As for the fight, Adrien Broner defeated John Molina Jr. late last night by unanimous decision: 120-108, 120-108, 118-110.

Per CompuBox statistics: Broner landed 219 of 502 punches (44 percent), and Molina landed just 54 of 299 (22 percent).

With the win, Broner improved his competitive record to 30-1-0 — 22 of the wins coming via knockout.

After the fight was over, Broner had some things to say…

Where was Adrien was going with that comment? Well, you’ll just have to use your imagination … because NBC immediately cut the interview and went back to the ringside commentators.

This isn’t the first time Broner has brought these type of comments into the ring.

After beating Carlos Molina last May: Adrien unleashed similar, racially-infused taunts during his post-fight interview.

After Broner’s fight last year, the World Boxing Council suspended him shortly after for the comments. Only a few months later, the same committee just decided one day that it was ok to remove his ban.

Now that he’s poked the bear for a a second time, will the WBC enforce a retroactive punishment and/or ban for committing the same exact infraction he did in May?

Stay tuned…
