Broner’s painful loss against the Argentine boxer set Twitter on fire, making it one of the most talked about fights this year. But what does the worlds most legendary boxers have to say about the knock out?
While on the red carpet for Floyd Mayweather’s Annual Celebrity Classic Toy Drive and Basketball Game, HipHollywood talked with Mayweather himself to get his reaction on Broner’s defeat.
“Adrien Broner is a true champion. I love him. I take my hat off to him,” he said. “When you’re at the top, everybody wants to ride the wave, be by your side. But as soon as you take a loss, everybody wants to talk bad about you. It comes with the territory. When you’re competing, someone has to win, someone has to lose … I’m going to stand behind him.”
Sugar Shane Mosley expressed his thoughts, telling HipHollywood that Broner is a “real champion”. “I take the good out of it. I seen a young kid who had a great chin, had a lot of heart. He got knocked down, got back up and fought all the way to the end.”
