Adrien Broner has issued a public plea for help just days after he was filmed shoving a woman and knocking out a man while walking down the Las Vegas strip. In a series of instagram posts, Broner pleads for help, claims he hasn’t slept in two days and says he just needs someone to talk to.
The messages Broner shared are eerily similar to the posts he made in 2016 when he hinted that he was contemplating suicide. Floyd Mayweather has acted as Broner’s mentor over the years and even took him into his home when the 28-year old boxer was in dire need of assistance, much like he is now.
The disturbing video footage captured in Las Vegas on Friday night is just one of Broner’s many problems outside of the ring within the last year. Last October, Broner was charged with misdemeanor battery for choking a waitress at Drai’s Nightclub in Las Vega, and he was also arrested earlier this year stemming from a warrant for his arrest as a result of a crazy incident in which his vehicle was shot at several times. Broner has also faced previous robbery charges and was arrested for allegedly beating up a guy at a bowling alley in early 2016.
The four-time champion last fought in July at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn against Mikey Garcia for the WBC Diamond light welterweight title. Broner lost that fight via unanimous decision.
