At one point, Adrien Broner was one of the best pound-for-pound boxers in the world. The Cincinnati native, a former four-division world champion, was unbeaten in the first five years of his career and seemed well on his way to becoming one of the greats.

But over the course of his career, Broner has had numerous violations of the law and in the years following his first defeat, he got more attention for the things he did off the ropes, including this recent fiasco that landed him in jail. The 31-year-old, who last lost to Manny Pacquiao in 2019, apparently lost the millions and millions of dollars he made in his career and certainly didn’t look like the fighter he was in his last three fights.

Here’s a look at the rise and fall of Adrien Broner.

Adrien Broner’s boxing career

Adrien Broner was born in Cincinnati in 1989 and started boxing at the age of six. As an amateur, he won 300 times. He made his professional debut as a super featherweight two months before his 20th birthday and hit five straight knockout games to begin his career. Broner won the WBO Inter-Continental super featherweight crown in March 2011 by teeing off Daniel Ponce de Leon and winning the regular WBO super featherweight title in November.

A year later, he won the WBC lightweight title by defeating Antonio DeMarco, and six months later he won the WBA welterweight crown with a win over Paulie Malignaggi, which raised his career record to 27-0 and took him three titles different points gave classes. However, on his first defense of the welterweight title in December 2013, he was beaten by outsider Marcos Maidana.

Adrien Broner sought a rematch with Maidana, who instead took a big payday to fight Floyd Mayweather. Broner was on that card in May 2014 but had turned to light welterweight. He won three straight bouts before returning to welterweight, which resulted in a loss to Shawn Porter in June 2015. Less than four months later, he dropped back and won the WBA welterweight title by defeating Khabib Allakhverdiev.

However, he was stripped of his title for not losing weight in his next fight, in which he defeated Ashley Theophane via TKO. In February 2017 he fought Adrian Granados in catchweight because he had weight problems again during training camp, which he won. That was Adrien Brroner’s last victory.

In July 2017, Broner was overtaken by Mikey Garcia and suffered the third loss of his career. 10 months later he fought Jessie Vargas for a 12-round tie and didn’t look particularly sharp. In January 2019, on his third welterweight return, Broner landed just 50 punches, the lowest amount of his career, in a unanimous 12-round decision loss to Manny Pacquiao.

He had numerous violations of the law

As mentioned earlier, Adrien Broner has had numerous problems with the law throughout his career. Even before making his pro debut, he was charged with aggravated robbery and crime in 2007, but acquitted on all charges. Another charge was brought against him that year, but they were also dismissed.

He was arrested on various incidents in 2008 for illegally carrying a revolver and intimidating a witness. He was arrested in 2010 for robbery and in 2012 for assault. In March 2016, he was accused of assaulting and robbing a man outside a bowling alley, and he surrendered to police. The charges were later dismissed, but he was sentenced to 30 days in prison for arriving late and drunk for a hearing.

In October 2016, Adrien Broner was charged with battery misconduct after allegedly suffocating a waitress in Las Vegas. Almost a year later, back in Vegas, he got into an argument while shooting with fans. He pushed a female companion and then landed a large right hand on a man who apparently molested him and hit him coldly.

In February 2018, Broner was booked for a sexual offense on a misdemeanor in Atlanta, but it was an incident later that year that he is currently in jail on.

Following an incident in June 2018 in which a woman claimed Adrien Broner threw herself on her and forced her to kiss him, the former four-division champion pleaded guilty and was given parole.

The woman also filed a civil lawsuit and in December 2019 Broner was sentenced to pay $ 830,000 in damages. A month later, Broner took to Instagram and asked his fans for financial help. Throughout 2020, he missed several payments for the verdict and recently filed documents claiming he only wagered $ 13 on his name.

But on Halloween weekend, Broner showed large stacks of money on Instagram that left him in a prison cell in Cuyahoga County, OH until Wednesday afternoon. TMZ reported on Nov. 3 that Judge Nancy Margaret Russo Broner grilled about where the money came from and what he did with it before she despised him in court.

Broner, who says the money was sent to him by friends and used to pay bills, has been ordered to remain in jail “until he and his lawyers are able to provide answers and documents to help devise a plan setting up for Broner will pay off the verdict against him. reported that Russo released Broner on Wednesday after his legal team agreed to provide the court with a copy of a contract stating that Adrien Broner will earn a significant wallet by fighting in January 2021 should give enough money to satisfy the appraisal.
