Broner Claims He Injured Pacquiao
When looking at Manny Pacquiao’s two offerings in 2019, one can make the argument that Keith Thurman kept the fight competitive after an early knockdown by the Filipino senator.
For the other fight, Pacquiao had this year against Adrien Broner, everyone but the Cincinnatti native can say it was one-sided.
Thurman made it clear leading into fight week that he was not like Broner, telling all who will listen that he is not “AB,” and “AB” agrees with him.
“He got cooked,” Broner told FightHype.com. “Y’all tryin’ to make excuses for that bitch-ass n*gga. Talkin’ about, ‘I’m not AB. I’m not AB.’ We see that. We see. We see.”
While Thurman suffered a bloody nose, a knockdown, and a devastating body shot against Pacquiao, Broner walked away largely unscathed, while Broner claims he was ready for a night out while Pacquiao had to go to the hospital.
“Because he couldn’t hit me,” Broner said of his lack of injuries following the January fight.
“He hit me three times clear, clean. Other than that, the crowd was just roaring. That’s why he – see, after my fight, people don’t know after my fight [with Pacquiao], I tore his retina. I tore his retina. He ain’t do sh*t to me. I left out the fight looking like this [takes off glasses], ready to go to the club.”
While no news of Pacquiao suffering any type of eye injury has been reported, it came out after Thurman’s loss that he suffered a rib injury in training, which Broner refuses to give credence to.
“Man, I don’t wanna hear that sh*t,” Broner said. “It’s always an injury.”
