Floyd Mayweather co-promoted Adrien Broner’s fight against Adrian Granados Saturday, but was not in attendance citing a “complication.” 

Adrien Broner fought in his hometown of Cincinnati, in front of 6,085 fans at the Cintas Center. Floyd Mayweather, Broner’s big brother (turned opp, turned big brother again), was not in attendance.

According to Broner, “Money” May had an issue with his transportation. The two did speak beforehand, however, and Mayweather offered Broner advice.

“Before I came over here, I was talking to Floyd. And he called me, and he was like – because he didn’t come today. His plane had a complication and it woulda been bad if he went in the air,” Broner said. “And he was just like, ‘AB, this guy, he wants to get his shots off, so get yours off and wrap up. … He was like, ‘You know what, man?’ You’ve got a hell of an uppercut. You need to use that mother****er more.’ ” – Boxingscene

Those “complications” must have arose in New Orleans, LA, where Mayweather attended last night’s NBA All-Star Game. Floyd’s been there all weekend, making appearances and partaking in all the other festivities entertainers and athletes partake in during All-Star Weekend.

Broner went on to win a split-decision, however, and all’s well that ends well.
