Broner vs Vargas FULL FIGHT: April 21, 2018 - PBC on Showtime
(April 21, 2018) Four-division world champion Adrien Broner and two-division world champion Jessie Vargas fought to a highly entertaining 12-round majority draw Saturday night on SHOWTIME in the main event of SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING in front of 13,964 fans at Barclays Center in Brooklyn in an event presented by Premier Boxing Champions.
The back-and-forth battle was a tale of activity vs. accuracy. Vargas was by far the more active fighter, throwing 839 total punches, 300 more than his opponent. Yet the flashy Broner was supremely accurate, connecting on 44 percent of his power shots and 38 percent of his total punches, compared to just 27 and 24, respectively, for Vargas.
Broner (33-3-1, 24 KOs) came on strong in the second half of the fight, picking up rounds eight through 10 on all three of the judges' scorecards. The 12th round was crucial in determining the draw, which was scored 115-113 Broner and 114-114 twice. The judges agreed on eight of the 12 rounds but couldn't agree on the final round, which was ruled differently by the two judges who scored the fight a draw.
"I want to thank Jessie Vargas. He's a two-time world champion for a reason," said Broner, who was working for the first time with Kevin Cunningham as his head trainer. "He came to fight but at the end of the day, you all know I beat him. Point blank, period.
"I was connecting with rights. I got warmed up in the early portion of the fight. My trainer was a big help tonight. I want to thank Coach Cunningham as well as my original coach, Mike Stafford, for realizing I needed to do something different.
"I would love to fight Vargas again, but let's go back to my town to do it."
Vargas (28-2-1, 10 KOs) worked off the jab and was incredibly effective with his body shots in just his second fight with trainer and former world champion Mike "The Body Snatcher" McCallum.
"I thought I won the fight," Vargas said. "At the end of the day I can't argue because I was fighting on the inside of the ring so I don't know what you saw from the outside. I was landing clean blows. It was a good fight but at the end of the day I can't dispute the decision.
"It must have been a close fight for the judges to have scored it the way they did. I felt that I won the fight and I was up two rounds. I'm relying on the judges to make the right decision.”

    Broner actually won this fight. Barely but he won. He was tearing vargas up... he should of let his hands go more but his precision can be seen in Vargas face and everytime his knees would buckle. If some of these rounds were 30 secs longer Broner would of knocked him down in a couple of those rounds smh lol

    A draw! Come on, in the beginning AB was slow but towards the end he was fk’n him up.

  • ZedieLiam EL

    Floyd recognized early that AB was a got-damn 'PROBLEM" so Floyd wandered off to wherever Floyd goes after being disgusted with a boxers immaturity... Hence whats left is a self-generated - self-proclaimed delusional performer raising the brows of fans and commentators with trashy accolades and phrases of grandeur ... Now its not that AB is not regarded as a great talker- particularly when actions speak louder than words when its backed up -- but the prize in AB's 10cent Cracker-Jack 'BOX" isn't worth the cost of the peanuts and caramel Popcorn, especially after the cavities set in !! We will always love AB, but his "COULDA-WOULDA-SHOULDA done his 'HOME-WORK"excuses including the DOG ate his notebook, collectively ended with his "CHOICE" not to, make up the failing grade and 'PERFORM" on the next level of his rhetoric still resulted in another "F" whether or not the Ref's gave him the "W"... AB should be renamed to AF - "'About Failing" - Once upon a time AB was consistently considered the one to call to official gunslinger O-K Corral shoot-outs,... yet he kept showing up with dingy, unclean Butter-knives - AB has guns... but he never checked his ammo, never cleaned the barrels, checked the sights, and never filled all the chambers. - He really never drew and didn't pull out his guns because they are stuck in his holster - The fact remains - when he does pull the trigger, he shoots himself in the foot- every time - Geez !!

    Fuck, Broner drives makes me so frustrated, bc he’s prob the dumbest fighter I’ve ever seen. Here’s a guy w/ more talent than anyone except Floyd Mayweather & a couple others, but who’s scared to throw a punch. He goes rounds w/o letting his hands go, & that’s why he’s not undefeated. He’s so precise & won’t throw a punch unless he thinks it’s the perfect time to. Perfection is the enemy of greatness, bc no ones perfect, but Broner easily has the talent to be great. He just needs to get out of his own head, or start using his head 😂


      Floyd has no talent lol

    After watching this fight a second time, I have it Vargas winning 7-5. Work rate was too high and he outlanded Broner, though Broner was the harder puncher and did more damage. Close fight, the Draw was fair, I too had a swing round. A rematch would be a good fight for both.

  • EmmanzinoHD

    Broner is one the most athletic boxers I’ve ever seen. No one can disagree on that I don’t care if you hate him. His natural reflexes, crazy handspeed, crazy agility. People forget hes still fairly young. He’s up with the greatest handspeed tho (sugar ray, Roy Jones, Gary Russell and Ryan Garcia ) . I think he’s faster than Floyd.

    • Theblkwolverine89

      @EmmanzinoHD I see what you are saying now. I mostly agree with your statement at this point. Floyd is sharper than Broner ever was and that's what matters more than speed.

    • EmmanzinoHD

      @Theblkwolverine89 bro Broner is faster with his combinations than Floyd but Floyd is more accurate. I think broner has more fast twitch muscle fibres, boxing wise he’s not elite but he’s an incredible athlete.

    • Theblkwolverine89

    • Ruthless Inu
      Ruthless Inu

      @RekeMun Gaming I hear ya. I’ve always supported AB. Only thing I get disappointed with, is how much weight he puts on between fights. He’s still young and should be staying in shape between fights. Like I’ve said before, AB can’t afford to get complacent between fights because if you look at his pops, he is genetically susceptible to becoming fat.

    • RekeMun Gaming
      RekeMun Gaming

      @Ruthless Inu not disagreeing on that part but my I'm argument is that fans over do it when he lose if you would only listen to fans and not watch his fights you would think AB be getting knock out and dominated but that don't be the case that's my only agreement. And they even overhype the chino fight low-key

    • Ruthless Inu
      Ruthless Inu

      @RekeMun Gaming closer than what most would like to admit, yes. But I can say the same for so many other fights. The point is, Broner did not do enough to win that fight. Had he tried harder, he would’ve put himself in harms way and that could’ve given pac a better opportunity to hurt him. Pac thrives off of exchanges and Broner did not want that. He decided a “pick ‘em” type of fight was safer for him and in turn, he limited his own output.


    Broner vs Santiago is an interesting fight. We will see if Broner can let his hands go and win. Or Santiago becomes a new good fighter on the scene with a win.

    • DaaBoys2138

      @Tyshawn Denard Paulie fought well against him I’m not sure what fight you watched. The magic man has more heart in his pinky than AB has in his entire body... a younger Paulie could very well beat him. AB is one of the most overrated fighters of all time in terms of quality wins!

      @SuperTruthful I know, it makes me mad bc he has more talent than every one of those fighters listed. And all Paulie did when he fought him was throw a bunch of soft punches that Broner didn’t feel, & hoped Broner wouldn’t let his hands go. Fortunately, he did let his hands go just enough, but even to beat Paulie 115-113 is weak considering Broner’s ability. He should’ve K.O.’d him by the 6th round 😂
