The judge said in the courtroom Broner will have to sit in a cell until he and his lawyers are able to properly provide answers and documents that help lay out a plan for how Broner is going to pay off the judgment against him.
As we previously reported, a woman claimed Broner smothered her and shoved his tongue down her throat at a Cleveland nightclub on June 8, 2018.
The woman went to cops and Broner was eventually hit with charges over the incident. In 2019, he pleaded guilty to assault and unlawful restraint and was sentenced to probation.
The woman also filed a civil lawsuit in the case ... and Broner was ultimately ordered to pay around $800,000.
Broner -- who lost to Manny Pacquiao in his last fight in January 2019 and has been arrested twice since -- said in court Monday he's attempting to return to the ring for a fight in January 2021.
He said after that match, he's hoping to have enough cash to pay off the judgment.
