Broner: Since I took my loss everyone feels like Floyd Mayweather took a loss

Former world champion Adrien Broner spoke with Brian Kenny during Saturday’s Showtime telecast. Here are some highlights:

Regarding his first loss last December to Marcos Maidana…
“That’s not the first time I took defeat. It might not be the last time. But God has got something in store for me. I am set for a major comeback. Maidana did what he was supposed to do. He threw big shots. I was in a hell of a fight. It comes with the territory. That’s boxing. Sometimes you don’t get hit, but sometimes you do. It’s not about that. It’s about how you get up. And I got up and fought to the last.”

On exercising a rematch clause for an immediate return fight with Maidana…
“Of course. I am a fighter. If I go on, I know I can beat anybody. If I go on, what will they say? ‘Oh, At least Maidana beat him.’ I’m the closest thing to Floyd Mayweather, so since I took my loss everyone feels like Floyd Mayweather took a loss because I’m the closest thing to him. And still to this day I’m the closest thing to him.”

On his quick exit after the fight…
“I have to say I am sorry to my fans for walking out of the ring. I was very emotional. Like I said, it was my first time in that situation. I am sorry to my fans. And I am looking forward to the rematch.”

On dry humping Maidana during the fight…
“I like putting on a show, losing or not. I’m still gonna put on a show. That’s why a lot of people want to see me. Whether you come to see me lose or come to see me win, you’re gonna get a helluva show.”

On fan reaction to his loss…
This is the best thing that happened in my career because now I see who’s with me and who isn’t. This made me see a lot of things. One thing for sure, I always got family. I always love them and they love me.”
