Adrien Broner bails on Aug. 20 boxing bout citing mental neatly being, indignant Omar Figueroa requires proof

4-time boxing champion Adrien Broner was expected to make his return to the “sweet science” against former WBC lightweight champion Omar Figueroa this Sat. night (Aug. 20, 2022) at Seminole Onerous Rock Lodge & On line on line casino in Hollywood, Fla.; however, that fight has now been scrapped after “The Problem” offered his withdrawal.

“Sorry to all my fans on the other hand mental neatly being is exact and I’m not about to play inside the ring,” Broner wrote on Instagram. “I’ve watched a large number of other folks die collaborating in with their boxing profession and that’s the reason something I won’t do, merely pray for me. I really like the sport of boxing quite a lot of to not give my all and I believe Like I were given right here up temporary faster than because of my ideas wasn’t 100% there and I’ll be damned if I make that mistake over again. I wish to make some changes for the easier as an alternative of being excited about other folks’s feelings and enjoyable them when in all reality I have now not anything else to finally end up to no one.”

Broner (34-4-1, 1 NC) was able to get once more into the win column with a unanimous resolution victory over Jovanie Santiago once more in early 2021, completing a three-fight winless streak that spotted him enroll a attract opposition to Jessie Vargas along with resolution losses to Mikey Garcia and Manny Pacquiao.

“I’m a four-time global champion in 4 different weight classes and if I certainly not lace up a few gloves over again I believe love it’s safe to say I will be inducted into the Boxing Hall Of Recognition,” the 33 year-old Broner persisted. I have to step once more and overcome this obstacle faster than I am going put my existence on the line inside the sq. circle over again. I know I’m far from being finished with the sport. SEE Y’ALL SOON.”

Figueroa, 32, is looking bullshit:

“As we all know, my fight against that MF Broner is off,” Figueroa wrote on social media. “Now I don’t ideas because of this is something we expected so we had plans in motion to mitigate plenty of the aftermath. What truly pisses me off is that now this MF wishes to use mental neatly being as a FKN excuse. That I have a topic with because of that’s BS. You don’t get to cry mental neatly being now, MF! Not pronouncing you don’t suffer from mental neatly being issues, we will all help you know do, merely don’t use it as an excuse now after you’ve been undisciplined and not taking this fight [and] training camp severely.”

Figueroa (28-2-1) is taking a look to rebound from back-to-back resolution losses to Yordenis Ugas (2019) and Abel Ramos (2021) on the other hand it appears “Panterita” will have to wait just a little bit longer. No word however on whether or not or now not or not promoters will try to salvage his Broner fight for later this year.

Or ever.

“If it truly is mental neatly being, please show us the proof you went and sought professional lend a hand,” Figueroa persisted. “You love to post your entire shit on social media, why not let us in in your mental neatly being recovery? You don’t get to undermine mine and a large number of other journeys and struggles with mental neatly being because of your undisciplined and childish dumb ass! Fuck you Broner! Merely after I idea you couldn’t stoop any lower.”

Something tells me now we don’t have any longer heard the remaining of this feud.
