Adrien Broner: 'Since I lost, everybody feels like Floyd Mayweather lost'

In a rather stunning display of delusion (or just silliness, what makes for the best headline?) Adrien Broner said that his loss to Marcos Maidana makes people feel like Floyd Mayweather lost.

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

On what happened vs Maidana

"Listen, I know what went wrong for me. God had that plan already. It don't matter if I had Jesus in my corner. God had that plan. We can't stop His plan."

On anything technical

"What I need to tell everybody that isn't inside that squared circle, sometimes when you get hit with good shots, it's some shots you just don't see. You're gonna get hit with big shots. But at the end of the day, man, you know, we're ready to go back to camp. We're ready for the rematch. If we could've fought him on Sunday (the day after the fight), we would've fought him on Sunday."

On whether it's wise to go for the immediate rematch

"I'm a fighter. If I go on, I know I can beat anybody. If I (do something else), then what they say? 'Oh, at least Maidana beat him.' I'm the closest thing to Floyd Mayweather, so since I took my loss, everybody feel like Floyd Mayweather took a loss."

"Because I'm the closest thing to him. And still to this day I'm the closest thing to him. We gonna be OK. My next fight, I hope I fight Maidana, but if I don't, it's OK."
