Boxer Adrien Broner

Gives $1,000 to Homeless Man

Gets Incredible Reaction

5/23/2014 7:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Boxing champ Adrien Broner made a homeless man's day ... week ... month ... and probably year -- when he gave the guy $1,000 IN CASH last night ... and the reaction might make you cry. 

The reigning WBA International Super Lightweight noticed the guy panhandling on a street corner ... and with a wad of $100s in his hand, turns to the camera and says "Now this is gonna make his f**king day right here."

He was right ... and when the homeless man didn't think it could be real, Broner gave him a fist pound to prove it was legit.

The guy is going to have a crack party with all his homeless buddies.

That $1000 will bring Adrien more happiness than most any other thing he could have spent $1000 on. When he looks inward he will always be able to see this act and know how it felt.

That is such a beautiful, gracious thing to do. Bless Broner's heart.

The fact that he recorded and posted it makes it a bit self serving and disingenuous. The money would have better served had it been given to a shelter or soup kitchen. This guy can either horde, lose, snot, drink or blow it. He'll probably brag about it and some other homeless guy will kill him for it. How do we know this guy isn't homeless because he is a sex offender?

Very generous, however, I would have asked the homeless guy something about himself, like why are you out in the street, what happened to your face , just to be sure he will hopefully do the right thing for himself, a $1000.00 can give him a start in right direction.....peace

Food for Thought: I once had an older wiser person tell me that Jesus said he was coming back, but he did not say how or when. So, treat people as if they may be him, or atleast conduct yourself as if he were watching.

Another thought, I am reading a host of comments assuming that this guy is not deserving or shady in some type of way. People end up homeless for numerous reasons. There is no one scenario or explanation, but everyone has a story. It may be hard for some of you to fathom, but there are people that try to do all the right things and still end up short.
why? Because, it is all part of life's journey(s). Unfortunately, sometimes life just happens.

This guy someday may end up in a position where he may help someone by "paying it forward." Hopefully, this is just his life at this moment in time, and things will change for him for the better.

Not all homeless people are drug addict.. Good for him! All ****ty people use drugs as excuse to be cheap.. F*ck you hippies! You think he will use it for drugs.. But maybe he is starving to death.. When you give from your heart, you don't care what people will do with it..!

That's nice and all, but to my knowledge he got stomped by Marcos Maidana to lose his title and then barely eeked past some nobody, to not claim any new titles. Bang up reporting as always TMZ. Without a scandal involved, we can't expect you to dig too deeply.
