It's not a total surprise that some friends don't stick with you through the struggle as the dozens of emotional late night Instagram and Twitter posts/subtweets will tell you. Broner isn't safe from this either. Marcos Maidana gave him his first loss of his career, and Broner admitted in an interview with Brian Kelly that the fakes exposed themselves from the real in his entourage.

This is the best thing that happened in my career because now I see who’s with me and who isn’t. A lot of friends and women stop calling and answering texts. A lot of friends wanted to see me lose. This made me see a lot of things. One thing for sure, I always got family. I always love them and they love me

Broner probably doesn't need them to begin with, but regardless, it's time to refocus before the rematch.
