Adrien Broner, a former WBC lightweight champ, has offended many people around the world with his words during his post-fight interview after his fight against Carlos Molina.
The World Boxing Council holds human equality as its banner and will not accept a former WBC champion to make racially offensive statements.
Since words can be interpreted in different ways, the WBC is issuing an open letter to Mr. Broner to either clarify his statement, or to issue a public apology if those words were intended to be disrespectful and offensive.
In the meantime Broner has been suspended from participating in any WBC-sanctioned championships, and will be excluded from the WBC ratings until he makes an official public apology.
After defeating Mexican boxer Carlos Molina on the undercard of the big Mayweather Jr Vs Maidana card last weekend, Broner said in a post fight interview: "I’ve beaten up Africans and I just beat the f*** out of a Mexican."
