Adrien Broner’s fight tonight vs. Ashley Theophane in Washington, D.C., scheduled to be broadcast live on Spike TV at 9PM ET/PT, will go on as scheduled despite a warrant for Broner’s arrest in Cincinnati, Ohio.

In a nod to what Adrien “The Problem” Broner’s (31-2, 23KOs) frenemy Floyd “Money” Mayweather (49-0, 26KOs) has experienced in regards to legal matters not putting the breaks on big money televised fight dates, as per Washington D.C.’s finest, Broner’s warrant for felonious assault and aggravated robbery stemming from an alleged altercation outside of a Cincinnati, Ohio bowling alley was issued provincially in the state of Ohio, so D.C. police are under no official all states order or compulsion to arrest Broner and return him to Ohio in order to comply with that warrant.

To hear Broner speak on tonight’s fight versus game opponent Ashley “The Treasure” Theophane (39-6-1, 11KOs) of England, scheduled for live broadcast tonight on Spike TV from the DC Armory in Washington, D.C. at 9PM ET/PT, he isn’t terribly worried about these warrants either as he steps into the ring, or off of a plane post fight into Ohio Buckeye territory: “I have tunnel vision.  It’s fight time.  I’m locked-in until I get the job done,” said Broner at yesterday’s final fight press conference, adding: “I just want to get home to Cincinnati and hold my baby daughter for the first time.  I want to hold and hug my kids and be the family guy.”

As for Theophane, future opponent or future felon, neither label matters much to the Brit, to hear him tell it, when it comes to any “problematic” issues surrounding Broner: “I’m here to make this happen.  Broner can play games, it’s all good.  I’m here on a mission,” stated the focused Theophane in reference to tonight’s battle for the vacant WBA World super lightweight title.
