Adrien Broner in his loss to Marcos Maidana
Former boxing champ Adrien Broner was slammed by his fans today for spending too much time partying and making explicit rap songs. Fans on social networking websites Twitter and Instagram ripped Broner after he announced his new single with sacrilegious, ungodly, date rape promoting rapper Rick Ross, while partying in a night club. His fans slammed him stating he should be spending time in the gym getting ready for his next fight. They are correct.
If you do not put in the work, you will not be at your best in the ring. You have other boxers out there in different weight classes spending 5 hours in the gym boxing, lifting weights and doing cardio, while you’re at the night club, strip club or in the recording studio far too often and drinking to excess on top of it.
You can’t play professional sports well and be a heavy drinker and or partier. You can’t have it both ways. You can go out to dinner and have a glass of wine, but partying in the club with beer and champagne isn’t going to help your career. Wasting your energies chasing and sexing multiple women, will sap your strength and diminish your performance in the ring.
Adrien Broner was mercilessly teased on Twitter by rival boxer Amir Khan, who posted this photo meme in a tweet
There’s nothing wrong with making music or movies in one’s spare time. However, Broner spends far too much time on distractions, such as partying, drinking and making profane music, splitting his focus. His boxing career is not getting the attention it deserves and if you want to be the best, you have to make sacrifices.
Adrien Broner was out of shape before the Marcos Maidana fight, which he ended up losing.
Fans lamented Broner is wasting his athletic talent and once again, they are correct. Weeks before his last fight, where he went on to suffer a big loss to challenger, Marcos Maidana, Broner showed up for the press conference 20-pounds heavier than he usually is with his face bloated from drinking alcohol. He looked tired and weary. Being an athlete is his job. He was roundly criticized by boxing pundits and fans alike over that incident, with many stating he was unprepared and being unprofessional. Once again, they were right, as he lost the fight and ran out of the ring crying.
Broner needs guidance and a makeover. Not his looks, but his lifestyle and mindset. He seems lost at times, even overwhelmed. You’re a millionaire. Spend the time and money to expand your mind and horizons. Read more books to gain knowledge and increase your understanding of the world we live in. Watch documentaries about politics and world history. Stop wasting your time on fruitless things that are deteriorating your life and career.
