selecting who he boxes.
Still Be Undefeated

The American boxer suffered a pair of 12-round unanimous decision losses over Pacquiao and Mikey Garcia while his match vs Jessie Garcia resulted into a majority draw. Following these blots on his record, Broner realized that he’d still be undefeated if he turned down fights.
“People don’t do what I do, man,” Broner told a group of reporters while he was in California to support Gervonta Davis who knocked out Mexican veteran Hugo Ruiz on Saturday night.
“You know, if, and I ain’t making no excuses or nothing, but if I turned down fights, I’d still be undefeated – point blank, period.”
“I’m from the streets, man. I don’t care, and I’ll fight everybody again. Can’t wait,” Broner continued.
Taking No Punishment
‘The Problem’ now thinks that he will be able to make a relatively quick return to the ring since he didn’t consider the Pacquiao fight particularly taxing. The ringside judges scored the match 116-112, 117-111, and 116-112 all in favour of the Filipino athlete.
“June,” Broner responded when asked when he’d like to fight again. “Sh*t, I ain’t take no punishment.”
Aside from a rumoured fight against Keith Thurman for the WBA welterweight title, Broner also feels like he could move back down to 140 pounds for the right fight. “I’m comfortable at any weight. Have my check right, we’re gonna have a hell of a fight.”
