Veteran fighter. Replacement fighter. It could have been a robot fighter for all Errol Spence Jr. cared. Whoever was climbing in that ring short of a time-traveling Sugar Ray Robinson was getting put on the ground Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
His sparkly gold trunks were as gaudy as a matador’s getup, and that’s pretty much how Adrien Broner carried himself Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena as he attempted to dodge the raging bull that was Shawn Porter.
There was Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr., Adrien “About Billions” Broner and, keeping the currency theme going, Shawn Porter’s Ben Franklin-adorned, $100 bill boxers.
