Despite his numerous attempts at restoring his former glory in the boxing world, nothing much has changed for Adrien Broner. Even the boxing world has accepted that Broner may never fight the big fights again. However, that doesn’t stop ‘The Problem ’ from training his very best at the gym. 

Broner has been very vocal about making a return! First, he challenged Devin Haney to a fight but was disappointed by Haney’s father. He even shined a light on the possibility of fighting Ryan Garcia, but that’s unlikely to happen. Meanwhile, the former four-division world champion appeared in a clip shared by Boxing Kingdom on social media today.

Turning to X (formerly Twitter), the folks at Boxing Kingdom shared the clip of Broner hitting the double-end bag in his gym. They captioned the tweet, “Adrien Broner looking strong and fast in the gym today.” Broner last fought Bill Hutchinson in June of last year and has failed to appear in the ring ever since.

Even that fight was two years after he fought Jovanie Santiago, winning both fights via unanimous decision. Broner’s prolonged absence from the ring has left fans with little hope for his return to glory as a former champion. However, things got worse for Broner when the training clip came to light today – forget being impressed – fans took digs and made fun of ‘The Problem.’

Marcos Maidana sends his regards!

Due to Broner’s antics over the years, he has lost the fans who did come to his support, so the comment section of this post was full of critics. While some commented on Broner’s physique, others blatantly bullied the former champion. One user suggested there should be a correction in the caption, claiming it should be changed to Broner “looking fat.” 

Someone else asserted Broner was the biggest waste of talent in the history of boxing. It’s worth mentioning that during his prime, Broner moved towards a variety of endeavors beyond boxing and indulged in a flashy, alcohol-filled lifestyle, which many claimed was the reason behind his downfall. 

Another user decided to comment on Broner’s physique, claiming Broner might not be able to get rid of his belly.

The next user suggested Broner should stay away from alcohol if he wants to get in shape.

Meanwhile, one user brought in a blast from the past. The user sarcastically suggested Marcos Maidana send his regards. It was, of course, a dig at Adrien Broner – since Maidana took away Broner’s zero and, in a way, started Broner’s downfall.
