Adrien Broner has reportedly been arrested at the weigh-in for Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder’s rematch in Las Vegas.

Controversial former world champion Broner, 30, was filmed being led away in handcuffs in video footage posted by TMZ Sports .

They claim Broner has been banned from the MGM Grand Garden for reasons not yet clear and was asked to leave when he arrived at the venue to watch the weigh-in for Saturday’s heavyweight contest.

It is claimed he refused to leave and was handcuffed by Las Vegas Metro police officers and led off the premises to be taken to a county jail.

He is expected to be released with a misdemeanor trespassing citation.

Adrien Broner was reportedly arrested at the Tyson Fury-Deontay Wilder weigh-in

Broner, who has held multiple world titles across four weight classes, has not fought since being beaten by Manny Pacquiao at the MGM Grand in January 2019.

He has been no stranger to run-ins with the law in the past.

In October 2016, he was charged with a misdemeanor battery for allegedly choking a waitress at a nightclub in Las Vegas.

He was arrested in April 2017 on a warrant for failure to appear in court for a previous arrest in 2014 and spent a night in Fulton County Jail in Atlanta on a misdemeanour sexual-battery charge in February 2018 before being released on bail. The charges were later dropped due to a lack of evidence.

In December 2019, he was ordered to pay over $830,000 in a settlement for sexually assaulting a woman in a Cleveland nightclub in June 2018.

Broner’s career has been littered with controversy but it is unclear whether he has any plans to return to the ring imminently.

It appears he will not be in attendance at the MGM Grand for Fury and Wilder’s rematch on Saturday night given the result of his efforts to attend the weigh-in.
