Former junior lightweight, lightweight, welterweight and super-lightweight world champion is doing time

ADRIEN ‘THE PROBLEM’ BRONER – the four-weight world champion tipped to replace Floyd Mayweather as boxing’s biggest star – has been jailed.

The troubled America is serving three days behind bars for contempt of court after pleading guilty to a disorderly conduct charge from an incident back in 2014.

And in January 2016 he was charged with felonious assault and aggravated robbery following the incident in a bowling alley.

Eventually the charges were dropped after the victim failed to attend two court hearings.

He is a former world champion at junior lightweight, lightweight, welterweight and super-lightweight – and Ring Magazine once rated him as the fifth best pound-for-pound fighter in the world.

Adrien Broner was found to be OK after his worrying posts on social media

And, in October 2016, the hard man suffered a social media meltdown when he started threatening to commit suicide.

The supreme talent posted a photo of a gun with the caption: “I’m going home. I love ya’ll.”

Other tragic messages read: “3pm I’m doing it. I’m sorry to my family and friends but I don’t want to be here no more. This s*** too much.”

His final post on Instagram came 25 minutes before 3pm eastern time in America and read chillingly: “25 minutes.”

Thankfully his partner Arie Nicole took to Snapchat to send a message shortly after that read: “Adrien is OK.”

Broner looked destined to be the heir to Mayweather’s crown – with the bling and bravado to match the skill – hut the Money Man has a new protégé now.

Gervonta Davis has replaced Broner as promoter Mayweather’s hottest prospect after he retained his IBF super-featherweight title with a brilliant win over Liam Walsh in London on Saturday night.
