Boxer Adrien Broner received his first career loss on Saturday night in an intense match against Marcos Maidana. Broner’s painful loss against the Argentine boxer set Twitter on fire, making it one of the most talked about fights this year. But what does the worlds most legendary boxers have to say about the knock out?

While on the red carpet for Floyd Mayweather’s Annual Celebrity Classic Toy Drive and Basketball Game, HipHollywood talked with Mayweather himself to get his reaction on Broner’s defeat.

“Adrien Broner is a true champion. I love him. I take my hat off to him,” he said. “When you’re at the top, everybody wants to ride the wave, be by your side. But as soon as you take a loss, everybody wants to talk bad about you. It comes with the territory. When you’re competing, someone has to win, someone has to lose … I’m going to stand behind him.”

Sugar Shane Mosley expressed his thoughts, telling HipHollywood that Broner is a “real champion”. “I take the good out of it. I seen a young kid who had a great chin, had a lot of heart. He got knocked down, got back up and fought all the way to the end.”

Jamie Foxx also weighed in, telling us that it’s about being humbled. “Sometimes the universe will humble us, but you know, brush it off and come back,” Foxx explained.

      I am so glad that Marcos Rene Maidana whooped his ass. He really did deserve it for all the unnecessary comments that he made toward Maidana, and toward Hispanics in general. He said things that not even Floyd MayWeather had said throughout his career. Broner took it to another level , and degraded Maidana’s culture, and race by making comment about how he acts stupid that he doesn’t know English and how on December 16th he was gonna teach him some English by starting of saying “Broner beat my ass”. Furthermore on December 16th we saw who kicked whos ass and who’s the better boxer, champion, role model, and man. Pay back is a bitch. You run your mouth so much that karma got back to you. Also I do believe that Maidana should not even give him a chance, and instead give move on to bigger, and better things because I can assure you that if it was the other way around Broner would not have given Maidana another chance; Especially seeing how badly and unprofessionally he took his loss. As one of the analyst said that night on ShowTime…” I’m going to give Broner the benefit of the doubt that he was hurt so he storms out of the ring, but you don’t have a problem with the show boating, the trash talking, and the disrespectful comments … but at the end of the night when you lose and it doesn’t go your way stay in the ring and take the loss like a true professional”(Showtime analyst Brian kennedy ). Lastly but not least Maidana is the Problem Solver

    Broner got his ass handed too him. the crowd hated him and would have cheered if maidana had gutted him,which he almost did if Broner hadn’t feigned injury when M gave him a little head butt. He was almost out.. Boxing fans want to see courage and honor not some lame ass moron with a hair brush.

    Broner needed his ass kicked. He’s a terrible role model. I hope the next guy woops his ass again…

  • Steve Perry

    Broner is the furthest thing from being a “true champion”. He’s a classless fool who needed to get his ass handed to him.
