WASHINGTON (CBSDC) - Adrien Broner gave an in-ring shout out to Redskins receiver DeSean Jackson in his post-fight interview, after defeating Carlos Molina to win the previously vacated WBA International Super Lightweight title in Las Vegas on Saturday.

Broner, fighting on the undercard to Marcos Maidana vs. Floyd Mayweather – which Mayweather  won via majority decision, unifying the WBA and WBC welterweight titles to advance to 46-0 on his career – had trained for the fight in Washington, D.C.

Broner successfully rebounded from his first career loss to Maidana in December, to advance to 28-1, and gave some quick love to Jackson, who recently signed to the Redskins.

“I really didn’t go through no turmoil in that fight,” Broner said. “Through the whole fight, since I was training in D.C., they got DeSean Jackson, I think the Bengals should get Michael Vick. That’s what I was thinking about.  F*** that fight. We won that easy.”

Although it may seem odd Broner also made reference to the Bengals possibly acquiring Michael Vick, after Vick had already signed with the Jets this offseason, one can quickly dismiss the notion as hometown pandering by the Cincinnati native.

After the fight, Jackson Instagram’ed an old pic of him hanging out with Mayweather.

This is news, guys.

“What he say He Still the #Champ Congrats big bro !! Tough fight one of the best Fights I saw someone challenge u !! But like u said .. Champions find A way to get it Done !! #moneymay #moneyteam #jaccpot”

Another notable D.C. athlete was paying attention, too.
