American boxer Adrien Broner had been stunning the boxing world with his exceptional performances inside the ring. He has been the holder of multiple world championships in boxing. However, Broner has been inactive in the sport for the last few years, which has made fans forget about him. He recently made some comments about a boxer he wants to ‘fu*k up’.

Adrien Broner was slated to fight Omar Figueroa Jr. in August. However, the former pulled out from the battle due to mental health issues. But, he recently made some remarks about a fight with Conor Benn. Broner and Benn had been rumored to fight earlier. Even Benn had revealed that he wants a fight with Broner.

He tested positive for a banned substance, which was developed to increase female fertility. But when used by males, it increases testosterone levels significantly. Take a look at what Broner has to say about Benn.
