By Justin Jones and Paul “Paparazzi” Jones – Whenever WBA (Super) champion Adrien “The Problem” Broner (31-2-0, 1 NC, 23 KOs) is involved with a boxing promotion you can always expect a little more theatre than usual, today’s weigh-in was no different.

Already dealing with legal issues – stemming from media reports of an alleged January, 2016 altercation involving Broner and arrest warrants issued thereafter – Broner added yet another distraction to the mix by weighing in above the Junior Welterweight limit of 140 lbs today in anticipation of his title defense tomorrow night against British contender Ashley “Treasure” Theophane (39-6-1, 11 KOs) in the main event of the Premier Boxing Champions card at the DC Armory (Washington, DC) on Spike TV.

Ashley Theophane - Remember back a few years when some fans and even a few experts called Adrien Broner “The new Floyd Mayweather,” or a “Mayweather clone?” Well, a whole lot has happened since then. Broner is no longer an unbeaten fighter, he has ran afoul with the law and, more recently, “The Problem” has appeared to have had problems getting along with Mayweather.

Remember back a few years when some fans and even a few experts called Adrien Broner “The new Floyd Mayweather,” or a “Mayweather clone?” Well, a whole lot has happened since then. Broner is no longer an unbeaten fighter, he has ran afoul with the law and, more recently, “The Problem” has appeared to have had problems getting along with Mayweather.

Broner, even more outspoken than Mayweather, recently had a spat with the retired great, going as far as to criticise Mayweather, Al Haymon and Mayweather’s whole “The Money Team,” outfit. Floyd told FightHype how Broner “has a lot of growing up to do.”

However, as he gets ready to fight Britain’s Ashley Theophane this coming Friday night (in a fight that looked to have been in jeopardy due to Broner’s recent troubles, a warrant issued for his arrest and all) Broner told Sky Sports he has “no beef” with Mayweather.
