Adrien Broner not talking assault allegations, says no beef with Mayweather

Adrien Broner isn't answering questions about the warrant out for his arrest, and says he's got no real beef with Floyd Mayweather.

On Floyd Mayweather not being at the presser

"To be honest, ain't no beef between me and Floyd. I talk shit, I do my thing, but at the end of the day, I'm just being me. I do this in front -- when we're buy ourselves, I talk shit about Floyd, I talk shit to Floyd. But me up there saying 'Hateweather,' I'm just having fun. I hope nobody takes it seriously. At the end of the day, me and Floyd is close as ass cheeks."

On being late to the presser

"I was late because I wasn't gonna come. Usually when people have press conferences, it's to sell a fight. This fight is sold out. With or without this press conference, we gonna be fighting for a sold out crowd. The hype around it is still gonna be the same. None of this is helping me, to be honest."

On why he did show up

"I'm only here today so I won't get fined! Yeah! I got tired of people calling my phone."

On his support in DC

"As you can see, I have a great following. It's my second home. The love is gonna be crazy. Preparation for this fight has been a lot different. I really took it to the max and I'm gonna exploit all of my talent."

On Robert Easter Jr

"I don't even think he knows how good he is. He does things that still amaze me. He wonders why I'm on his neck so heavy or why I'm so tough, because I know what he's capable of. That's why I put him in this fight right here, to show people."

"I think I stepped up earlier than what he's stepping up. When I fought I Ponce De Leon, I think I was 19, and I fought against 12,500 against me. This isn't about me, right now I'm talking about Robert. I think he's gonna be ready and he's gonna put on a good show."

On his arrest warrant

"I am a four-time world champion, four different weight classes, if you have any questions about boxing, I will answer them."

On fighting on a Friday

"I'll fight on Sunday. I'll fight on a new day. I'll fight on AB Day if they make a day for me. It really don't matter. As long as my check is right, we have a ring, a referee, some significant judges, and my coach, I'm OK."

On Mayweather's comments surprising him or not

"No. The relationship me and Floyd have, we wear our feelings on our sleeves. Anything that we feel or say about each other, we don't care who hears it. At the end of the day, it's not gonna break up our relationship."

On the reports of his alleged assault

"As far as this guy not listening, next question."

On Theophane saying he'll copy past game plans against Broner

"People feel that Donald Trump shouldn't be President, but the way it's looking, he might be. Looks can be deceiving. Everybody's got an opinion, that's his opinion. But that shit don't got nothin' to do with me and his fight."

On Ashley Theophane being a concern for him

"Yes. He's a very dangerous fighter. He's got some pretty serious tattoos."
