Adrien Broner arrested in Las Vegas at Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury weigh-in


Adrien Broner was reportedly arrested and taken away by police outside the Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury weigh-in after refusing to leave.

It is believed that the American boxer was making efforts to get inside the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas despite him being issued with a ban from entering the arena.

The 30-year-old former four-division world champion has never been one to shy away from controversy and it seems he is back in bother with the authorities.

According to TMZ, Broner was told twice that he was not permitted to enter the property but refused to listen and was subsequently arrested by cops after being detained by hotel security.

Online footage shows the boxer being taken away in handcuffs where it is thought he was moved to the county jail to be processed.

The report adds that he is likely to be released with a misdemeanour trespassing citation.

Broner also recently made headlines late last year after being forced to pay $800,000 to a sexual assault victim.

There is no doubting his boxing ability with Floyd Mayweather previously having taken him under his wing but his career seems to have taken somewhat of a nosedive.

He currently holds a 33-4-1 professional record but has not fought since losing to Manny Pacquiao in January 2019.

‘The Problem’ is rumoured to be ready to fight Devin Haney next but nothing has been confirmed as yet.

Meanwhile, inside the MGM Grand Garden the highly-anticipated weigh-in between Fury and Wilder took place shortly after Broner’s arrest.

The two heavyweight fighters will rematch on Saturday night after their controversial draw in December 2018.

Fury weighed in three stone heavier than his opponent at 19st 7lbs (273lbs), while Wilder tipped the scales at a career-high 16st 7lbs (231lbs).

Britain’s former unified champion was first on the scales and the 31-year-old came in over 16.5lbs heavier than his first meeting with Wilder and only three pounds lighter than his previous heaviest mark of 276lbs when he fought Sefer Seferi in his comeback fight in June 2018.

Fury and Wilder had been banned from sharing a final face-off after shoving each other at the final press conference.

But the fired-up rivals still managed to give off a few final insults before they parted.
