Adrien Broner Sent To Jail For Violating Probation

By: Sean Crose It's happened again. Adrien Broner has found himself in trouble with the law. The fighter, who was once seen as a pound for pound level talent, and perhaps even the future heir to Floyd Mayweather's throne, has had a tough seven or so years. Riding high in the early part of the previous decade, legal troubles and some pretty big ring losses sent the man into a rut that the Cincinnati native seems to keep falling back into. Now Broner, whose nickname is "The Problem," is behind bars for a probation violation, courtesy of a Cleveland judge. Cleveland.com reports that "Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court Judge Sherrie Miday ordered Broner, 32, remanded to the county jail after a Tuesday hearing, according to court records." The order stems from an incident where Broner was said to have assaulted a woman in a night club. Miday apparently learned "that he (Broner) failed to enroll in an alcohol treatment program as part of his court-ordered probation for assaulting a woman." Broner was originally "charged with several felonies, but ultimately received probation after he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of assault." To make matters worse for Broner, he has another court date in the same court on the 26th of this month, this time regarding a civil suit launched by the same woman he is said to have assaulted. The judge in that case "will decide whether to hold him in contempt for failing to cooperate." Broner's accuser claimed he put his weight on her and kissed her forcefully at a Cleveland night club back in 2018. Needless to say, the judge in the civil case, Nancy Margaret Russo, awarded the woman eight hundred thousand dollars from Broner, money which the fighter reportedly hasn't coughed up. According to Cleveland.com, "Broner has appealed Russo’s decision to the 8th District Court of Appeals, which has not said whether it will take up the appeal." All of this is sadly less than unusual for Broner, whose life appears to be a constant state of disarray. He's earned much money in the ring, but seems to be plagued by irresponsibility and a habit of breaking the law. Broner, whose record stands at 34-4-1, last fought in February and hasn't been penciled in for another bout since that time. He has won titles in four weight divisions throughout what has been a successful, if perhaps disappointing, professional career.

Shakur Stevenson: “A Lot Of People Want To See Me Lose But It Ain’t Gonna Happen”

By: Hans Themistode Photo by Mikey Williams Shakur Stevenson is walking a mighty lonely road at the moment. Under normal circumstances, Stevenson is known as a crowd favorite. The former Olympic silver medalist has sublime boxing skills, continues to call out the best fighters in the world and more times than not, gives fans their money’s worth in the ring. However, with Stevenson taking on a more aggressive persona for his showdown against Jamel Herring this Saturday night at State Farm Arena in Atlanta Georgia, Stevenson believes he’s turned into the villain. Although Stevenson is convinced that the boxing world wants him to fail, he flashes a bright grin before explaining how little he actually cares. “I just be reading comments and seeing stuff,” said Stevenson during an interview with Seconds Out. “So I just think that a lot of people want to see me lose but they aren't going to get what they want at the end of the day.” Stevenson’s overwhelming self-confidence stems from how every single one of his contests has gone so far. Despite facing the likes of Joet Gonzalez and Christopher Diaz, to name a few, Stevenson pitched near shutouts. No matter who Stevenson has taken on, the 24-year-old has shown respect and refused to engage in trash talk, more or less. In the case of his showdown against Herring, Stevenson has pulled a complete 180. During their recent face-off, Stevenson audaciously grabbed the WBO super featherweight title of Herring while jawing back and forth with the former Marine. That in turn, saw the pair get separated by onlooking security. While Stevenson fully understands that he isn’t making any new fans with the way he’s conducting himself, in the end, he couldn’t care less. “I think because Jamel is going to play the super nice guy and the good guy and I talk a little bit more than him. They want him to win because I guess he’s showing that he’s humble and a marine but at the end of the day, that ain’t got nothing to do with the fight.” Regardless of Stevenson’s new attitude, the betting market is still in love with him. According to oddsmakers, Stevenson has been listed as high as a 10-1 favorite. The underdog status of Herring is something that the 130-pound belt holder has grown accustomed to. In his most recent trip to the ring, Herring made the betting public appear foolish as he thoroughly dominated former two-division world champion, Carl Frampton. Herring would go on to score multiple knockdowns before stopping his man in the sixth round. The win for Herring may have represented a career-best performance but Stevenson rolls his eyes at his recent accomplishment. Although he’ll saunter to the ring this Saturday night with the boxing world seemingly against him, Stevenson won’t give his naysayers anything to smile about. “I worked hard this camp. I’m in great shape, I’m confident, I’m sharp. They can keep on wishing and praying but it ain’t gonna happen.” The post Shakur Stevenson: “A Lot Of People Want To See Me Lose But It Ain’t Gonna Happen” appeared first on BoxingInsider.com.
