Broner-Maidana on Tap For Nov. 9? Showtime PPV?

By Rick Reeno

Golden Boy Promotions is planning to stage a Showtime Pay-Per-View event on November 9th. It's no secret that Golden Boy is trying to finalize a welterweight fight between WBA champion Adrien Broner (27-0, 22KOs) and top-rated challenger Marcos Maidana (34-3, 31KOs), for early November.

Golden Boy's CEO, Richard Schaefer, confirmed to BoxingScene that his company is indeed planning to stage a pay-per-view event on November 9, and the MGM Grand in Las Vegas has been placed on hold - but he stayed tight-lipped regarding the planned main event and other details pertaining to the show.

"Our shows on [October 26th and November 2nd], both on Showtime Championship Boxing, would lead into a massive pay-per-view on November 9th, live from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. I can't tell you yet who [is going to fight], because I'm working on it - but if I can pull it off - all fight fans will be extremely, and you can put that in capital letters, extremely happy. I'm not going to let the cat out of the bag, but we are holding the MGM and we are holding the date. It's going to be a spectacular night," Schaefer told BoxingScene.com.

Gotta love the "boxing fans" mocking this PPV. Real fans will pay. Pure streamers don't care about the sport.

Any chance of this being a 44.95$ PPV??? If the undercard is stacked i'd buy it for the oldskool price of 44.95$
