Did Adrien Broner Cancel His NY Event Out of Fear of 6ix9in? NO! The Two are Feuding on Social Media but Showtime Says The Event Was Cancelled for Other Reasons
That escalated quickly.
These two “personalities” crossed paths on social media and it is making for some good entertainment. Neither of these guys need help bringing attention to themselves, but together they are quite the spectacle.
The beef started when 6ix9ine made a comment under a picture that Adrien posted of him and Charlamagne. Because 6ix9ine has had past issues with Charlamagne, it wasn’t clear if he was talking about Adrien or Cha. Here is a snap shot of the post and comment.
Either way, Adrien was not happy about the comment and made it clear on his Instagram account.
Not to be outdone, 6ix9ine flexed his bank rolls and said that he will be betting against Broner in the big fight this Saturday.
Adrien was scheduled to do a public workout to generate some more publicity for this weekend’s fight, when the event was suddenly cancelled. People quickly speculated that Broner might have been worried about his safety. But before Broner could defend himself a rep for Showtime did the heavy lifting.
A rep for Showtime Sports tells us that Broner didn’t back out of anything — instead, Showtime’s team changed the publicity strategy and canceled the workout for other media events.
And of course, not to be outdone Broner took to Instagram, clapped back at 6ix9ine and matched his money. He wrote the check out using 6ix9ine’s government name and posted the $300,000 check online.
Hopefully this fuels the champ because he can’t afford to lose this fight Saturday. He is coming off a lost and I truly believe that if he loses this, his career could be over.
If I’m in his camp, I would tell him at this point he needs to let it go and concentrate on the task and the man at hand. And that’s Jessie Vargas.
And if you are wondering who picks up $300K from the floor….the fool who threw it on the floor.
