WBC lightweight champion Adrien Broner (26-0, 22KOs) is open to the idea of facing Marcos Maidana (34-3, 31KOs) later in the year. On June 22, Broner will move up by two weight divisions to challenge WBA welterweight champion Paulie Malignaggi (32-4, 7KOs). Maidana is highly ranked, at #2 by the WBA, and holds the WBA Continental title at 147. 

Following last Saturday's TKO victory over Josesito Lopez at the Home Depot Center, Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer said he was very interested in matching Maidana against the winner of Broner-Malignaggi later in the year.

"I didn't see [Maidana's win over Lopez], but I heard he did get a victory. I didn't see it but Maidana is Maidana. Everybody knows what Maidana bring to the table, but we're worrying about Paulie Malignaggi right now. If the best fight for Adrien Broner after this fight is Maidana then Maidana will get it," Broner said.

In my opinion, Broner should avoid Maidana for now and test his chin by taking another fighter that is not a super puncher. A win over Paulie ain't goin...

Maidana is tailor made for someone with Broner's style. As long as he avoids that right the fight won't be too difficult for him.

[QUOTE=Kingjames6]You do realize fighters progress right?.[/QUOTE] The same applies for Maidana. [QUOTE=louisiaaron]thats not necessarily true about him getting stronger when he is hurt... when i fighter hurts another fighter he usually goes in for the kill which makes him easier to get cou...

[QUOTE=Syf] Maidana is maidana.. as Broner says. Broner knows the deal. He knows Maidana is a straight gangster in the ring. I can't name one fighter in his career that would prepare him for Maidana. He fights all smaller or less strong opponents, usually. And this is a Maidana with a good t...
