Boxing star Adrien Broner recently lashed out at Jay Z and Roc Nation Sports for their offer of a five-year, $40 million contract. Speaking with TMZ Sports about the deal and his decision to turn it down, Broner explained why he felt slighted by the offer.
“I mean, you know, they sent an email whatever,” he started. “You know, Jay Z didn’t do it literally. They shot the email or whatever, I wasn’t happy with it. The capacity of the contract was $40 million for five years, that’s just bullshit.”
“I mean, it is what it is,” he added. “At the end of the day, I felt disrespected. If you gon’ come to me and tell me that I’m gonna fight two times a year getting $8 million a year for five years straight. You got me fucked up. I’m not old. I’m scheduled to fight four times this year.”
Asked to provide his own annual salary requirements, Broner went on to tell Jay Z to “stop sending your workers to come talk to me.”
“I mean, I don’t want to shoot no numbers out there,” he said. “Like I wanted to tell him, and hopefully this get to him, stop sending your workers to come talk to me. I’m a boss, man. Bosses talk to bosses.”
At the end of the interview, when asked if he considered the deal a possibility of getting closer to Roc Nation singer Rihanna, Broner said, “Man, fuck Rihanna.”
“No disrespect,” said. “Listen man, Rihanna ain’t gon’ make me no dollars. She don’t make no dollars for me. At the end of the day she gon’ give me some pussy and that’s it.”
