There is something wrong with Sheldon Richardson. It is like he has an adult body, but 12-year-old’s brain. Ironically it was a 12-year-old family member he had in the car with him when he decided to go street racing with a loaded gun under his seat. Why did he do it? Richardson confirms that kid in car was a family member: "Thought it would be fun. He never was in a car like...

Adrien Broner Next Fight Could Be Against Ruslan Provodnikov
