Adrien “The Problem” Broner definitely had some problems with some people heading into Wednesday’s final press conference for his much-anticipated bout with Manny Pacquiao at the MGM Grand Arena this weekend.

“I’m pissed off, for real. Coming here doing this press conference in this little ass room,” Broner announced to the media gathered at the David Copperfield Theater. “They didn’t spend money on our shit like our fight ain’t nothin. I see what they’re trying to say, but they won’t do this shit anymore after I win this fight,” Broner added.

On Saturday night, Sep. 10, Nicaragua’s Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez overcame a spirited effort from former champion Carlos “Principe” Cuadras, winning a unanimous decision inside of the Forum in Inglewood, Calif.

Gonzalez (46-0, 38 KO’s) and Cuadras (35-1-1, 27 KO’s) gave the estimated 6,714 partisans in attendance a great show that including plenty of back-and-forth action. After 12 rounds of action, scores of 117-111, 116-112, and 115-113 were read in Gonzalez’s favor, as he captures the WBC super flyweight title, his fourth belt in as many weight classes.

Photos from the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif. as two-division world champion Timothy Bradley (32-1-1, 12 KO’s) pulls out a 12-round unanimous decision victory over previously-undefeated junior welterweight titlist Jessie Vargas (26-1, 9 KO’s).

In a very competitive and fast-paced matchup, Bradley was a little too busy for Vargas, but had to survive a big scare in the final round when he was rocked in the closing seconds. The fight was stopped seven seconds prematurely in the final frame by referee Pat Russell, all the reason enough for Vargas and his team to cry foul and call for a rematch.

The matchup, for the vacant WBO welterweight title, will see whether Vargas can live up to all the expectations that were bestowed upon him early in his career.

It’s been a few years since we crossed paths with undefeated Mexican star Gilberto “Zurdo” Ramirez.

Inside the doors of Able Sanchez’s Summit Gym in Big Bear, Calif. is when I first remember seeing Ramirez and his team, as they were in camp working with Gennady Golovkin and a slew of other prospects, contenders, and champions.
