- On July 20th, 2012, Broner weighed in at 3 1/2 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."
- Broner began boxing at the age of nine and came up in the same gym as 2000 United States 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.
