As the public learned in late March, troubled boxer Adrien Broner faces assault and robbery charges for allegedly robbing a man at gunpoint in January and beating him up outside of a Cincinnati bowling alley. The conflict reportedly arose over a bet on bowling between Broner and one other man.
Allegedly furious that he lost the bet, Broner reportedly demanded his money back. When the other man didn't comply, Broner allegedly attacked him. The story advanced Thursday, as footage emerged showing part of the confrontation that allegedly led to the assault.
Multiple parties can be heard in the video clip obtained by TMZ. Though the video is grainy, one of the voices sounds like Broner's. You can also hear someone repeatedly saying, "A.B., chill," which would seem to indicate Broner's initials.
Fueling correlation between the video above and Broner's involvement in the recorded incident, he posted the following video on Instagram six days before the charges were first reported.

Broner, a 26-year-old who has had multiple run-ins with the law the last few years, has a 32-2 career record.
A representative for Broner did not immediately return Complex’s request for comment.
