Boxer Adrien Broner Gives Panhandler $1,000 (VIDEO)

Boxing champ Adrien Broner just made the kind of impact that doesn't knock a man down but lifts him up.

Video posted on Friday shows him giving a panhandler $1,000 in cash. The stranger's reaction -- from disbelief to tear-filled gratitude -- will make your day.

Broner's gesture, which was posted on the boxer's YouTube page, caught the attention of the celebrity crowd as well.

Broner, a three-time world champion, was booed after his victory over Carlos Molina on May 3 when he told a TV reporter he "just beat the f--- out of a Mexican," so it's nice to see the fighter spreading some love instead.
