Adrien Broner (born on Jul. 28, 1989 in Cincinnati, Ohio) is a professional boxer. He is recognized as a champion in four different weights, and has won the WBC lightweight, WBO super featherweight and WBA welterweight and super lightweight belts. At the age of 23, Adrien became a champion in three-divisions. He began boxing at the age of 6-years-old to avoid a life of crime on the streets. His fighting style has drawn comparisons to Floyd Mayweather Jr. because he’s a quick puncher who has mastered the move of the shoulder roll that makes Floyd so deadly. Adrien shares the same colorful life out of the ring as Floyd.
