Adrien Jerome Broner is a boxer from the US and he used to be a four-weight champion.
He grew up in Ohio and he spent most of his childhood trying to fit in with all of the other kids that were playing on the streets.
He claims that boxing managed to save him because he didn’t get into criminal activities which were popular amongst his friends back then.
His mother, Dorothy, says that he was always a bit agressive and that she is very happy that he found a hobby.
However, she doesn’t like the fact that he’s gone professional because he is injured all of the time.
In 2008 he decided to make his career official and he started out with defeating three boxers in his first fights.
That year, he beat Flores, Warren Huffman, Davis, Jett and Furney. He started his career very well and there was a lot of hope for him.
In 2011, he stepped out of his leager and he competed against Daniel Ponce de Leon. It was a very intense fight and people’s opinions on who may win were very split. However, Ponce De Leon won because of 2 points in his favor.
Broner was also involved in a show by HBO: Boxing After Dark and he had to fight with Litzau whom he defeated fast.
He attended WBO and defended his belt after playing with the best Featherweight players. However, it later turned out that he was 3 pounds over the limit and he had to be transfered into another weight group.
In the lightweight category he had to play with many different boxers.
The first one he met was Antonio DeMarco, who was the best one in the category. However, Broner won after beating DeMarco’s face so much he couldn’t see well enough to fight.
He fought with Gavin Rees too, but Gavin ended up surreding by the end of round three because he was so beaten up.
Broner started to get bored in the category he was in so he entered Welterweight where he started out with winning over Malignaggi.
He was just 23 and already had 3 different weight titles. The media loved him because he loved the camera and was always opened to give statements and talk about his achievements.
However, Adrien became a bit too confident and didn’t train enough for his next fight: the one with famous Marcos Maidana. Maidana knocked him out and soon Broner wasn’t even able to wrap the game.
Broner went back to light welterweight just to defeat Taylor and gain confidence to go back to regular welterweight.
In 2015, he lost to a famous boxer Shawn Porter who was a former IBF champion. Shawn was teasing Broner the whole game because he had just enough pounds to enter the category and wasn’t even in the average stats of a boxer from the same category.
However, Broner did not comment on this teasing and remained professional.
He then again returned to light welterweight and won a match with Allakhverdiev and later with Theophane.
He was talking about Mayweather Jr. later for some problems that were between them before.
His second return to welterweight brought him a winning and a nice salary od $1 million. He later said that he is taking his career more serious.
However, he turned back to light welterweight again in 2017.
He won a fight with Granados, but lost a fight to Mikey Garcia in July of this year.
In total, he has had 37 fights and he lost only 3 of them, while one didn’t happen because of complications.
In late months of 2016, people started to fear for Broner’s mental health since he started to upload various weird pictures with suicidal captions.
Many thought he will kill himself because the hints lead to it, but nothing happened.
Some people thought he would retire at a very young age, which is usual only for boxers that gained severe injuries which cannot be recovered.
In 2016, during winter months, he started to spend more and more time drinking and clubbing. In one of the night clubs, he was accused for choking a female worker almost to death.
The media talked about this a lot, but Broner never gave a proper statement.
During the spring of 2017, he got into troubles again.
He was arrested because the car he was driving had bullet holes. He claimed that they weren’t caused by him and that he was being asassinated.
He was in court and paid his bail to be let after he was accused of tricking the police.
Arie Nicole, his fiancee going by the real name of Arriene Gazaway, raises their children with him. They have one child although she has three more. They broke up in 2015 because they had many isuess with his career.
People think this is one of the main reasons why Broner wanted to commit suicide since he was desperate and put many messages like: „Baby, please come back“.
He later accused her that she was cheating on him while he was on tournaments. Social media was disgusted by his response on her miscarriage, saying „I’m glad that baby died man“.
Adrien pranked his girlfriend after a match when he acted out a proposal. The prank got a lot of attention by the media and his girlfriend didn’t seem mad, but she was surely uncomfortable when he asked her just to brush his hair.
Later in 2015 he really proposed her and they split up by the end of the year.
Many rumors suggest that they were together in 2016, but nobody confirmed it.
Their friends say that the relationship itself wasn’t very good because he was posessive and she wanted to have more freedom.
