Very few prizefighters in boxing have come along and taken the sport by storm in the way that three-division world champion Adrien Broner has over the past few years.

Possessing qualities that are both charismatic and outlandish, Broner is the type of guy you seem to either love or hate. But at the end of the day, the 23-year old Cincinnati native seems to find a way to keep spotlight shining upon him.

The latest news surrounding Broner is that of a possible clash with Argentina’s Marcos Maidana, who he likely will meet this November in Las Vegas in his first pay per view showcase. It’s a risky matchup for the ultra-confident Broner, but the type of fight that will continue his climb up boxing’s ladder if successful.

Wanting a better sense of Broner as a fighter and person, I reached out to his longtime trainer Mike Stafford to discuss a few topics related to his charge.

In this one on one, Stafford discusses Broner’s recent razor-thin victory over Paulie Malignaggi in Brooklyn, gives his thoughts on the feedback from critics, reveals whether they might train in Las Vegas this coming camp, and shares his outlook on a possible meeting between his fighter and pound for pound king Floyd Mayweather in the future.

Having all but announced himself as boxing’s torchbearer once Floyd Mayweather decides to make his exit from the sport, Adrien Broner is constantly going to be scrutinized for his actions inside of a prize ring.

So it’s not surprising that Broner is catching a little flack from his last performance this Saturday night, where he won a split-decision victory over a very determined Paulie Malignaggi inside of the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Despite Broner claiming a world title in a 3rd division at the age of 23 by securing the WBA welterweight bauble, the fact that he wasn’t able to steamroll through Malignaggi is something that caused his most ardent critics to speak out.

Giving his opinion of the fight, former world champion Brandon Rios, a man who has traded several verbal barbs with Broner in recent times, actually seemed indifferent.

By Chris Robinson

It’s well known that rumors in the boxing world spread like wildfire.

The latest bit of intrigue circulating around several forums and various social-networking sites claims that reigning WBC lightweight champion Adrien Broner recently had a rough go of it in sparring with talented 2012 Olympian Errol Spence Jr.

Reportedly the incident took place at the Mayweather Boxing Club in Las Vegas, where Spence, a junior middleweight prospect with a 4-0 (3) record, has been spotted training ahead of his May 3rd showcase at the Cosmopolitan Resort Casino.

The only problem with that rumor is that Broner doesn’t train at the gym when he is in Vegas these days, as he instead has been spotting simply soaking up the atmosphere of the gym the last few times he was in town.

Catching up with Spence recently, he dispelled the notion that he and Broner had gone rounds recently in Vegas.

By Chris Robinson

In a fight that flew under the radar, Las Vegas resident Lonnie Smith made a return to the ring last month as he met up with once-beaten Michael Perez on the Bernard Hopkins-Tavoris Cloud undercard from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

This was a crucial fight for Smith, as he was coming off of back-to-back losses to Vicente Escobedo in March of last year and to Mason Menard three months later.

And despite getting dropped by Perez in the second round, Smith showed much fortitude, rising and eventually working his way back into the fight. Several ringside accounts had Smith in control of the action in the seventh round before the fight was stopped after a clash of heads caused a nasty cut on Perez’s forehead.

The bout went to the cards, where the fight was declared a majority draw, with Smith’s ledger shifting to 14-4-3 with 10 knockouts.

And despite not getting the victory he so craved, you can tell that Smith again has his spirits back as he eyes a run in the lightweight division.
