You guys saw how Adrien Broner left with Paulie's girlfriend? That's like setting a dead person on fire!! I died when I heard that news.

His intelligence really shines when he calls boxing as a presenter- he truly understands the game and is able to translate that knowledge into ring generalship.

BTW Malignaggi beat Broner. Not only did Broner never hurt Malignaggi at any point but Broner was taking time off just to make the 12 rounds as Broner could not keep pace with Malignaggi. Broner was getting tagged and pushed around the entire fight. Broner is the million dollar man and so much is invested in him for the future PPVs that they just had to give it to him.
Yes decent...slickness is just one aspect of boxing. He needs to get back to basics and keep his hands up and his chin down. That's his one big flaw aside from not having any power. Roy Jones Jr. was one of the slickest ever, and as he got older and his reflexes slowed down, he started getting hurt. Same with Ali.

The fight ended the way most of us predicted, with Broner countering and landing the harder more effective punches. I would have liked to see Paulie win, but his flurries and combos weren't enough to back Broner up or keep him from coming forward.

Girlfriend? You mean the gold-digging skank Paulie was banging on the side? I don't think going home with her is much to brag about. But some guys are happy to scoop up the leftovers. Whatever this pig is going to cost Broner--along with his gold-capped teeth, he probably should have used that money to help get his mom out of that dumpy apartment she's still rotting in. What a man.

AB's a punk. I seriously don't want to watch any of his matches.

I get it that he's trying to copy Mayweather but he doesn't have the pedigree Mayweather does and Money wouldn't do even half of the unclassy things AB has already done these past couple of years.

Seriously, dude needs to grow up....
