Adrien Broner's back at it. And by 'back at it' I don't mean boxing so much as I mean how he's made some headlines for throwing change in the air at a Walmart. You can watch Broner "do it for the gram" below.

I'm AB I don't need no change......#AboutBillions

A video posted by Adrien Broner (@adrienbroner) on

Broner is scheduled to face Floyd Mayweather-promoted Ashley Theophane on April 1st on SpikeTV, and ahead of their scheduled fight Mayweather gives his thoughts on Broner's style of promotion to FightHype.

On Broner's Walmart shenanigans:

"I think fighters hurt themselves sometimes. Someone showed me the clip of Adrien Broner the other day. He was in Walmart and what was so crazy about the video when I looked at it, it kind of hurt my feelings. The person gave him his change back, I guess he had bought something and he threw the money or the change up in the air like, 'Why are you giving me change back? You don't know who I am?' Actually, a lot of people in the store didn't know who he was. They was looking like, 'Who are you?' And then, it's so crazy, if you're at such a high status and you reached a certain level, you're supposed to have people going to Walmart for you. You go to places like Walmart to save money. Of course you got to realize this, he's still young and he's still learning, but before you know it, it's going to be too late. I mean, I didn't really understand it. At the end of the day, he's hurting himself; he's not helping himself. He has a lot to learn. He has a lot to learn."

On Broner not sticking around for press interviews after the press conference:

"You got to realize this, it's so many top media outlets in D.C. because that's where the White House is at. That's where the President lives. When you got a chance to take things to the next level when you in Washington D.C. where there's so many media outlets, you supposed to take full advantage of that. And you know, you shouldn't take nothing for granted."
