Adrien Broner began boxing at the age of nine and came up in the same gym as 2000 US Olympians Ricardo Williams Jr. and Dante Craig. He has a twin brother named Andre. Broner fights very much in the style of his favorite fighter Floyd Mayweather Jr. with extreme confidence and flair. He utilizes a Philly shell defense, stands tall in front of his opponents, slips punches and blocks with his shoulders. He is primarily a quick counter-puncher, studies his opponents early and looks for openings to make his opponents pay with power shots.

Stripped of WBO Super Featherweight Title

On July 20th, 2012, Broner weighed in at three and a half pounds over the 130-pound limit for his fight with Vicente Escobedo and was subsequently stripped of the title. After failing to make weight, Broner said, ""I'm young. I'm 22. I'm still growing. I just feel like it's time for me to go up. After this fight, there really wouldn't be a reason for me to stay. I'm just going to go up and give the lightweights hell."
