Adrien Broner Feels He Was Robbed In Decision Loss To Cobbs

In just his third fight in the past five years, welterweight fighter Adrien “The Problem” Broner (35-5-1, 24 KO’s) dropped a unanimous decision loss to Blair “The Flair” Cobbs (17-1-1, 10 KO’s). Yet, as has been his habit in losing affairs, Broner was adamant about his belief that he was actually the true victor. This notion flies in the face of the facts that he was outworked, outpunched, knocked down and while seemingly suffering a torn shoulder, fractured elbow, and an ejected tooth.

Nevertheless, Broner was captured on tape by EsNews in the locker room area fuming about how he did enough to come out on top.

“I was coming forward the whole time! He didn’t outscore me – none of that! That shit is crazy! That nigga did not beat me, bruh! That’s crazy. I know what’s going on though! I’m going to the hospital.”


To Broner’s credit, he did make more of a contest of the bout in the final rounds when Cobbs began to slow down a bit. If his alleged in-ring injuries turn out to be legitimate, then that will also add new wrinkles to this ongoing saga. Going forward it, will also be interesting to see if Broner opts to continue on with his career.

As previously mentioned, the four-division champion has been frightfully inconsistent in staging professional bouts. Without question, inactivity and clear ring rust played a large part in his overall demise versus Cobbs. Provided that Broner remains active and gets a few wins under his belt, he could likely still make a bit of noise in the sport.

There is no doubt that The Problem is still a major name and commands a great deal of attention. Yet, there is also no doubt that this largely one-sided defeat will hurt his future marketability. Therefore, if Broner chose to soldier on, he will certainly have a steep uphill battle back to establishing himself as a credible threat at the top levels of his division. So, for the moment, we will just have to wait and see what The Problem decides to do with this career from this point forward.
