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.

It doesn't matter what other people think he will do it with it. He had a job but lost it through no fault of his own. You guys need to stop being jerks about it. Everyone thinks it's so easy to find another job, quit yours and we will see how easy it is. You jerks will need help some day and we will remember what you said. No more attention to the clowns, this man felt true gratefulness and he is NOT a drug user. He likely spent some of the money for a warm meal and a room at a hotel, maybe even a month's rent somewhere. I haven't seen him in a couple of years but, I'm thankful there was someone there who could afford to give him $1,000.

That was a nice gesture!! I wouldnt be so quick to call homeless people bums....we dont know their lives or life story..... think about all the veterans that live on the streets!! What negative comment do you have for them....I really wish people would think before they comment!! Everybody isnt the same so you cant go thru life thinking they are!! Have a damn heart and some compassion. ....we are all human!!! Nobody is perfect!!

Is that a dried up bloody nose or dirt? Anyway he might have seen this homeless man all the time- not all homeless are heroin addicts and even the ones that are dont wanna be but no one wants to help them! I hope this guy did something right with the money and i hope he pays it back by getting clean. That would be a great happy ending .

Oddly enough... The kids stepdad commented on a post I made and whatta ya know! The kids an addict who has chosen the street life over family. Did you notice the marks on his face? Apparently he gets robbed and beat up a lot on the streets! According to his step dad, the kid was in line at the free store /drop in center just today! No mention was made of the money when the family talked to him. This boxer didn't do anything other than feed this kids habit by giving him money to contribute to his own slow death! I hope this kid doesn't get beat or killed for that money since now that his face was plastered all over the web, all the other homeless and downtown thugs know who he is! That was no kind of gift! Good job Broner. Hope your who feels better!
