In which Complex Sports tackles the issues of the day, in 100 words or fewer.

Adrien Broner's loss was entertaining but not shocking. 

Think about it. The cracks in Broner's throne were starting to show with his last fight. He took Paulie Malignaggi's girl, but the fight itself was unimpressive. Broner's trash talk was massive even with a split decision. That's why he's so open to slander; Broner's talk was hubris from that point.

Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s shit talk is part of his legend, but not as much as how he dominated a lot of his opponents. When you talk as much as Broner, you don't just walk the talk; you have to own it.
