Adrien Broner responds to Floyd Mayweather in 10-minute rant

Adrien Broner says he hasn't been able to get Floyd Mayweather on the phone, so he has to take to social media to respond to Floyd's criticism.

Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

Well, we all should have known it was only going to be a matter of time before Adrien Broner was to respond to Floyd Mayweather's harsh criticism, and boy oh boy, he didn't disappoint. Broner clearly took offense to Floyd essentially saying that Broner shouldn't even be proud of his most recent world title and now Broner comes back guns blazing.

Broner began by stating that he's been trying to reach out to Floyd in order to talk things out privately, but with Floyd going incommunicado on Broner, he's been forced to take his ranting to social media. Broner suggests it's hypocritical for Floyd to take aim at the circumstances under which Broner recently won a world title in his fourth weight class when Floyd himself told Broner that he should be taking the biggest rewards for the least risk. Then Broner goes on to question Floyd's logic of saying that if he disrespects Floyd, that's really like disrespecting Al Haymon.

"And then you said some sh*t like, if I'm disrespecting you I'm disrespecting Al Haymon, but, that's a contradicting ass saying because Al Haymon the one who got me the f*cking fight! I ain't go out and pick these mothaf*ckas...I don't know these mothaf*ckas from Russia, I never even heard of him."

"So with you to saying that, that you'd be ashamed, you wouldn't call yourself a world champion, you the one disrespecting Al Haymon! And you said if I'm disrespecting Al Haymon then I'm disrespecting you disrespecting yourself! How you want someone to respect you and you disrespecting yourself?! Come on, Floyd. This sh*t lame bruh."

But no, Broner didn't end there, in fact this video is about 10 minutes long...

"What you did wasn't no player sh*t, that wasn't no live sh*t, that was some lame f*ck boy sh*t."

I can only imagine that this response will intensify the war of words between the two men, and I can't lie, I can't wait to see where it leads. This soap opera stuff is like a guilty pleasure.
