"I had to start it off. He didn't want to say nothing to me. They hyped him up...I told them to go get him. When I walked into the weigh-in, they forgot Ward and Dawson was even fighting. The whole crowd switched to Adrien Broner and they said something about Robert Guerrero being there...He knows he can't get close to Floyd, so he's trying to get to the closest thing closest to Floyd, and that's me," stated former super featherweight champion Adrien Broner, who talked about the confrontation he had with interim WBC welterweight champion Robert Guerrero at the official weigh-in for Ward vs. Dawson. Check out what else he had to say!
BT: What's going on, Twin?
AB: What's happening?
BT: Shoot, you tell me. What's up with Guerrero?
AB: You heard what I told him. Send the contract, I'll sign it. He don't want to do nothing. He's just trying to make a name for himself. He needs a fan base. He a bum, man. He don't want to fight.
BT: It seemed like a pretty brief conversation, but it definitely got the boxing community buzzing.
AB: He didn't even want to say nothing to me. He walked up to me and tried to shake my hand, so I shook his hand and said, "What's up, man? You know me, I know you. You know, you already know what it is." I had to start it off. He didn't want to say nothing to me. They hyped him up.
BT: Did you know he was there?
AB: Yeah, I told them to go get him. When I walked into the weigh-in, they forgot Ward and Dawson was even fighting. The whole crowd switched to Adrien Broner and they said something about Robert Guerrero being there. I said, "Go find him. Where he at? I'll go look for him." So they went to go find him while everybody had crowded around and forget about the weigh-in. They just knew Adrien Broner was in the building and it was over from there. He didn't want no problems, man.
BT: You don't think he was really serious about making a fight? You think he was just trying to get more exposure for himself?
AB: All he's trying to do is at every fight, have them [fans] be like, "What's up with Adrien Broner or the Floyd fight?" He knows he can't get close to Floyd, so he's trying to get to the closest thing closest to Floyd, and that's me.
BT: Is that a fight you see happening in the future, and if so, would jumping to 147 be a problem or would you prefer to do it at 140?
AB: Honestly, I really don't care, man. The problem is Adrien Broner; that's the problem! I ain't worried about dude. Don't nobody know him. They giving away tickets at his fights. I'm selling tickets at my fights.
BT: (Laughing) Well, switching gears to who I think is probably going to be your next opponent, I assume you're in attendance to check out the DeMarco-Molina fight.
AB: If they fight me. I told DeMarco today that I hope he wins. He said, "No speak English." I said, "You'll speak English after a couple of jabs and hooks." He had some interpreters come, so I told him, you know, I hope he wins so we can make a big fight. He said, "Oh, I love watching you fight. You're so good. You're so entertaining," this and that. Basically, he knows what the fuck is going on. It is what it is, man. They will see. I'll be ready to wrap one of these motherfuckers. I'm ready right now, too.
BT: No doubt. You were out with Devon [Alexander] training for a little while too, right?
AB: Yeah, I been in shape. They better go get in some shape. I ain't worried about none of them motherfuckers; I'm in the mall right now shopping. You know, man, we don't pack bags; we just shop when we get there.
