Watch the live stream for the final presser between former champions Adrien Broner and Jesse Vargas. The stream opens at 12:30 p.m. and includes the undercard featuring Hugo Centeno taking on Jermall Charlo, and Gervonta Davis vs. Jesus Cuellar.

Adrien Broner is mere days away from a crossroads bout against Jesse Vargas. But instead of being focused on that fight, Broner has his eyes set on a more unlikely foe in troll rapper extraordinaire Tekashi 6ix9ine.

The ill will began with 6ix9ine setting Broner’s IG on fire by commenting “clown” on a picture the former champion posted of himself and Charlamagne tha God. Considering 6ix9ine’s recent interview with the Breakfast Club, the “clown” comment was likely for Charlamagne. However, Broner immediately retorted with his own vitriol for the rainbow-haired rapper.

That was all 6ix9ine needed to post his own video challenging Broner to a $300k bet he loses to Vargas this Saturday.

Maybe the PBC needs to add 6ix9ine to the promo team? Broner vs. Vargas airs on Showtime this Saturday at 9 p.m. ET.

Adrien Broner is back in jail. The former world champion was arrested at Atlanta’s Lennox Mall late Monday evening after being accused of groping a woman.

According to BSO, Broner is accused of grabbing a woman’s genitals at the mall’s Louis Vutton store. He is being held at the Fulton County Jail with no bond.

“…units spoke with the victim who advised that she had been inappropriately groped by a male later identified as Mr. Adrien Broner,” said the Atlanta PD in a statement. “Mr. Broner denied the accusations and after being interviewed was charged with Misdemeanor Sexual Battery and transported to Fulton County Jail without incident.”

Broner’s last run-in with the law came in September when he punched a man on the Las Vegas Strip.

He is tentatively scheduled to return to the ring on April 21 against Omar Figueroa.
