(AllHipHop News) Tekashi69 is opening the fight against foe Adrien Broner by walking out his opponent Jessie Vargas.
The beef between these two started off oddly, in the comments section on Instagram. Tekashi69 called Broner a clown in the comments section and the rest is history. According to reports, security has been increased for the fight this weekend to ensure there is no outbreak of violence at the fight in Brooklyn.
There has been rumored concern that Tekashi69 and his crew could try fighting Broner, also a controversial public figure with several open legal cases outstanding.
Tekashi implored Broner to "check in" after a number of comments were made online. In an apparent flex move, Broner visited Tekashi's jeweler to make a purported $100,000 purchase since "6ix9ine was here.” Oddly, it has been widely reported that Tekashi's chain cost $300k.
The 28-year old boxer does not have a title on the line and a loss here could be a career-killer even though he has only lost 3 fights. His last fight against Mikey Garcia back in July 2017 ended in a lopsided loss for Broner. Previously, his career trajectory seemed to be similar to a young Floyd Mayweather Jr.
The former four-division champion Broner will for for the big win at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn at 9 p.m. EST, televised on Showtime.
