“I’m really not too big on MMA,” said Broner. “I really don’t look at it as a real sport because anybody can come into MMA and learn that. You can learn that. Listen, you can’t just come in to boxing and be a world champion. You’ve got to be born with it.”
“Like you,” he said to the interviewer. “Right now, you can go into MMA, learn all the submission moves and be a world champion. It doesn’t matter how long it takes. I don’t give a f— what you do, you can try to come over to boxing, and you won’t ever be a world champion. I’m not disrespecting you, but I’m just saying, that’s how it works.”

Adrian Broner is half a retard. Name one UFC champ that didnt have a background in martial arts or wrestling. Seriously, name a professional sports athlete that didn't have to learn something to be great at their sport. That guy is a classless retard.

He is right though you know. Not anybody can be a champion in boxing. Sadly,it's for all the wrong reasons though.

I've not heard of this guy before this quote, just like I didn't hear of Tyson Fury before he called out Cain Velasquez. Uneducated / attention-seeking children are just that.

Broner is the type of guy who will never admit that there is a sport full of guys who would kick his ass in a street fight.

Wow. Adrian Broners a pretty big deal in the world of boxing. He's my pick to be the guy to beat Mayweather. He was a 3 weight world champion at 23 years old.
Mayweathers what 36 years old and 44-0?
Broners 24 and 27-0

Not only do I think Broners gonna be the guy to beat Mayweather but he'll go up in weight to do it.

Unlike Tyson Fury, this guy doesn't seem like an attention seeker to me. I think he believes what he's saying. Only his point makes very little sense.

A guy in my high school was a golden gloves champion. Tried going out for wrestling and didnt last a week. Now I admit, I dont know anything about golden gloves boxing or how hard it is to be a champion. All I'm saying is that we had big expectations for him and this boxing champion couldnt hang one week in the wrestling room.

Mma encompasses many styles of fighting, including boxing. So if mma isnt a sport, then boxing is definitely not a sport.

He couldn't finish Paulie and he said he won't fight Floyd.
