A couple of days ago, famed trainer Freddie Roach posted a photo on social media of himself at the Wild Card Boxing Club posed with Adrien Broner. That led to at least some minor speculation that perhaps Broner was looking to make a trainer change, but Mike Stafford tells Michael Woods at RingTV.com that there's nothing to it:
"Everybody loves Adrien," Stafford told me, when I asked if there was any "there" there. "He’s just playing around in that picture," Stafford said. "Don’t believe the hype, AB is staying home."
Here's the photo in question, scandalous as can be:

Broner (31-2, 23 KO) is coming off of a win over Khabib Allakhverdiev on October 3, and looks set to make his first 140-pound title defense against Mayweather Promotions veteran Ashley Theophane sometime in early 2016.
