Adrien Broner has become the latest man to gain national attention for making racially motivate comments. After defeating Carlos Moline on May 3, Adrien went on a rant which included racial comments directed at his opponent. His words resulted in his immediate suspension by boxing’s governing body — the World Boxing Council.

Adrien Broner, 24, is known in the boxing world by his nickname, “The Problem.” Well, he’s certainly caused a big one for himself after by going on a rant that included racial remarks made against Carlos Molina, who he defeated in a fight on May 3. His words got him a quick suspension from boxing’s governing body — the World Boxing Council.

Adrien went on the Mike Gill morning show, on 97.3 ESPN in South Jersey, and said, “I’m the can man. I just beat the f**k out of a Mexi-can.” 

 

Mike was shocked and tweeted: “had him on the radio — he’s a jerk.”

Boxing’s governing body, the World Boxing Council, issued this statement when they officially suspended Adrien:

“The World Boxing Council holds human equality as its banner and will not accept a former WBC champion to make racially offensive statements.
Since words have different meanings and can be interpreted in different ways , the WBC is issuing this open letter to Adrien Broner to either clarify what he meant with his words or to issue a public apology if those words were intended to be despective and offensive.
Adrien Broner is hereby suspended from participating in any WBC sanctioned Championship and will be excluded from the WBC Ratings until the time he  makes a public apology satisfactorily to the public of the world.”

Adrien won with almost no opposition, defeating Carlos by winning on all three judges’s score cards. He scored 100-90, 99-91, 98-82 according to ESPN.com’s Dan Rafael.

However, his victory was overshadowed by his disgusting racist remarks.

“The Problem” has been down this road before and the boxing community has now come to expect nothing less from Adrien.

After he defeated Pauli Maliguaggi in June 2013, he famously made fun of him saying, “I left with his belt and his girl.” He also talked about another of Pauli’s ex-friends.

HollywoodLifers, what did you think about Adrien’s comments? Do you think his remarks warranted a suspension from boxing? Let us know.

I believe he should be fined and suspended. It may have not he racist to some people but it is for others. Boxing fans are mainly Hispanic and are mainly from mexico. If I was Mayweather I would be ashamed of him having him as one of his fighter and promoting him. He is a horrible boxer anyways

Ya see whatcha did there? You made a comment about boxing fans that is racist. There are fans of boxing that span every race. There are also people of every race who are racist against some other race than their own and plenty of people of every race who are offended by racism when they see or hear it committed by any race against any race. Enter John Kerry (Cohen) who is coming off a tad anti-Semitic as of late and his family changed their name from their Jewish roots of Cohen to Kerry when they came through Ellis Isle. See, a person can even be racist against their own bloodline.

Absolutely should be suspended. He needs to zip it! Where are all these bigots coming from, who say things then start denying what they meant. The World should band together and send a clear message that there is no room for such nonsense and rubbish behavior.

He didn’t make a racist comment. He referred to where they were from. Would you still want him booted if he fought a Canadian and said this?

There us plenty of room in the world of boxing for outrageous characters and even outlandish trash talk. We don’t expect boxers to be angels. Boner crossed the line. He seems to be incapable of controlling his thoughts. I got the distinct impression that Boner thinks like a racist. I like the ban and the conditions for reinstatement.

I thought being a Mexican was being a citizen of a nation-state. I didn’t know that Mexican was a race.

“Clarify” his remarks? Isn’t it obvious what he meant? He was insulting the guy & being a bigot! Donald Sterling wasn’t asked to “clarify” his bigoted statements (which were made in private, not on the air). This guy s/b suspended for a year at least.
