“Broner’s boxing career had essentially weaponized his body, which he used to violently attack [Gonzalez],” attorney Ash Ganier wrote in court papers., according to the Las Vegas Review Journal.
“The incident itself was entirely unprovoked, and he’s really a menace to society. It’s impacted [Gonzalez’s] daily life in many different ways. We’re going to do everything we can to collect against Adrien Broner, but that’s an uphill battle, for sure.”
Broner, who has been away from the boxing ring for quite some time now was arrested over the incident and pleaded guilty for the Battery Charge.
