Adrien Broner says he’d get $100 Million fighting Mayweather right now
By Allan Fox: Adrien ‘The Problem’ Broner doesn’t understand why Floyd Mayweather Jr won’t fight him because the two would make HUGE money. Broner (34-4-1, 24 KOs) believes a fight between him and Mayweather would make big money, with each of them getting $100 million to scoop up.
Broner would need a large wheelbarrow to haul away the loot from a fight with Mayweather to take to the nearest bank to deposit the booty.
AB says that Mayweather has been making between three to eight million for his recent exhibition matches, although he’s telling everybody that he’s making ten million to twenty million. In other words, Mayweather is inflating his numbers to make it seem like his exhibition matches are doing better financially than they are.
Broner, 33, isn’t sure whether Mayweather is purposefully choosing not to fight him because he doesn’t want to see him do well or what.
Adrien can’t comprehend why Floyd wouldn’t want to fight him and make more money when it’s in his best interest financially to do so. Is it because Mayweather doesn’t want Broner to make huge ducats to keep him out of his exclusive club?
Broner is fighting Ivan Redkach (23-6-1, 18 KOs) on February 25th on BLK Prime in Atlanta in the first of three fights with that company this year.
AB is being given $10 million+ for the three fights, which probably pales compared to what he would get in an exhibition or real fight against the 45-year-old Mayweather.
“These last couple of exhibitions that Floyd [Mayweather] has been doing, he’s been getting threes, fours, fives, eights,” said Adrien Broner to Round Da Way podcast about why Floyd Mayweather Jr doesn’t want to fight him.
“He say, ‘I got 10 million, 20 million.’ Okay, if that’s what he say cool. But if me and him do an exhibition, automatically off the top, you got to give him 100 million, and you’ve got to give me 100 million,” Broner continued.
With the way Broner puts it, it’s hard to understand why Mayweather wouldn’t want to fight him because he can make a lot more money facing him in an exhibition match than the guys he’s been facing. The average boxing fan doesn’t want to pay to see Floyd fight social media influencers or MMA guys with no experience inside the ring.
“Now, he don’t want to see me with that because I’m already doing what I’m doing without the type of money he’s getting, but I’m getting money,” said Mayweather. “I do what I do, and I got the name that I got off of what I’ve earned.
“If they give me 100 million, listen. I can’t say that I personally hurt this [bleep] say that, ‘I don’t want to see him with this type of money,’ but with his actions and the way he be moving and out the blue, you’ll hear him give an interview about me and scream, ‘AB is about broke.‘
“‘I don’t even speak to you or talk bad about you. Every time I talk about you, I talk good about you. You’re part of the reason I became what I am when I first seen you. All I ever did was look up to you.
“‘The only thing I ever did bad to you, and I don’t think it was really bad was f**k some hoes that was with you.’ That’s it. The only thing I ever did was f**k some hoes that ride with you. Other than that, I never did anything to him. Never. His kids love me. I love his kids.
“No, because I had my own s**t,” said Broner when asked if Mayweather ever tried to assign him when he was coming up. I started my own s**t. I didn’t need him. When he first met me, I was a millionaire. I was already me. When he came to see me fight, I was already me,” said Broner.
