Former WBA lightweight champion Brandon “Bam Bam” Rios (31-0-1, 23 KO’s) sent out a tweet to WBC lightweight champion Adrien “The Problem” Broner (26-0, 22 KO’s) earlier today that shocked the boxing community.
Rios Tweeted, “You won’t do s*** cause I’m not 4 foot. You was the one open your mouth and said my name. F****, come and try and knock this tree down.”
This had to do with Broner’s recent TKO win over the smaller Gavin Rees on February 16th. Broner responded back
“A homie stop talking that f*** s*** you cool people’s but I will beat the f*** out you, boy. Better worry about your next fight!”
This is a fight many boxing fans would love to see, however there are several problems keeping it from happening. The first is they are in different weight classes as Broner just recently moved to the 135 lb class and Rios currently fights at 140 lbs. The two can fight at a catch weight, but this leads to the main reason this fight wont happen anytime soon.
Broner is promoted by Golden Boy and Rios by Top Rank. These two promotion companies refuse to work with each other, which has led to downfall of boxing. By not allowing Rios and Broner to fight along with other potentially huge fights to happen has disappointed boxing fans over the past few years.
These are two of the biggest trash talkers in boxing and not only do they talk the talk, but they back it up.
