MANILA, Philippines—Adrien Broner hasn’t been in a boxing ring for more than a year now and it looks like he still has no plans of getting in between the ropes.

What he plans to do is get a mic and focus on being a rapper.

Broner, who was put in a blender by Manny Pacquiao in his last fight, said he’s hasn’t heard from Showtime Sports President Stephen Espinoza despite his constant communication with manager Al Haymon.

The former four-division world champion felt that he deserves a $10 million offer and he’d only get back to the sport if he’s given one.

“I haven’t heard from Stephen Espinoza. Me and [my manager] Al, we talk every day but ain’t nobody talking about that $10 million. So, I take that as I’m still retired. So what I’m going to do is just focus on my album, and I’m just a rapper,” said Broner.

“I’m a rapper now. S**t. Until they talk about my $10 million, I’m not going to be in the ring. So my album is dropping, and it is what it is.”

Broner, a well-known talker, has been ranting about that multi-million dollar offer for over a week now wherein he’s only willing to fight if Showtime gives him the contract.

“If I don’t get 10 million my next fight, I’m not fighting so @showtimeboxing and Al Haymon that’s where I’m at

Tyson looking at several names for his potential return bout

MANILA, Philippines — Mike Tyson hinted that his return to boxing is imminent, but a fight against Evander Holyfield, the one man who’s been tabbed as his likely opponent, is unlikely.

In an interview on Young Money Radio Show, the 53-year-old ring icon said the contract will be done “some time this week” and that there’s a slew of names who would be his opponent for the exhibition fight.

“We got many guys. Listen we’ve got so many guys who want to do this man,” said Tyson. “We’re in calls, we’re doing business with guys right now. You’re not going to believe the names when the names come out.”

Tyson has been teasing a comeback fight for weeks posting training videos in his Instagram account and showing off that ungodly power that made him an undisputed heavyweight champion during his prime in the 1980s.

His career ended unceremoniously, however, after he lost to Kevin McBride via knockout in 2005, nevertheless Tyson amassed a 50-6 record, with 44 knockouts, and was the undisputed heavyweight champion from 1987 to 1989.

Holyfield, whom Tyson had two memorable bouts in the 1990s, also posted several workout videos and was even training with another heavyweight king in Wladimir Klitshcko.

Tyson, though, seems to be looking at other names and not just at Holyfield for the charity fight that would benefit those who’ve fallen into the wrong substances.

“I’m going to take this money and help these homeless and we’re going to help these addicted brothers,” said Tyson. “Because I’ve been homeless and I’ve been addicted so I know the struggle. Not many people have survived like I did.”

“Whatever money

Ruby Rodriguez is now on her way to recovery days after she was confined to the Manila Doctors Hospital due to stomach pain.

“Good morning! [I’m] [feeling] better,” she said on her Instagram page last Friday, May 22, alongside photos of her on a hospital bed beside intravenous (IV) drips.

However, she says that she still feels pain, “but not like the other days.” Rodriguez also noted that the view from her room helps since it is “so nice” especially during sunsets.

The actress-TV host then thanked her followers for their well wishes while expressing how she hopes to be discharged from the medical center “in a couple of days.” The day after, Rodriguez had her bed placed nearer to one of the windows while she relaxed and watched a show on her iPad.

Rodriguez’s confinement comes after her family lost her older sister Dr. Sally Gatchalian in March due to COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus. JB
