Adrien Broner has challenged Floyd Mayweather to a $200 million exhibition fight.
Mayweather and Broner were once good friends but fell out when Broner made comments about Mayweather's company 'The Money Team'. Former four-weight world champion Broner even challenged Mayweather to a fight after knocking out Ashley Theophane in 2016, with Mayweather laughing at ringside.
Broner hasn't fought since defeating Jovanie Santiago in February 2021, as his career has been marred by inactivity. The 33-year-old is now urging Mayweather to continue his exhibition tour by fighting him, predicting that they could earn a whopping $200 million in the ring..
“These last couple of exhibitions that Floyd has been doing, he’s been getting threes, fours, fives, eights. He say, ‘I got 10 million, 20 million.’ Ok, cool. If that’s what he say, cool," But if me and him do an exhibition, automatically off the top, you got to give him 100 million and you’ve got to give me 100 million," Broner told the Round Da Way podcast.
Mayweather has competed in a number of exhibition fights since ending his professional career with a flawless record of 50-0. 'Money' most recently squared off against YouTuber Deji last November, dancing around and mocking the content creator before stopping him in the sixth round. The fight took place just weeks after Mayweather knocked out MMA fighter Mikuru Asakura in Japan.
The boxing legend has also sparred with former sparring partner Don Moore, YouTuber Logan Paul, and kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in exhibitions. Because of their strained relationship, Broner is skeptical that Mayweather, who plans an exhibition fight in the United Kingdom this year, will accept his offer.
"He doesn't want to see me with that [money]," Broner added. "because I already do what I do. Without the type of money he's getting, but I'm getting money though. I can't say I've personally heard him say that, but you'll hear him do an interview about me and scream 'AB is about broke'.
"I don't even speak to you, I don't talk bad about you. Every time I talk about you, I talk good about you. The only thing I ever did to him was f*** some h*** that was riding with him.
Other than that, I didn't do nothing. His kids love me, his baby momma love me. When he first met me, I was a millionaire, I was already me."
